Service Opportunities

Opportunities for Students, Teachers and Parents

Service Learning Coordinators at the different divisions manage the various service opportunities available for our Elementary, Middle and High School students. In the Middle and High Schools Tuesday afternoon is a time dedicated only to service. In Elementary school, Thursday is our dedicated day to service.

As building strong connections with the communities beyond our walls is our goal. Parents are encouraged to join students, teachers and other parents and share a service experience!
