New spring enrichment option for middle school

Creekside Service Learning Enrichment: 6th-8th Grade

We’re really excited to offer this Service Learning Enrichment program to any 6th-8th grader this spring. We think it will be a great opportunity for our students to volunteer in a meaningful way, connect to their community and understand that they have the power to illuminate the world around them!

When: Fridays beginning after Spring Break, April 24th- May 30th @9-2 pm

Organizations: Bear League, Truckee Bike Park, FoRiver, Sierra Community House, Tahoe Institute of Science (TINS), US Forest Service, Humane Society

Parents welcome! Cost: $25 per student which will go towards costs for a Service Learning notebook that each student will receive at the beginning of the program. Notebook includes reading material, space for observations, as well as pre/post reflection.

Registration: If your child would like to participate, please register on the Creekside PTO website by MARCH 31st. In order for the program to have its biggest impact, it’s important that your child attend at least 5 out of the 6 days, so please keep that in mind when signing up!

Volunteers: We will need volunteers to make this happen! Please let Kathleen Ruffle know if you’re interested in helping out: kathleenruffle@gmail.com
