On this glorious sunny day, MHS students got to do what all students dream of doing at this time of year– break out of the routine and, in most cases, out of the building.
Today was the 5th annual Day of Caring. The event is organized by the MHS student council and is designed to encourage students to give back to their school and community. Students and staff spent the morning working on cleaning and painting projects around campus, making treats for the Waterville Humane Society, and cleaning up community sites like the Belgrade Center for All Seasons and Pleasant Point. Some groups also volunteered at schools around the district, in local nursing homes, and at the local soup kitchen.
This year, the event also served as a bridge between the wrap-up of the spring semester and the Year End Studies (YES) Program which begins tomorrow. Students will finish out the school year taking part in specialized mini-courses ranging from Cosplay and Costume design to Sports Psychology.
Good work today, MHS! Enjoy the last few days, and finish strong.
