Monsignor Farrell and Saint Joseph Hill Academy Raise $1000 for FOSI

Winter Break.  Two words that bring a smile to the faces of many a high school student.  For most, it means sleeping in late and catching up on much needed relaxation.  But on Monday, February 17th—the official start of Winter Break—Monsignor Farrell and Saint Joseph Hill Academy students were lined up in the Farrell lot at 6:45 in the morning, winter gear in tow, for the annual FOSI fundraising trip to Jack Frost Mountain in the Poconos.

Under the watchful eyes of Father Pomeisl, Mr. Scafuri ’99, and Mr. Youssef, nearly 50 students traveled via Coach Bus on a bright winter morning.  The sky was blue, the sun was shining, and the students were eager to make some mid-season turns on the mountain.

The trip was a great success, with over $1000 being raised for FOSI—a joint charity venture between Saint Joseph Hill and Monsignor Farrell.  Students took part in skiing, snowboarding, and snowtubing; when they grew tired, they sat by the fireplace in the lodge and sipped on hot chocolate. Though it was a busy day for the season, the lift lines at Jack Frost were pleasantly short, giving the group opportunities to ski and ride without delay!
