Sixth graders at Mason Intermediate recently performed acts of kindness for senior neighbors.
Students in Team Venture participated in a fall community service project to winterize the Deerfield Commons Retirement Community last month.
Students raked leaves, washed windows, swept garages, pulled weeds, cleaned gutters and socialized with residents.
This marks the fifth year for the team’s community service program, which is organized with help from Mason Serves. Students are also encouraged to perform random acts of kindness throughout the year.
“Each year, it is extremely rewarding to see students develop a heart for their community and helping those in need,” said Team Venture teacher Dale Moberly. “They discover that they benefit just as much or more than the recipients of their kind efforts.”
