Children derive great benefit from being part of a strong, safe, nurturing school community. Our students feel known, valued and respected. We also believe that it is important for students to feel connected and able to contribute to the larger community around us. Towards this end, we provide opportunities for students to participate in a variety of service learning projects.

An example of a recent service learning project is our Spruce Street School Community Connector. This magazine is filled with the stories of the people who work in our changing urban neighborhood and were written by our Moving-On students, who are in their final year at Spruce Street School. ¬†Students combined online research with personal interviews to complete the project.¬†Click here to read this year’s edition of the Spruce Street School Community Connector.
