Coming off of an extended closure for many staff and students, it is time to think about serving others. The concept of Service to Others works in tandem with the priority goal of Mental Health.
We have a responsibility to teach the importance of service to others as a school system. Investing in others with the expectation of nothing in return is powerful and healthy. Students and staff are encouraged to volunteer to help others in settings beyond the classroom. School closures taught us all many things, including the importance of human interaction and connections. Service to others will improve mental health for those providing and those receiving assistance.
