To kick off Spartan Service, we have developed a week of activities in which all 1100 of our high school students will have an opportunity to participate in. - Monday - With Meals of Hope, we will package 50,000 meals that will be donated to our local food bank. All students will have an opportunity to package meals that morning. Each meal is balanced, nutritious, and shelf-stable for up to 2 years. - Tuesday - We will send students to serve at our four feeder elementary schools. This will enable our high school students to give back to their former school and set an example to current elementary students for what to expect with service when they get to high school. Activities will vary at each school, but will include reading to students, cleaning up a nature trail, organizing teaching materials, painting murals on walls, and much more. - Wednesday, we will have over 700 students working to clean up our high school and middle school campuses. Students will be working in small teams on a variety of tasks: pressure washing, painting our fence, cleaning, laying pine straw, planting flowers, etc. - Thursday, all English classes will have students write at least two letters to military men and women to say Thank You for your service to our country. Letters will be delivered to service people over Thanksgiving when they are not able to be at home with their families. - Friday will conclude with a pep rally highlighting our students hard work and a keynote speaker from Chick-fil-A talking about the value of service. After our Spartan Service week, we will help students to begin tracking and reflecting on their service hours. Moving forward, we will have a calendar online that increases awareness of on-going service opportunities in our community with an easy way to sign up to participate.

We will work towards raising awareness of our peers and community about the importance of eating healthy, growing our own food, preserving water and protecting the environment. The students will gain a new understanding about living in harmony with nature.

We want to contact shops in the neighbourhood of Turnhout to ask them if we can use their food surpluses. With all these donations and together with a big group of volunteers we can feed more then 100 pauperized peolple. We hope that shops will give more and more food away in the future for the benefit of those who need it.

Our project will allow our students to build an additional resource for our classroom. We are hoping to create a composting and creepy crawler station. This station will allow students to observe and study the various stages of composting as well as experience and interact with live insects, worms, and other native species within the classroom.
