On May 9th, Chloe McGrath a sixth grader from St. Agatha’s School was given a courage award by the Max Warburg Foundation. She was one of 67 sixth graders. Students are primarily from Boston, and it is also open to students beyond the Greater Boston area, and even Nationwide. The stories were published in The Courage of Children Boston and Beyond Book.
This year the foundation received over 5,000 essays. This program has been publishing stories of sixth graders for the past 28 years. It was founded by the parents of Max Warburg, a sixth grader from Boston who lost his battle with leukemia in 1991. Chloe, 6th grader from Saint Agatha School, was honored to be chosen by this foundation.
We appreciate and thank Mrs Allana Edstrom, who has diligently guided many students through the years to achieve regional and national awards as wella s to achieve great standards at their high school.
