Annual Community Service Day

Annual Community Service Day

On Thursday students from the Birmingham Campus will engage in service opportunities across the region. Our Upper School students have worked with their peers and teachers to identify organizations with whom to partner for the day.

Here’s a list of our partner organizations this year.
• Capuchin Soup Kitchen
• Dixon Educational Learning Academy
• Freedom House
• World Medical Relief
• Bennett School
• Palmer Park Gardens
• Pam Equus Animal Sanctuary
• Arts and Scraps
• Blanket Weaving
• Bottomless Toychest
• Red Oaks

It is an honor to serve and a privilege to step outside our own world to engage in the larger community. In lives too frequently absorbed by screens and interruptions, it is vitally important that our students engage with the larger community directly and understand elements of the world that they may not experience on a day-to-day basis. As I told students today in our assembly, Thursday is a day to be here and fully present.
