When we talk about service with kids, we try to get them to recognize their strengths—what they want to share with people, what they feel they can bring to the table. The community service board has almost outgrown its purpose, because service is happening everywhere. It’s happening in the academic world as classes are getting involved. The modern language department is trying to figure out how students can use their language skills to help people. The art department has done a lot of different things with ceramics. A commitment to service has permeated the school.
