ACHS is implementing service learning opportunities

By Robin Loy, College and Career Readiness Counselor, Adair County High School

Efforts are under way at Adair County High School to implement service learning opportunities as part of the transition readiness course that all students take at ACHS. Each group has brainstormed ideas and planned events around the school campus and out in the community during the month of November.

Mrs. Teresa Giles, ACHS Information Technology Instructor, arranged for her students to visit Dollhouse Daycare. During the visit the students read stories, played dress up and used Lincoln logs and blocks to make things. Mrs. Giles said, "They had fun in general as they interacted with the young kids. It was a great experience."

Be on the look out for more stories about how ACHS students are giving back. Our time is one of the most valuable gifts we have, and ACHS is working to develop graduates who understand the importance of being engaged in the community.
