TMS Service Learning Class

The TMS Service Learning Class has chosen its latest project! Students will be collecting supplies to send to Nairobi.  

Students have chosen to support Sharon Nicks (former teacher and current sub) when she returns to Kenya this summer to volunteer at a school in the slums of Nairobi. Earlier this year, Sharon shared a slide show with the students about her visit last summer and they were inspired to help her.

The students have produced a video that explains what they are wanting to do and includes a lip-sync music video to inspire students to donate supplies that Sharon needs for her trip.  The full video can be viewed on the Central School District 13J Facebook page.

The TMS Service Learning Class is an elective "Focused Studies - Enrichment" class in which students work together to create, plan and implement various service learning projects for the school and throughout the community. Students learn the importance of giving back to the community and how to have positive impact on other people's lives. Students work in small groups or as individuals to brainstorm and plan their projects.
