Eighth Grade Community Service Projects

Eighth grade students recently completed their MYP Community Projects. These projects are an integral component of an International Baccalaureate education; students are required to plan an "action" that will have a positive impact on their communities.

We're nearing the end of the semester, and our students are as busy as ever! While it's always inspiring to see how hard they work on their studies, it's equally inspiring to see them in action outside of the classroom. Our kindergartners explored how the world works through a puppet show on waste disposal and recycling. Our eighth graders presented community projects, ranging from nutrition to homelessness -- a culmination of an average of 15-25 hours per group. We're also excited to see a class of 2014 alumnus compete in the 2018 Olympic Winter Games (keep your eyes peeled for a feature in the next La Gazette)! These are just a few examples of how proud we should all be to see our mission come to life, both on and off our campus.

Gilkey Students Advocate for Homeless
Friday, December 01, 2017
Are you struggling to find ideas about what to do with your family over Winter Break? Well, we feel your pain, and we have come up with some ideas to spice up your holidays. Our names are Avery and Olivia and we both attend Gilkey International Middle School as 8th graders. As 8th graders, we have to do a community service project and we chose homelessness as our overall concept. One of our main goals is to spread awareness about homelessness and to get people engaged in helping their community. The holidays are the perfect time to get engaged. After all, the holidays are a time for giving back to your community and a time when everyone is in the holiday spirit!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As we enter the holiday season, FAIS is thankful for the number of ways our community is giving back. This past Tuesday was #GivingTuesday, and our social media offered a glimpse into some of the things our students are doing to lead the way. Our Middle Schoolers are working on their MYP Community Projects, which include advocating for the homeless, collecting toys and clothes, and reaching out to the greater Portland community. Third grade students are ensuring that our salmon eggs (featured in last week's La Gazette) stay alive and thrive. And all of you -- our adult community of parents, teachers, grandparents, and friends -- are ensuring that in this season of giving, our students hold the values of global mindedness and caring for our neighbors.
