Families “Do Good” at Robbinsdale Schools’ Annual Night of Service
The three International Baccalaureate schools in the Robbinsdale district hosted the annual Night of Service this past week. Students and families got to “do good” at service tables that benefited a variety of charities.
The activities encouraged action and included activities suitable for students ages 5 to 18. At one table, volunteers let students decorate bags that would be used as luminaries at the next Relay for Life at Cooper High School.
“They represent someone you lost to cancer or someone you want to honor,” said Mackenna Theis, one of the Relay organizers.
Another “Do Good” table encouraged families to get connected.
“We are creating tip bags that are conversation starters that families can have at home, on text message, or in the car,” explained Kristy Couture, a parent-educator at Annex Teen Clinic. “We are making one and taking one. Then we will be giving them to the food shelf.”
“Doing Good” is part of International Baccalaureate Curriculum
There are three I-B schools in the Robbinsdale school district. Teachers from Lakeview Elementary, Robbinsdale Middle School, and Cooper High School helped coordinate the night of service.
“One of the tenents of the IB program is action,” explained Kari Christensen, one of the coordinators. “It has been really good to partner with community partners and they appreciate us reaching out to them.”
