After School Club - Community Service
Our after school Community Service club has done some really cool things! Made cards for our local policemen, made cookies for the nursing home, picked up litter in our neighborhood, and made 30 scarves for local residents! As our students work within their community, they learn that they can be responsible for making great things happen. This helps to build a sense of responsibility in students, and a sense of pride when they see what they've done is actually helping others. Students who participate in community service learning tend to do better in school. It's believed that community service is somewhat of a missing link for students, giving them the chance to apply what they've learned in the classroom to real human needs!
