Academic Service-Learning Update for November, 2011

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our collection for the Education Project! All materials are being delivered to our WISD contact this week so that they can be distributed to area youth. There are also six wonderfully decorated Boxtops collection boxes ready to start collecting points for area locations that work with homeless youth. Thank you to the fourth and fifth graders who took the time to do this!

Another thank you to Kelly Krawcke who is currently working with Food Gatherers to get collection bins into our school. As soon as our bins are delivered we will be welcoming all non-perishable food items. This collection will run through the rest of this month and into the beginning of December.

Students will participate in the first assembly of this school year later this month. At that time we will recognize students who completed 50 or more service hours during the 2010/2011 school year, including a middle schooler who will be sharing some of her personal AS-L experiences. We will also recognize those who participated in this year’s walk/run-a-thon. This event raised a significant amount of money for our school and gave students an opportunity to enjoy some fresh air and exercise. Finally, this assembly mark the beginning of students’ goal setting for personal service hours. Look for a total school goal and tracking graph on the AS-L board in early December!

Thank you to all who have been recording and turning in AS-L logs. Remember, blanks are located on the wall outside the after care office and completed forms can be turned in to a base teacher or directly into Johnny Thompson’s mailbox.
