Sophomores and freshmen took a break from class work last Wednesday after taking the PSAT that morning. The students participated in community service projects for a variety of locals organizations. Faculty and staff accompanied the students and worked with them. The tenth grade class went to CJ Stewart Ranch in Clinton where they did some clearing off and cleaning up. The camp (formerly Camp Kickapoo) will serve as a home for Down Range, an outdoor adventure camp helping youth develop character traits and life skills by learning to overcome challenges. Ninth grade divided into three groups. One group went to The Little Light House, a tuition-free developmental center that serves children with special needs. They helped prepare for the upcoming Laps for Little Ones 5K and Fun Run by painting signs. Another group went to The Good Samaritan Center, an organization that serves families and individuals in crisis situations, where they organized the clothing closet. The third group worked at Hope Hollow, which offers one-of-a-kind camp experiences for kids and adults with special needs. They cleaned and organized the storage rooms.
