Students of the Middle-High School’s English and art departments have devoted aspects of their assignments to helping others as part of their Service-Learning Project.

Ninth grade English students completed their project and unit of study on the literary selection, “The Odyssey.” They identified the traits of a hero and completed a research assignment on heroes in our society. For the service portion of this project, students began a fundraiser, “Jeans for Troops.” The money raised was sent to the nonprofit organization GI Go Fund to help our everyday heroes, veterans of war.

High school art students completed their project and unit of study on 3-D art appreciation and created larger-than-lifesized games. For the service portion of this project, they donated their projects to the middle school for students to enjoy with their peers at recess or after school.
