BMS 7th Graders Make A Difference
As a follow-up to the Challenge Day experience, Brady Middle School seventh graders were given the opportunity to put into practice some of the lessons learned through that program as they were encouraged to “Be the Change”.
Members of the Student Mentoring/ Pride Leadership Team developed a service learning unit that culminated in opportunities for students to engage in a service project to assist others and make a difference in society. As part of the project, students were given the opportunity to learn more about service and how it can benefit others, whether in school, in the local community, across the country, and even internationally. Service projects included arrangements with The Borgan Project (an innovative national campaign working to address global poverty and assisting the world’s poor), the Cuyahoga County Library, Kiwanis, the Metro Parks, Special Needs Programs throughout the Orange Schools, the Orange Senior Center, and in-house projects that included chalk murals and letters to soldiers in the Armed Forces.
These service learning opportunities were presented to students who were then asked to choose from the list based on preference. Each Team spent one afternoon working on the various projects with the goal being to provide students witha more comprehensive follow-up to Challenge Day.
