Our Exemplary Project
Henry's Helping Hands Creating Community Connections through Service Learning
Patrick Henry's school focus is more than just Community Service. We teach our students the importance of good citizenship by making real-world connections through projects which are directly linked to the curriculum. This is Service Learning. Students begin to see the importance of their roles in a community because they have been educated in a particular area of study and have been given a choice in how to "Make a Difference," based on a need in our local or global community. Each grade level's Service Project focuses on an identified APS Gifted theme.
You can see what is happening at each grade level, by visiting each link on the Exemplary Project page. There are many wonderful pictures, documenting what is happening from Kindergarten through 5th grade.
