New Service Learning Program Started

New Service Learning Program Started

Our Middle School Alternative Program has initiated a Service Leaning Program. As part of the program, each student is required to complete 30 minutes of service learning each week. Mrs. Courtney Chandler, our Restorative Interventionist, coordinates this program. Service learning gives students an authentic educational experience while teaching empathy. That's about as important as it gets. Through service learning, students get a chance to contribute to our school community and learn that they can make a difference. There are many benefits to service learning such as developing leadership skills and abilities. Some of the activities in which our students participate are peer tutoring, assisting in our garden project, assisting custodians with tasks around the building and assisting teachers with small jobs. Students enjoy the opportunity to give back to their school.
