Skinner Students Making a Difference

This Friday, April 20th is Skinner Cares Day. Everyone at Skinner Middle School believes that our students can make a difference through making positive changes in our community, so our Learning Families work throughout the year to build a community of stewardship and show Skinner cares through service learning and community service projects.

All Learning Families will engage in community service or service learning either at school or in the community on Friday, volunteering at the Denver Rescue Mission, Argyle Nursing Home and Comfort Cafe, seeing the movie, “Bully” and cleaning up graffiti in the neighborhood, among other projects.

Research also shows that students who participate in service learning 1) increase motivation, engagement and attendance in school, 2) demonstrate higher levels of personal and social responsibility, 3) treat each other kindly, help each other and care about doing their best. Students are empowered by making decisions about issues they care about. What a win-win!

One of our learning families is having a car wash to raise money for diabetes research. One of the learning family members was recently diagnosed with Type I Diabetes and the other students in his learning family wanted to help. Please come support our students by bringing your DIRTY car over to Skinner for a wash!
