EDGE/EXCEL Service Day

Business partners and non-profit organizations are key to our EDGE/EXCEL authentic projects,internships, and mentorships. If you are a current EXCEL/EDGE student OR a prospective student, feel free to join us! The community has done a lot of us this year in terms of giving back and we'd like to do the same. On May 1st from 9:00-12:00, we would like to offer you the opportunity to join Mrs. Greenfield and Mrs. Hyman for an Arbor Day Celebration. We will be planting up to 150 seedling trees, educating the community on tree species, planting specifications and other science-based topics and giving away one seedling per family/individual that comes out to plant. Hours would be able to count towards NHS volunteer hours or Silver Cord Hours, plus volunteering looks really good on resumes and applications. Many of you are realizing the importance of that right now. If you are able to join us even for part of the day, please complete the following form.
