At 9:00am on September 11th, students at The Learning Center Charter School gathered in front of the school to remember and pay tribute to the victims of the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. After observing a moment of silence, the students mobilized into groups to perform acts of kindness and service across campus and the community.
Some students spent the day picking up litter along the local roadways, streams and hiking trails while others remained on campus and performed beautification projects such as tree trimming and weeding. One group helped construct the newly expanded Aquaponics garden while another created new games for one of the school’s playgrounds. Several students operated a car washing station where they washed teacher and staff cars.
“This year’s event marked the eighth year in a row we have performed community service as a means to honor the lives lost on 9/11,” said Mary Jo Dyre, school director. “Our annual day of service not only honors those victims, but develops the character of our students as well.”
