September: "Clean up clean up, everybody do your share! Clean up clean up everybody everywhere!" this is a green project where we will be going around the school picking up trash and recycling paper, plastic and glass products to keep our campus looking clean and fresh.

October: Trick-or-Treat- We will be hosting a trick-or-treat event for elementary aged students in the community at our school. We ask that each student bring in at least one bag of candy. We would love for the students to participate as well passing out candy and helping conduct the games. Students helping out are encouraged to dress up to help promote this event.

November:Food for Thought/Operation Give a Kid a Coat- we have two service projects going on this month. The Food For Thought Project is for those that cannot afford to have a Thanksgiving dinner. We would like students to bring in canned goods, boxed stuffing, and hams or turkeys if possilbe. Operations Give a Kid a Coat is to help those that cannot afford to purchase a coat. We ask that students bring in new or gently used coats for this drive. We will be continuing this community service project throughout the Winter season.

December: Operation Give a Kid a Coat/ Toys for Tots-Operation Give a Kid a Coat is a projection continuation from last month. Toys for Tots is a project to help unfortunate families with the holidays. Students if you have old toys that are still in good shape that you no longer have use for please bring them in. If your family would like to donate new toys that is great as well.
