Grade 7

In seventh grade, our Markers focus on the community aspect of service learning. Students participate in many service learning projects based in the larger community. Two of our school-wide service learning projects led by the seventh grade are We Scare Hunger (October) to collect donations for Keystone Community Services and Water for Life (Lent) to raise awareness and collect funds for safe drinking water throughout our global community.
