  • Service learning is a deliberate process through which students can develop skills, knowledge, and civic awareness while making meaningful contributions to their communities. The Service Learning Board, grade 3-6 representatives, encourages involvement from the student body to put service into action. Please share your ideas as we remember to whom much is given, much will be required. Click HERE to review the process to propose a service project to the Service Learning Board.
