Character and Service

Heifer International Service Project

An important part of the learning experience in Early Childhood is the opportunity to reach out to the wider community.

Community Service is integrated into the curriculum through collecting food for the Food Bank, earning chicks for Africa and a mitten and hat tree for inner city children. Yearly a class may find other opportunities to give back and help to instill a feeling of empathy in our young children.

Mini-Chapel is a monthly activity held in the library. The Early Childhood students gather and have a lesson that ties to a moral issue and what it means to do the right thing. Informal lessons are continued in the classroom as part of our Character Education program.
