Community Service Learning & Community Outreach

Community Service Learning (CSL) integrates community service projects with academic study to connect classroom learning with the real world. To strengthen our community and teach civic responsibility, we guide our students out of the classroom and into the community to participate in experiences that offer a better understanding of the issues and challenges all communities face. We ask students to identify problems and design solutions. At the core of CSL is the intent that both providers of the service and the recipients find the experience beneficial and even transforming. 

Our CSL program is designed to relate to each grade's curriculum and provide age appropriate community service experiences to enrich learning, promote an awareness of the needs of others, and teach civic responsibility. 

Throughout the year, we seek opportunities to reach out to our neighbors to walk the walk with our students and demonstrate in a meaningful way the importance of getting involved. We partner with and support our local businesses.
