Emerson middle schoolers and faculty moved out of their classrooms and into the community on June 3, rolling up their sleeves for several local service agencies. A full day was devoted to learning about the organizations and volunteering time and effort to the good work these organizations do.
Emerson’s Middle School Community Service Day was organized with the assistance of the Youth Volunteer Corps. Eight agencies were involved: Natural Area Preservation (Dolph Park), Growing Hope (Ypsilanti), Avalon Housing, Huron Woods (St. Joseph Mercy Health), The Oaks, VA Medical Center, SASHA Farm (Manchester), and Peace Neighborhood Center.
Civic engagement and responsibility to a wider world are important values of the Emerson community. Our middle schoolers make us proud.
