Community Service

Windermere Preparatory School’s dedication to community service reflects our deep belief that we are our best and truest selves when helping others. Students learn at an early age that they can have a positive influence on others and the world around them through community service. 

Winston Churchill said “You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.”

Such a sentiment is the rationale behind the Windermere Preparatory School Community Service program. Encouraging students to give of themselves puts both the “virtus” and “unitas” of our crest into action. 

High School Community Service

Windermere Preparatory School uses ManageBac to record all community service and International Baccalaureate CAS activities for High School students. Each student has a personal account linked to his or her email address. Through ManageBac, students can see upcoming volunteer opportunities, record activities for pre-approval, write reflections, and send supervisor reviews for documentation.

All community service activities must be unpaid in order to receive credit for the hours. Community service activities should benefit a non-profit, educational, or government organization in need.

Middle School Community Service Trips

Sixth Grade - Society of St. Andrews

Sixth Grade students work with the charitable group called the Society of St. Andrews. This organization goes out to area farms and collects in season produce that is left behind after harvesting. All collected produce is then passed on to area food banks. Windermere Preparatory School donates collected produce to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.

Seventh Grade - Environmental Ambassadors

Seventh Graders, deemed our “Environmental Ambassadors,” help at nearby Windermere parks and organizations, helping to enforce a green community. Because their science curriculum is Earth Science, the Seventh Grade students help on campus as well, tending to the middle school garden, and hosting the popular Environmental Day for the community.

Eighth Grade - Give Kids the World

The Eighth Grade class volunteers their time at the Give Kids the World Village, a remarkable organization that provides children with life-threatening illenesses and their families a week of “escape” at this kid-friendly village. Our Eighth Graders help throughout the village, readying it for visitors.
