Community Service

We emphasize responsibility and commitment to the community

We challenge students to become valued contributors to society and to feel the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that comes with works of service

Each class generally does at least one major project each year and often teachers organize additional smaller projects for their classes. For instance, the Kindergarten/1st grade class may host a bake sale and donate the money or the 4th/5th grade may collect coats and warm clothing to be donated. Our Middle Schoolers  spend a few hours every trimester giving back to the community.
