A Year of Service

A Year of Service

At Episcopal Day, service to others isn't just a core value—it's the heart of our community and a reflection of the Episcopal values that guide us in our mission. Throughout the 2023-2024 school year, our students embarked on an array of service learning and community service projects that not only enriched their educational experiences but also made a tangible difference in the world around them.

Our students embraced environmental stewardship, with pre-k classes learning about composting and gardening, and kindergarteners working to support native pollinators by distributing butterfly-friendly seeds to our community. These early lessons in caring for our planet will hopefully go on to set the stage for a lifetime of environmental awareness and action.

In another heartwarming initiative, first graders built connections with residents at a local senior home. Through holiday crafts and reading sessions, they brought joy and companionship to the elderly, fostering a sense of community and empathy.

Second graders combined business lessons with compassion by creating goods to support the Peninsula SPCA. Third graders collected shoes for Soles4Souls, inspired by a refugee author’s story. Both of these projects taught students the importance of social responsibility and entrepreneurship to foster social good. 

Our middle school students tackled more complex issues. Sixth graders organized a plastic film recycling drive, hoping to educate our community on the importance of environmental conservation. Seventh graders researched gender equality in education and presented their findings and proposed solutions to peers in their classes. Eighth graders delved into systemic racism, studying historical and current injustices and proposing actionable steps to address these issues.

Throughout the year, students in all grade levels made sack lunches for St. Vincent de Paul’s, collected items for Samaritan House, and participated in community events like beach clean-ups and holiday preparations. They also supported global projects and connected with peers in Tanzania and the Philippines.

We are proud of our students' dedication to making a difference. These service learning and community service projects work to not just address immediate needs but also instill a deeper understanding of the systemic challenges our world faces. As we look forward to another year, we remain committed to empowering our students to be compassionate and informed changemakers as they become the leaders of positive change we know they are capable of being.
