SBHS Freshmen were out and active in our community Oct. 16 for fall FCSD (Freshmen Community Service Day)! According to Peer Leadership teacher and Health Educator Erin Randall, freshmen community service day has been a tradition at South Burlington High School for several years.

"Every 9th grader is in an advisory group of about 12-15 students," Randall explained, "with a teacher and 2-3 junior and senior Peer Leaders (These advisory groups are called 'SLAMs' which stands for Student Leadership Advisory Meetings). Slams meet twice a week for 25 minutes at a time. Peer Leaders plan communication, decision making, and team building activities for their groups in addition to being role models. The junior and senior peer leaders are accepted into the program by application and they meet in a Peer Leadership class every other day taught by Hannah Dransfield or myself." 

In the fall, community service is conducted for half a day. Then, in the spring, the entire day is spent doing service projects throughout the community. See all of the locations students visited this fall below.

Shelburne Farms, Orchard School, Ronald McDonald House, Common Ground Center, Ascension Childcare, Folsom Elementary, Shelburne Museum, Chamberlin School, Catamount Family Center, Georgia Elementary, Shelburne Museum, Grand Isle School, Learning Adventure, Orchard School, Central School, and Homestead 1475.

Kudos to all who took part!
