On Friday, May 27, four hundred EMS students performed over 800 hours of community service. With the support of a grant from the Vermont Principals Association, Edmunds middle schools students found countless ways to give back to the community they live in. They were all “agents of help”. From a car wash that raised over $700 for the “Make-a-Wish foundation; to students picking up a truckload of trash along the intervale, the scope of our community service day was felt throughout the Burlington community. The service learning activities encourage participation in the school and the community, and provide students with an opportunity to feel connected to the social world they live in. Friday’s morning of community service is a great reminder of what a wonderful group of students we work with, and how rewarding it can be to see how our efforts help them learn and grow. Be sure to ask your child about their contribution to our community service morning.

Connecting to our community: In January, two 6th Grade teams partnered up with Young Traditions Vermont and the Vermont Folklife center for this song analysis project. In addition to analyzing a song that was important to themselves, they learned about the music important to Vermonters from different cultural backgrounds.
