Video: WISH Students Making a Difference in our Community

This Spring, WISH Charter launched its annual Trimester of Service Learning, with community service activities chosen by each of the WISH classes. Service learning projects are a way to connect curriculum standards to community experiences, giving students an opportunity to learn in a hands-on way, and to see the difference they are able to make in the world around them.

WISH students were involved in choosing their individual classroom projects, which included a variety of art projects, environmental activities and fundraisers. Transitional Kindergarten students created cards for patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Our Kindergarten KA and KC classes participated in cleaning up the Ballona Wetlands, while the KB class held a lemonade stand fundraiser to purchase books for the Children's Hospital. First graders worked together, creating art which they gave to residents at the Sunrise Assisted Living Center in Playa Vista. WISH students in Second and Third grade decorated pots and planted flowers. Fourth grade teamed up with a film school to make a Public Service Announcement against bullying.

Check out this great video put together by WISH parent Chris Keller, of our inspiring WISH Students! And thank you to WISH mom, Eve Keller for working with our WISH teachers and students to support these amazing service learning projects.
