Service Learning Projects
"Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities."
Through service learning, Prairie Crossing Charter School strives to guide our students to understand the needs of our local and global communities.
Our goals for service learning:
These service learning experiences are tied into the curriculum and used as springboards to classroom learning.
All PCCS students, beginning in Kindergarten, participate in Service Learning Projects each year. As early learners, projects are conducted as a large group in the classroom. As students get older, they begin to take more ownership of their projects, working in small groups to achieve objectives they create. When PCCS students are in 7th and 8th grade, they complete an extended service learning project, known as a Culminating Project.
