Middle School Community Engagement
The Middle School Community Engagement program supports Menlo’s commitment to teaching students to become ethical, responsible, and engaged members of ever-wider communities and to develop a sense of commitment to purposes larger than themselves.
The program exposes students to significant social issues and empowers them to take action.
Knights in the Community Service Week
A full week of immersive community service learning programs includes hands-on global service projects and field work in the local community, along with guest speakers and curriculum. Learn more in this KnightLine article about the first Middle School Service Week.
La Vina Lowery, Middle School Director, shares that the program, “allows us to bring community speakers on campus, develop thoughtful curriculum, and help and support schools, organizations, and the environment outside of Menlo. It is more important now than ever before to teach students that everyone’s well-being is interconnected and that the students have the power to make a positive change.”
