We have always described Crossroads as a community but now our students are learning about Community in a very concrete way every Friday morning.
Each week the students have an opportunity to learn ways in which they can help others. They learn about the positive influence they have be when helping someone other than themselves. All students participate in "Community Class" but they may choose which form of community service they want to assist. Some weeks the community service is done for our own campus community while other weeks we will be helping outside charitable organizations.
This week, some students helped to organize the library by constructing boxes that will be placed behind the rows of books to allow us to "face up" the shelves and provide better access to books on high and low shelves. In addition to providing a helping hand, students learned two different ways to seal up the end of a box and often worked in pairs to simplify the workload.
We strive to encourage a life-long habit of engaging in Community Service and have found that helping others provides another opportunity to develop positive character traits that make well-rounded, contributing members of society.
