Learning to help others: Community Outreach at the Lower School
Community Outreach in the Lower School is organized on a grade level basis, with each grade participating in an activity with coordination and assistance from parents and teachers. Recent projects have included the first grade penny drive, in which students conduct a school-wide drive to collect coins and then purchased items for the Families in Transition program organized by the Pasadena Unified School District, as well as the fifth grade food drive at Thanksgiving.
The program is designed and taught collaboratively with the classroom teacher. Projects are in a variety of forms that include all students in a class.
