Stop Hunger!


What is a Service-Learning Project?

A service-learning project is a civic learning experience that offers students an opportunity to apply skills and knowledge developed through classroom curriculum to serve and/or independent studies contribute to the common good in their community. All service projects must include preparation, action and reflection.

Due to the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s 32nd Annual Hunger Walk taking place nine (September 16, 2017) days into our academic year, the “action” portion was completed first, instead of at the end of the project. However, students will complete the preparation and reflection portions of the project and submit by November 01, 2017 to Mrs. Gipson.
