On April 17, 2018, St. Anthony School was awarded a $3,400 grant from the Leon H. & Clymene M. Bond Foundation. St. Anthony School is a small Catholic School in Oconto Falls, WI. Since 1913, St. Anthony has been offering quality, Catholic education to families in the Oconto County area. They are presently the last remaining Catholic School in Oconto County, and so remain an intricate part of the community.
The grant funds helped purchase school uniforms for the 2018/2019 school year. This benefitted everyone, including students, parents and staff. Studies and experience show uniforms encourage better classroom behavior, improve overall school demeanor, and instruct students in how to dress appropriately in public. Most of all, they instill in the children that their person is not shaped by the latest fashion trends, but rather their character.
