SLWK-8 Gifted Students Serve the Community

SLWK-8 Gifted Students Serve the Community

Our S.A.G.E. Academy at SLWK-8 (1st through 8th grade advanced/gifted students) participated in a community project to help senior citizens have a brighter holiday season. The students had to create holiday images onto 250 bags which would later be filled with items for 250 senior citizens who receive services from the Meals on Wheels program throughout the Treasure Coast. These holiday-filled bags bring joy to those senior citizens receiving them along with an appreciation that they are important and thought of by others in the community. This activity helped to facilitate a deeper understanding and discussion amongst the students about the importance of citizenship and community involvement.
