A group of thirty-three Brooklyn High School students took the opportunity to give back to the community by raking leaves at the homes of Brooklyn residents on Tuesday, November 8th. Participating students along with Assistant Principal Matthew Larson visited approximately seventeen homes of residents identified by Brooklyn Senior Center Assistant Coordinator Kathy Messeri as requiring assistance with their leaf pick-up. Brooklyn City Council Member Andy Celcherts also assisted with coordinating the event and provided materials to assist with the raking, while the Brooklyn City Schools Transportation Department transported students to each designated home. The service project was a rewarding experience for our students, as community members expressed their sincere appreciation for the students’ efforts. On behalf of the Brooklyn City Schools, thank you to all participating students for representing the district with Hurricane Pride and making a positive impact in the community.
