    The 6th grade Day of Service

    The 6th Grade Day of Service is an annual Northeast Middle School event for students.  Service Learning is our organic way of demonstrating our commitment to Character Education.  It is one of the most authentic ways to learn and grow while being civic stewards and supporting others.  Service Learning represents who we are as a Northeast Middle School family.  Today, our students dedicated more than 44,000 minutes of service and amassed the following: 

    • Fresh Start Bags for women transitioning out of homelessness
    • Greeting cards for soldiers through Project Boomerang
    • Fleece blankets for Home Sweet Home.

    In addition, other students spent their day serving and learning by:

    • beautifying the NEMS campus
    • preparing “hello/goodbye” packages for kids at Our Little Haven
    • putting together “Thank you” packets for volunteers who serve the residents of Kingdom House
    • compassionately running stations at the Creve Coeur Manor Nursing Home and Rosewood Care Center
    • learning about early literacy and helping elementary school students at the Parkway Early Childhood Learning Center North with reading and writing tasks
    • exploring non-profit organizations in Markerspace Market Place
    • building bookshelves for the Markerspace Market Place
