Each year the entire Middle School takes one day to go out into the Las Vegas Valley to serve those around them. Advisory classes connected with local non-profits, schools, and businesses. Many of the locations have been re-occurring partnerships that we hope to continue for year to come. Watch a video for highlights from the day and read reflections from the teachers about why serving is something all kids should do!

"Coach Rood and Coach Schwartz Advisories went to Lincoln Elementary School. We have formed a partnership with this school over the last two years. Several of our middle school sports teams have gone to serve at Lincoln, with our main goal being to encourage their students and teachers, and to help fill their food pantry. Before our service day we prepared by selecting the grade level each student wanted to work with and by brainstorming a way to encourage that class and teacher. We also prayed for the school, students and teachers. On that day, we arrived, and went to help in the classrooms, one student per class. The students loved having our students and were surprised with the small gifts that they received. We brought our lunch and ate with each class and played at recess with them. We left feeling like we had shared lots of love, light and encouragement with our adopted school." Mrs. Lisa Schwartz
