Shaping Students’ Hearts with One Great Day of Service
The Christ School’s One Great Day of Service is this Friday! This event involves the participation of all students and faculty, as well as parents, who will spend their day serving in the community.
Each grade will be helping with age-specific activities at various community service facilities. Service activities range from cleaning park facilities to organizing and distributing donations. Not only are they providing much needed volunteer services for the local community, the students’ educational experience is enhanced by learning more about the community in which they live.
This heartwarming experience teaches a valuable lesson – donating their time and energy brings joy, not only to themselves, but to others. Each child walks away from One Great Day knowing what it means to look beyond themselves to the needs of others, and to love their neighbors as themselves.
Volunteering is a great tool to help children boost their social skills as they reach out and connect with their community. The Christ School knows the benefits of volunteering are enormous to the students as well as local organizations they will serve. Dr. Jason Powell said, “The Christ School mission is intentionally focused on cultivating the scholarship, service and leadership skills of our students. Our vision is that each TCS graduate is committed to being others oriented. On Friday, October 11, all of our students will experience a powerful day that will help shape their hearts.”
