Students Choose Their Mission Field

On October 7, students from Chico Oaks school served their community in unique ways. Each class team chose an act of kindness for someone in their community.

The kindergarten class collected donations for the Butte Humane Society and delivered them to the animals. Students in first and second grade gave out flowers and appreciation letters around the neighborhood. Third- and fourth-graders picked up trash while grades five to eight tidied up a local park and wrote letters to neighborhood veterans.

Principal Leslie Bartsch said, “These service opportunities set Adventist education apart from the rest. When academics and acts of service show love to our neighbors, we can foster an atmosphere of quality instruction and spiritual growth.”
