Giving back to our community

Our students are expected and given the opportunity to share with, and give back to the broader community. Students in all grades find that community service gives them an opportunity to nurture compassion for others and to better understand themselves. Through community service students learn how to work successfully in cooperation with others and how to be active members in our community.

 

Our youngest students are introduced to service by exploring the concept of community and what it means to help others. Coloring placemats for homebound elderly, learning to recycle and teach others about recycling, and singing at retirement centers are just a few ways our preschool and kindergarten students learn to give back.

 

Lower School students begin to exercise their voice in choosing the types of service to do. They have been ambassadors in taking care of the school grounds, baking cookies and hosting the Police and Fire Departments, conducting toy and blanket drives for the Child Advocacy Center.

 

Middle School students take charge of their community service and what they want to do. Serving at the Randy Sams Center and collecting hygiene products, reading to children at Opportunities, Inc. each month, and writing letters to our veterans are just a few ways Middle School students participant in giving back to their community. We thank your teachers and parents for guiding and helping with these important activities that help to teach our children to care for others.
