This is our second year with H2O for Life. Last year, the students participated as part of a Health Class. This year, in an ongoing effort to increase service-learning opportunities for our students, we are offering 9 sections of a Service-learning class. Last June, we began a tradition of an H2O for Life 5K Fun Run. This year, with more students and staff involved we're looking forward to even greater success.
The preparation at DeLaSalle High School fosters the development of students who are of service to the local, national, and global community both during and after their formal education. A cornerstone of this preparation is DeLaSalle's innovative Global Advantage Program. This program serves to create international citizens through academic travel. DeLaSalle faculty and partner university professors collaborate to develop rich academic experiences. These experiences combine rigorous academic work with international travel. Students in this program are expected to demonstrate curiosity and civility; preparation and participation.
Diamond Path goals include helping others in our communities, nation and world plus learning about cultures and countries around the world. H2O for Life projects enable us to accomplish both these goals.
Divine Mercy Catholic School is working this year to complete a list of both corporal and spiritual Works of Mercy. At our school we encourage our students to serve others through their time, talent and treasure. Every month DMCS students raise money for an individual charity. They also do projects during Advent and Lent. This year we felt called to do one large project as opposed to those smaller ones. This project called to us in that it went beyond the giving of treasure but helped to fulfill a schools basic need. We look forward to completing the Corporal Work of Mercy: Give drink to the thirsty.
Support my Service Learning Project which is for a WASH (water and sanitation hygiene) project to be implemented at schools in Kenya. Kathungu School and Nasaruni School. Come see me at Marketfest on July 11th to purchase homemade dog treats. I am close to meeting my goal! ($5 per bag) If you live outside of White Bear Lake or don't have a dog to treat, please consider a donation to my project-click on the donate now button. My friends and I are excited about this service and entrepreneurial opportunity!
My school wants to participate in this project so that we can change lives. We are very committed in making this project successful. We would also love to learn about different cultures and this project will give us that chance and in addition, we will be able to learn about water, its effects and impacts.Our goal is to make sure children of this generation get a chance to have a good quality education with good hygiene and succeed in life so that they too can make a difference in other people's lives. We want to expose students in East Ridge High school to global issues and how life is different in other countries.This is a new club in our school but we are planning to make it one of the best so that the incoming students of the next years can keep projects going. Fellow students and I are very excited for the goals we will accomplish, the things we will learn and the fun we will have. This a chance of a lifetime which is to change people's lives and make them smile. Thanks H2O for Life!
8th Grade Science students at FAIR School Crystal were shocked to learn that many people lack access to clean water. This spurred students to ask the question, "What can we do to help?". Students are proud to raise funds and do something positive to make a difference in the world.
These 4th graders (from 2 classes) are a community of diverse learners who strive to make a positive difference in the world! Understanding that clean water is essential for life, we want to help others to have access to this vital resource that we often take for granted.
We have the opportunity to provide a transformational service-learning opportunity for our students through H2O for Life. Our students will study issues surrounding the global water crisis, learn about their partner school and country, and will plan and implement activities that raise funds to help bring water and sanitation to our partner school. We want our students to know that by working together, we can make a difference in the world! We hope that all students in our school will benefit from our partnership with H2O for Life. Students will be challenged to think about their own habits concerning water usage, and will develop awareness of the enormity of the issues surrounding water in our world. We hope our school will be committed to make this project for our partner school a reality.
