Middle School Service Learning

All Bosque School middle school students attend twice-monthly Service Learning class that is integrated into the 10-day class rotation cycle. Each grade focuses their time on initiatives associated with a particular prescribed theme. Bosque School 6th graders explore a sense-of-place by focusing on our campus as a community and ecosystem. They manage both the recycling and Lost & Found programs on campus, while learning about cycles of waste and systems of sustainability. Seventh graders explore causes and implications of poverty and food insecurity, as well as solutions moving towards food justice with the premise that everyone has the right to fresh, healthy food. Students volunteer at local community gardens, food pantries, Roadrunner Food Bank, and other community-based assistance services. Building on the previous year’s theme, eighth graders delve into promoting literacy among our community’s at-risk children. Through long-standing partnerships with local Head Start sites, our students read and play with pre-school children, and develop friendships with their young “reading friends” as mentors to inspire a love for life-long learning.
