Service Learning Projects

Our students are committed to making a difference in the community. Therefore, each classroom has created a philanthropic mission, which affords them the opportunity to donate funds and/or materials to a noble cause. Listed below are the highlights of the effort and impact of each grade.

Ambassadors For Change

Feed My Starving Children

UNICEF and United Canned Food Drive. UNICEF is a world-wide organization that works to improve the lives of children. Every October, CEE students participate in a Trick or Treat fo UICEF and collect coins for the organization. Money raised goes towards fighting poverty, providing clean drinking water, and education in underdeveloped nations. One of our CEE Enrichment Groups has also joined the New Global Citizens organziation. Our students are hard at work helping to raise money for APOPO rats in Africa.  We are also proud to host a canned food drive for the United Food Bank – a great local charity organization. this is one small way that we can encourage our students to develop compassion for others in our community.
