Weekly eNews: November 9th, 2017



Yesterday, our elementary students spent part of the school day volunteering at their annual Community Service Day. The Pre-K through 4th grade students assembled care packages for our local hospitals, assisted living facilities and homeless shelters. Middle school students traveled off campus to work at nursing homes, orphanages, schools and many other non-profits. I am truly impressed with our students' understanding of serving those in need in our community. Together they made a difference by actively participating and showing they care. Please take a moment to watch the video below to see the difference out students are making within our local community.
