What is Hillview Service Team?
Hillview Service team is a student-driven, parent-run lunchtime club that meets twice a month in the PAC with about 50+ students. The goal of the club is to give back to the community, and have fun doing it!
Last year, we did projects to support the Ronald McDonald House, Martha's Kitchen and Save the Children--each was a remarkable example of parents and children working together for a greater good in our community, country and world. This year, we have several new projects under consideration, including cleaning up our Bay and partnering to support a school in Kenya. For all kids that join us for 2 or more projects, we will offer a "Certificate of Service" at the end of the year.
As you probably know, doing for others FEELS GOOD. It's a developmental asset that helps kids and teens learn and thrive. We want Hillview students to actively engage with service to others in a very meaningful way.
How do I join?
We hope a record number of Hawks will join the team online using their Schoology account and code: SZXR-5X57-FPVVB. This is where all information about the meetings and projects will be communicated. Our Service Team kick-off meeting for those interested kids will be held during lunch this Thursday, Oct. 13th in room 12B!
The team parent leaders are Brandee Barker and Dana Goldstein partnering with teacher leader Sarah Dara-Abrams. And we hope more parents will volunteer on select projects throughout the year--we can always use many helping hands. Any questions can be directed to Brandee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
