Elementary Student Guides Head Up Care Kit Project

Elementary Student Guides

The elementary Student Guides program offers students an opportunity to follow Christ in servant leadership roles and to gain decision-making skills. Representatives from each grade level are elected by their classmates and meet regularly to choose and coordinate service projects for the elementary school, and to discuss and recommend solutions for issues that may arise (such as playground clean-up).

Servant-Leadership in Action

The Student Guides are in the process of coordinating their spring service project: Care Kits for Seattle's homeless people. Over the next two weeks the elementary students will be collecting items in our classrooms for these Care Kits.

When I’m outside with the children, there’s no official curriculum agenda. I have lots of time to hear their tales of loose teeth, new running shoes, and plans to play Legos with Daddy right after school. Read more >> about "Go Outside and Play"
