Schneckenburger Elementary School’s ongoing literacy based service learning experience entitled “Students are All EARS (Excited About Reading and Sharing)” was the featured Service Learning Project at the Brown Foundation Service Learning Event held on Tuesday, September 8th at the Pontchartrain Center. The exciting event is for students, teachers, families, and the community to celebrate service learning and the upcoming projects for the 2015-2016 school year. Schneckenburger Elementary School’s students and teachers were honored to have been chosen based on our successful service learning experience, which involves learning, reading, and sharing with preschool students at the Causeway Head Start Center. Last school year, the wonderful second grade (now third grade) students completed an exciting and engaging year of learning, service, and reflection. To celebrate their success, the third grade students and teachers participated in the Brown Foundation’s service learning event. Our school librarian and service learning leader, Mrs. Julie Broussard, and two students, Thomas Gentry and Angelina Monroy, did a great job giving the keynote speeches during the ceremony to an audience of over 1,000 people! This truly was a wonderful event celebrating our school’s accomplishments in service learning and we look forward to continuing with our service learning this school year.
