- Learn about the issues
- Develop an action plan for service
- Engage in meaningful service by working on a project that will make a difference
PreK-3 and PreK-4 proudly support the St. Jude Trike-a-Thon each Fall.
K through 5th grade students support St. Jude by participating in the annual Math-a-Thon.
Students participate in Fall and Spring service learning projects in every grade level beginning in PK-3. Teachers are encouraged to explore a wide variety of local, national and global charities before making their selecting of the service learning projects for the year. Service learning projects are planned and worked on as part of morning Leadership Academy on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during homeroom time. All service learning projects follow the PARC model, which emphasizes Preparation, Action, Reflection and Celebration.
Galloway has developed a school service learning handbook to ensure all service learning projects follow a proven model of success with all forms of service learning projects. When our students are out in the local community working to enhance the lives of humans and animals in need, we want Galloway students to exemplify excellent citizenship, good manners, and uphold Galloway’s core values (Integrity, Compassion, Diversity, and Faith.)
