Junior Day of Caring
Current sophomores who are interested in applying to be on the Student Leadership team to plan the Junior Day of Caring for next year should submit an application to Student Services by May 4th. The application can be found by clicking the link below or copies can be obtained in Student Services. Junior Day of Caring takes place each year in September and is counted as a school day, but the learning will take place outside the walls of a traditional classroom. In order to help foster a spirit of integrity, empathy, and civic responsibility, students will work with their peers and teachers to serve the Hendricks County community. Groups of students and their designated chaperones will be dropped off at various locations such as nursing homes, elementary schools, town libraries, nonprofit organizations, and community parks to volunteer for the day.
Wednesday, May 4, students are on a one-hour delay schedule.
