  •  Community Service Learning
    St. Patrick's Day- CLS  
    The girls from Ms. Mowrey's STRIVE group visited the Westfield Rehabilitation and Health Center on St. Patrick's Day, bringing hot chocolate and smiles to the residents. They learned how to interact with people who have limited verbal ability and are confined to wheelchairs. The girls reported being nervous before they interacted with the residents. By the end of the visit, the group had grown so comfortable they wanted a return trip!

    Project Unify 2015  
    The ELMS Project Unify Club joined the campaign to end the R-word also called, "Spread the Word to end the Word". It is the goal of the club and the Special Olympics organization to let students know that when they use the word "retarded", they hurt people with learning disabilities. The members of the Project Unify Club talked to the East Lee Students during lunch to convince them to stop using the R word and to sign the banner pledging not to say the R word anymore.

  • Free Rice Scobbie 2015
    Mr Scobbie's Strive Group has donated a total of 802,870 grains of rice so far this year. Please help us reach our goal of reaching 1,000,000 grains of rice by the end of the year and help do your part to end world hunger. See Mr. Scobbie for the username and password.
     
    Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme.
     
    Freerice has two goals:
    Provide education to everyone for free.
    Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free. 
     
    Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself. Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide.
