8th grade continues to dive into service learning
The projects have been personally selected and is self-directed. They started the process of looking at their personal interests and passions in January and have been working to find ways to apply those interests to help others. Students met again on February 10th with their coaches and had their 3rd IB Community Project meeting. This month, students each met to continue research and prepare to put their plan into action in the community within the next 2 months. Coaches asked that all students plan for time outside the classroom between now and the next community project meeting (March 17th, 2017), in some way.
We greatly appreciate the partnership SPS students and parents have to developing caring and compassionate young men and women. Service learning is an integral part of building character and has always been at the heart of SPS mission and vision. We invite you to ask any 8th grade student about their project or what their next steps are in helping to serve another.
