The Campus and Community Connection elective with Mr. Dean boasts the benefits of getting outdoors and providing campus and community improvements such as small campus projects and community cleaning. Beyond the obvious benefits to the community and the environment, cleaning up our campus and neighborhood is a simple project that students really connect with. They see the impact of their work immediately and notice it each time they return to that place, which will reward them with a sense of accomplishment, pride, and stewardship. Here the elective group paints sign boards to help out the first grade teachers.
