My Project

Our school has created a new program where students will be actively participating in place-based experiential learning and volunteering in our community a couple of times each month!

This project is for Four Community Service Experiences that will provide all of our students with the opportunity to create a carnival for students in our local community from different schools; a chance to work with local and state pet rescues to provide much needed supplies from their wish lists with students putting together pet care/adoption packs to deliver to the rescues; and allow students to put together care packs for the homeless and wellness packs kits for first responders.

Students will have the chance to meet students from the community and invite them into our school for a carnival filled with a variety of games, including "Dunk the Principal/Superintendent", plinko, etc. and enjoy tasty treats fresh from the popcorn cart and snow cone machine! Students will also experience working with pet rescue organizations that are struggling due to multiple pandemic-related reasons as they create pet care/adoption packs. Finally, students will create care packs to provide to the local homeless population as well as wellness kits for first responders in our area!
