Students learn the joy of giving through service club at ILA

Fifth graders, at Independence Leadership Academy, participate in a Service Learning Project funded by the Brown Foundation. Service learning is a learn-by-doing approach to the curriculum, sponsored by the Brown Foundation, and accomplished through a partnership with Belle Maison Nursing Home. Ms. Sharon Philipson and Mrs. Catherine Maklary, 5th grade teachers at ILA, support the students learning in the Service Club.

Through the service learning program, ILA students are making a difference in the community in an intentional way. The students are following the service learning steps of investigation, preparation, action, reflection, demonstration and evaluation by linking what is studied in the classroom to addressing a community need. This program encourages students to apply academic, personal and social skills in improving their community, to continue their individual growth, and to become better citizens.
