WTHS Scholars Volunteer at Elementary School

07/27/2011

Warren Township High School Schuler Scholars’ first Social Awareness and Action project of the school year was a resounding success. Twenty-five WTHS scholars volunteered to provide childcare for Woodland Elementary School’s first graders while the first grade parents attended Curriculum Night.  The delighted screams of six-year-olds filled the air as scholars led games of “tag” and “red light, green light” on the playground, played basketball, supervised rope swings in the gym, and shared their favorite children’s books.

Organized by Scholar Coach Madeline Gray as part of Schuler’s Social Awareness and Action program, it was the WTHS scholars’ second time volunteering for the Woodland schools of Gurnee. Last winter, WTHS scholars helped distribute canned goods for Woodland Intermediate School’s holiday food drive. WTHS’ Schuler Scholar Program plans to continue this partnership with the Woodland schools in the future. Aubrey Estrada, WTHS Freshman Scholar, says “I think it was a good experience for us to give back to our own community.”
