Community Service

Community Service an activity you do that benefits to the community as a whole. Examples might be, picking up trash along a roadway, collecting aluminum, selling it, and giving the proceeds to the Orphanages, helping to cook food at a homeless shelter, being a volunteer tutor for a local school, donating blood at a blood drive.  Community service is important as it brings the community together in helping us learn that others do care about our neighbors no matter where they live. It also unites the community in knowing what is needed, how to fix what is needed, and where to go when fixing is needed. 

Starting from grade 9 up to grade 12, we assign Community Service as the students are fully aware and responsible enough to participate. Some of the projects we have done over the past year are:
  1- A Bake Sale: the students collected foods and beverages to sell during the Turkey Shoot event with the proceeds donated to the Children’s Cancer Fund  57357.
  2- Sports Day: The students helped in keeping order and had a Bake Sale for charity.
  3- Race for Life: the students helped by encouraging the racers and collecting approximately 3000 LE for the children with cancer 57357.
  4- KG Two Parties: the students of community Service helped in keeping order, hosting parents to school campus, presenting the parties and guiding parents to the mini- Book Fair which was held in the KG area.
  5- Art Exhibition: the school held an Art Exhibition for the students' projects and Art Works of all grades. Community Service students kept order, guided parents to the Exhibition area and explained the displayed items to the visitors.
  6- School Uniform: the Community Service students came up with designs to replace the  school uniform from KG to grade 12.
  7- Posters: the students of the Student Council designed posters and hung them around in the school to promote school cleanliness, lost and found items, and football matches.
  8- Photographs: the Community Service students took photos at all the school events and made videos for them as well. 

The school administration and the American School Principal assign portions of the final grades  for the Community Service as motivation to urge students to share and  participate. By giving a helping hand to people in need they are able to discover their own hidden talents and potentials.
