“The September 11 National Day of Service is fast becoming one of the most important and inspiring service days in America. The powerful idea behind it is to honor the memory of 9/11 with the most fundamental acts of citizenship possible: volunteering time to serve one another.” - From www.servicenation.org
September 11, 2010, marks the second annual National Day of Service. The student leaders of the Community Service Board (CSB) invite you to honor the day by pledging to join one of the many CSB-sponsored events and projects for the 2010-2011 year. The list is forming and will include many annual events co-sponsored by student clubs and organizations. Please check the weekly parent e-mail for specific dates and information.
* September 11 - Nobles Cross Country and student group Campuses Against Cancer will sponsor a FUN RUN/WALK to support Children’s Hospital. Contact Mark Sheeran or Marissa Shoji.
* September 12 - 2010 Jimmy Fund Walk. Volunteers (15) needed to work at Refueling Station #2 in Ashland. Hours are 5:45-10:30 a.m. Great for early risers. Contact Linda Hurley.
Many Upper School students spent time working on summer service projects. Please consider sharing the experience in Assembly, Class Meetings or during X-Block. Journals and evaluations should be submitted to the office by September 17, 2010.
We look forward to working with you. Your ideas are welcome and we appreciate your support.
Linda Hurley and Louis Barassi
