Springfield Middle School Students Embark On Day Of Service In Fort Mill

FORT MILL, S.C. — Students at a Fort Mill middle school are working to make a positive impact in our community.

Springfield Middle School students embarked on a day of service on Monday, November 25th.  Six hundred and eighty-four students partnered with 26 local organizations.

The student body spread out among the organizations to engage in service learning projects.

The partnerships included the Ronald McDonald House, Anne Springs Close Greenway, Operation Christmas Child, Samaritan’s Feet, Habitat for Humanity, Fort Mill Schools, Pathways of Rock Hill, and Keystone Substance Abuse Center of York County, among others.

Seventh and eighth grade students at the school planned and organized the day of service.  The students researched local organizations, called businesses, and arranged opportunities with the different groups.

Following Monday’s service-learning project, students spent the day reflecting on how their experience creates compassion for others and the community.

In each class, students created an artifact showcasing how each subject area relates to their service project.  A digital portfolio will be created by each student highlighting their new knowledge.
