Many of our high schools are sponsoring student educational tripsthis April, and we try to help out as much as we can. English High is taking a service learning trip to Belize, and BLA is going to Italy to promote global awareness. The Burke is going to the Dominican Republic to work with children at an orphanage. Students will prepare meals, activities and paint the orphanage. They will bring school supplies and clothing to the children at the orphanage as well.
These are each great opportunities for our students and show a great charitable spirit among our students and staff. Every month we try to feature a school at our membership meeting with the hope of raising funds to help offset the cost of these trips. English High will be present this afternoon, the Burke next month, and a BLA representative will be coming over as well today to sell raffle tickets. Students from these schools will fundraise and explain to our membership what they are doing and why.
All schools are more than welcome to list events and fundraisers in this space. Just let us know. We thank all for doing such great work.
