SS Peter and Paul School, in West Chester, won the Grand Prize of Finish First With Milk, a contest sponsored by the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60. The contest was created to teach students about the health benefits of drinking low-fat and fat-free milk. The students were elated when they learned that Eagles tight end, Brent Celek, will visit the school on Dec. 6 to celebrate the victory
Diane Gabriel, the school’s kitchen manager, said she had a hard time keeping up with the milk order from participating students.
“Entering this contest helped our students get excited about the health benefits of milk. It was a win-win all around,” said principal Margaret Egan.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
