Grade 7 Students Spend the Day Making a Meaningful Difference in San Diego

A big part of a Parker education is becoming a global citizen-one who can make meaningful connections between local and global communities. Middle School organizes three Grade 7 Community Awareness Days every year. Providing the students three opportunities to spend a day outside of the classroom to focus on giving back to their community.  

On Wednesday, Feb. 14, Grade 7 students spent the day at seven organizations around San Diego. Activities included working with students at Empower Charter School and EES; ensuring a clean community at Canyonlands and We Love a Clean San Diego Adopt-a-Beach organization; learning about community services in the Linda Vista area; and helping at Feeding America, San Diego Food Bank, and the Potiker Senior Center.

After each outing students get to debrief with their advisors and talk about what they learned and what it means to make a meaningful difference in your community.
