Here are some examples of how our students open their hearts to help others.
Lower School students participate in a variety of service projects organized by the Lower School Student Government or grade level groups. The lower school works with organizations such as Ronald McDonald House, Food for the Poor, the American Heart Association and other local charities.
Citizenship at the local, regional, national and global level is a valued piece of our Middle School program. Formal opportunities for service are offered for students in Student Government, the National Junior Honor Society, Samaritan 365, the National Spanish Junior Honor Society, the Global Goals course, Recycling Club, advisory, grade level programming and in many more. These groups adopt charities and work on projects to raise money and goods through donations from dress down days, the sale of candy grams, and hosting dances and movie nights. They also actively participate in beach cleanups, visits to local non-profit organizations and on-campus service.
Every spring, all Middle School students participate in a school-wide service project in which they gather food to donate to 100 local families in need. Students spend Leadership Day collecting food, packing boxes, and giving back to those in need.
