What is Service Learning?

  • Service learning is an educational method that connects community service with classroom learning. It enhances the learning process, motivates students to achieve and provides an educational experience that is relevant to the community as well as the student.

    In GVSD, students at all grade levels have the opportunity to participate in service learning projects. In the elementary grades, activities are imbedded in the curriculum. In line with the district mission, we want "to ensure that every student is inspired and prepared to be a passionate lifelong learner and a productive invested participant in the local and global community."
