We are excited to share that our Spring service project was a huge success! Collectively, our students brought in 455.8 lbs of caps and lids to donate to the WCP park bench project for the Waterloo Community Splash Pad.

The winning classes were: 6th grade - Mr. Beck, 7th grade - Ms. Hitpas, and 8th grade - Mrs. Diener! Thank you to the family members who donated to this great cause!
