Most of middle school has likely heard of the beach clean-ups or other volunteer opportunities available at Saint John School. Since the school is so involved with service projects, the teachers are always open to ideas and new ways for the students to get service hours.
“I did volunteer once,” explained sixth grader John Paul Colucci. “I did it in the summer. I went to St. Francis School and church, and I served food to the homeless”.
One of the ideas the middle school science teacher and homeroom teacher Mrs. Gena Heins has had is local beach clean-ups. Jake Woltman in eighth grade said, “When I have time, I volunteer outside of school.” Students can participate in the beach clean-ups with their friends, alone, or even with family.
This is only one of the many great volunteer opportunities Saint John’s has available. They have opportunities for Miracle League, Operation Shoe Box for seventh grade girls, and Fall Festival. In middle school, students are required to have at least one hour of service per trimester which comes to a minimum total of three hours throughout the whole school year. This gives students many opportunities to have fun while helping out their community. Also, many people feel rewarded.
Sixth grader Megan Hallinan said, “I feel like I made people’s day after volunteering.”
