Last year, the fifth grade tried something new for its community service project. We wanted to help any rising seventh- and eighth-grade students who were searching for inspiration for their own future community service projects. The fifth graders compiled a list of service learning opportunities about which they knew. We distributed this information before the end of the school year so students could work on earning community service hours during summer break. We're going to continue this valuable project this year. Further details are available in a handout given to students today in class, but feel free to contact me for more information.
We’re also looking to tidy up the Chinese Garden later this spring. Anyone with gardening experience and advice will be most welcome!
