Students at EDS are required to do Community Service each trimester. Many students choose to do their community service by working in K-5 classrooms on a regular basis. These students support younger students by running centers and/or reading and working with individuals. Some students stay after school to help with the K-5 Homework Center. Students also have shared their time by working in the Husky Café during family events such as Family Math Night and Movie Night. Other Community Service activities have included Moreland Woods clean up days, campus beautification, and work with outside service agencies.
Each Halloween, all Middle School Students plan and facilitate a Harvest Festival for the K-5 students. They create games and activities that have included a Costume Runway complete with runway music and an MC, Haunted Houses. Other games include Wrap-the-Mummy, Face Painting, Cake Walk, Pelt-the-Pumpkin, a Scavenger Hunt and an Obstacle Course. The Festival is always fun to plan and wildly popular with the K-5 crowd!
During the fall trimester, middle school students participate in a Community Service exploration day to learn more about the opportunities they have to serve their community.
COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENT: All students will be expected to participate in some kind of community service during each school year. This requirement relates to activities students will experience in their advisory classes, in addition to being a requirement in terms of qualifying students for participation in Honor Roll events. To complete this requirement, opportunities will be provided both on and off campus in a variety of service areas. Information regarding opportunities, timelines and requirements will be sent home early in the school year, in addition to being posted on the Community Service board.
