Senior Community Service Day

On a Friday in late April or early May the whole senior class devotes a day to community service. This tradition began in 1995 and gives students an opportunity to give back to the communities that have given them so much.

Students sign up to participate at a class meeting held in February. They can form teams and indicate a preference for what kind of project they would like to work on. Each team selects a captain to coordinate their efforts.
A committee of seniors helps the Community Service Program staff organize the day. Local agencies are contacted and projects developed. Then teams are matched with the projects.
The committee arranges to have a t-shirt designed which is given to all seniors participating.
Students contact local businesses to invite them to be sponsors of the day.
The faculty organizes and prepares breakfast for the seniors before they head out for the day.
