Shuksan 8th graders participate annually in Service Learning projects.  What is Service Learning?
It’s a chance for students to connect what they have learned in the classroom to a real community need.  This project provides students with an opportunity  for a hands on, practical experience in an area of interest for them, while meeting a need in our community.  All of their work links to what they are learning in school.  While the work done is through various volunteer agencies, it is NOT volunteerism.

Here are the sites that are hosting our students this spring:
