It wasn’t until I began to make reflection an active, and significant, part of my life that I realized just how much learning happens all of the time, even if you’re no longer a high school student — and especially when you’re engaged in service learning.
Service is at the core of who we are. It furthers our mission of preparing students for a life of purpose. Through the program, students practice empathy, understand citizenship, and begin a lifelong habit of service.
In every division, students engage in on-going projects on and off campus. Through these projects we build rich partnerships with the surrounding community. The projects are also linked to the curriculum, expanding the classroom and allowing students to see the world beyond themselves. There are also several school-wide donation drives and fundraisers throughout the year.
This week, we join the Middle School Trailblazers to reflect on how we can create positive, meaningful change in our lives and our community.
This week, the Middle School Trailblazers join our entire Middle School community as we learn what it means to "live like a penguin."
