The 7th and 8th Grade learning community, Team Renaissance, has taken on the yearly task of gathering thousands of food donations for the holiday season. Their collected food is turned over to a local distribution organization called Operation Happiness. Students research the need for the food donations and come up with a media campaign to motivate families to share food with Operation Happiness. Typically, regular digital announcements are posted for students and families to read, and tabulations of the donations made along the way are made public. This is a great community service activity for our older students to engage in. It is incredible how generous everyone is year after year.
