Middle School Community Service

After developing and planning service projects in the community, Emerson middle schoolers got to work on Friday morning, November 11.  Raking leaves in a residential yard, working on trail maintenance at Miller Park, decorating cakes with seniors at The Oaks – there were plenty of good deeds to be done!

Middle School Community Service Days are part of the school’s Service Learning Curriculum.  Students learn about non-profit organizations and volunteer time and effort to the good work these organizations do.  Contacts come primarily through the Ann Arbor YMCA’s Youth Volunteer Corps.

This was the first Middle School Community Service Day of the year.  Good work, everyone!
