Outreach Opportunities

Opportunities for Families to Help Our Community

Throughout the school year, students in every grade will be participating in service learning projects. In support of our core value of Dedicated Service, we’re also pleased to share our new Outreach Opportunities web page, with ideas for how families can also participate in service opportunities right here in Southborough. Two local food pantries, the Southborough Food Pantry, and the Southborough Community Fridge and Pantry, have let us know that there is an immediate need for donations of both perishable and non-perishable items. Drop-offs to either locations could easily happen during daily pick-up or drop-off as the locations are just on the other side of the street from our campus. Adding an item or two to your weekly grocery list can have a positive impact on others in the community.  It can also help to build habits and awareness in our own children as they participate in this meaningful work.
