Helping the community one school at a time
The beginning of the school year for the Heritage High School Student Leadership class started off with a challenge of teamwork and organization. The Student Government-based class teamed up with Littleton High School to help deliver school supplies to both middle and high school students in need in the Littleton Public Schools District.
The project was initially started last spring when money was donated by the Student Government members to go toward the service project.
“My favorite part of the project is the fact that we were helping kids who are in our community which makes the project close to home and to the heart,” says Sierra Johnson-Golding ’15.
The community service project, which was headed by Mrs. Kristi Brethauer, involved organizing the school supply lists, shopping for what the students needed and dividing all of the items by school and grade. The project was completed not only in the Leadership class but time was put in by the members on off-hours and outside of school as well.
“This project taught us a lot about organization and communication not only amongst our Student Government but with the representatives as well,” says Abbie Bardales ’14.
With the school supplies delivered, the Heritage Student Government can see the impact of the project on the community.
“We are helping the people who are here and in our lives. I don’t think we can help anyone outside of our world until we try to fix our own problems,” says Johnson-Golding. “And that is exactly what we did when we tried to help kids in our realm.”by
