11 May Carroll County Service Week
Springdale is committed to the idea of servant leadership, the notion that we lead through our service to others. Students learned about this concept during our January 11 Community Assembly through Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous sermon, “The Drum Major Instinct.” From May 8 through May 16, our school will engage in a variety of service projects throughout our community. These projects are a learning experience designed to develop a sense of engagement, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen our sense of community. They also give us the chance to practice life skills, such as organizing, leading, speaking, and collaborating.
Service learning is most effective when students reflect on their experiences. Students will create a video reflection on May 16 at the conclusion of 8 days of service. Look for highlights on social media!
