Broadfording students help in the community

June 08, 2009

On April 17, students at Broadfording Christian Academy performed community service projects as part of their annual Serve-A-Thon event.

Students in grades kindergarten through 12 took a break from the traditional classroom for a different kind of learning experience - helping others through service projects. These service projects serve as valuable learning experiences, as well as networking opportunities for future volunteering.

The following organizations benefited from a day's worth of work by BCA students: Cedar Ridge Ministries, Western Maryland Hospital Center, the American Red Cross, Hagerstown Area Pregnancy Center, Washington County Free Library, Discovery Station, Star Equestrian Center, Antietam National Battlefield, Camp Tohiglo, Cove Valley Youth Camp and Cumberland Valley Relief Center.

Younger students sang and shared hugs with residents at Loyalton Assisted Living on April 15.

"Once again, I am very proud of our students. Every group did a remarkable job. These kids have learned how to make service work fun and meaningful. Our hope is that they will carry these positive feelings into adulthood. A well-rounded education goes far beyond the classroom setting, and that is why our Serve-A-Thon day continues to be a valuable tradition at Broadfording Christian Academy," said Elizabeth Luhn, Serve-A-Thon director.
