Cedar Hill Preparatory School is dedicated to reaching out and helping our neighbors within the larger communities. To further this mission, we are pleased to announce the continuation of the CHP Service Learning Program for our students. The focus of this program is to help our students become more aware of the needs of others and to get involved in helping to provide for those needs. This will also afford our students an opportunity to develop leadership skills. Even our youngest students can begin to develop the qualities that develop within a framework of Caring and Sharing.
As part of the Service Learning Program, we will have a monthly food drive led by our House System. All grades from Kindergarten through grade 8 will participate in the program. All of the Houses will take turns on a rotating basis. Together with Mr. Seeley, House Leaders will have an opportunity to deliver the collected items to the Franklin Township Food Bank.
