Lancaster City Schools Students Complete 62 Acts of Giving to Community

Lancaster City Schools is proud to announce that the students and faculty, along with their families, completed 62 acts of giving to members of the community in need this past holiday season.

These acts reflect the district’s commitment to one of the three elements of its Portrait of a Graduate model, specifically Caring, which emphasizes empathy and a commitment to the community.

“All five elementary schools, the Bridges and preschool programs, both junior high schools, and the clubs and classes at the high school provided countless meals, toys, cards, clothing, and winter essentials to the people in our community most in need this winter,” said Superintendent Nathan Hale. “At the beginning of the year, we committed to a year of joy and if this level of generosity doesn’t illustrate joy, I’m not sure what does.”

In addition to working with one another, many schools and clubs also partnered with local organizations such as the Salvation Army, Fairfield County 2-1-1, area churches, and non-profits, furthering their lesson in collaboration.

“The Board and I have been impressed with the coordination displayed by our faculty and the willingness of our students and their families to participate in these acts of giving, “ Hale said. “Undoubtedly, a positive ripple effect will result from their kindness.”
