S-GI high school Griffins Day of Giving
Sunday September 1, 2013 | By:Vincent Vanderlip |
The staff and students of Springville-Griffith Institute High School have long understood the importance of contributing to the collective effort of improving our community.
However, beginning this fall, the members of the high school will be working together, like never before, to deepen the impact and increase the scope of their community service.
As a school, we are initiating a program aptly titled “Griffins Day of Giving.”
On two separate occasions, this school year, once in the fall and again in the spring, all members of the senior classes, along with their teachers, will take to the streets, parks and other community entities to help beautify and benefit the members of our beloved community.
Each student will spend one full day engaged in service, with the opportunity of learning the value of volunteerism.
We are seeking groups and organizations that can use our assistance. S-GI HS will deploy approximately 80 students and staff, with the goal of making a profoundly positive impact on the greater Springville area.
If you are a director or member of a community organization who could use our assistance, or if you have suggestions on how we may best go about improving the community,
I encourage you to contact me, the principal at S-GI High School, at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “SGI HS: Griffins Day of Giving.”
Our staff and students will be in action from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on the following dates:
– Oct. 18, with a rain date of Oct. 21.
– May 30, with a rain date of June 2.
As a school, we look forward to partnering with our neighboring organizations that make Springville a great place to live, learn and serve.
