It’s community service week for middle schoolers at The Miami Valley School and the students are taking their learning and giving off campus and into nature and the community.
A group of 8th graders played bingo with residents at Greenwood Manor and shared their musical talents. Vera Menafee did a solo of “Over the Rainbow” and encouraged the residents to join in.
“This visit was driven by the student’s interest,” Director of Community Purpose Tekeia Howard said, “they were inspired to engage with the residents again after visiting last semester.”
Student-led learning is a hallmark of The Miami Valley School, which prides itself on supporting lifelong learners.
Another eighth grade group worked with Centerville-Washington park at Beck House where they focused on conservation efforts. The group got right to work weeding thistle and pulling invasive garlic mustard plants.
