Service beyond self: Community Outreach at the Middle School
The Community Outreach Program in the Middle School offers all students the opportunity to learn more about their community and to be of service to others both locally and globally. Each week during block period students support a wide variety of programs including Union Station, Mothers’ Club, local elementary schools, and Poly’s own primary grades. Although not required, students are encouraged to engage in service activities. One of the main emphases of Middle School community outreach is service learning, in which outreach projects are integrated into the curriculum of classes.
