Helping Hands

The Helping Hands is one example of a student group that arose from an interest in playing a part in improving the community. A team of 6 students, the group focuses on developing new events and activities for the school. Projects have included: making and selling food items to enhance school events and supporting the transformation of the Night Hawk Nest. Most notably, the Helping Hands have initiated a relationship with a convalescent home that is located just blocks away from the school. Twice a month, the Helping Hands volunteer and engage in various activities with the residents. Students have led arts and crafts and gardening projects that have helped to nurture empathy and cross-generation relationship-building.
