*No Homework Tonight
Today was our final official day for service learning presentations! For me, it is bittersweet. I am sad that the projects are coming to an end, but so incredibly proud of the work that the students have achieved. Well done to all students who have completed service projects this year! I think this year, students assumed more responsibility with their projects than any other group I have taught. Well done, and thanks for all of the family support that made these projects possible.
Today projects included:
Reese created kits for people experiencing homelessness to help them in the winter.
Theo did a project that donated used soccer equipment to people in need.
Sonia did a project with Secondhand Hounds and transported some animals in need.
Natasha visited Feed My Starving Children and shared about her experience.
Ben made homemade soup with his family and gave it to people in need.
Cito helped a dog in need in his neighborhood and gave it a bath before bringing it to the animal shelter. Since the dog did not have any identification, this was the best option.
Chaz has been a student leader helping with our school’s Unified Sports team, which supports students with disabilities. Chaz has been assisting in some of our special education classrooms as a student leader and has been extremely helpful in assisting students in need.
Andrew W. worked on a project with Secondhand Harvest and helped to pack pears and rice. He is planning to make another trip with his family.
Jocelyn raised money by selling apple cider to buy toys to donate to the Masonic Children’s Hospital.
Students also visited the media center today. Have a wonderful evening!
