A non-traditional team building experience prepared Madison Heights Elementary School for the start of the 2017-2018 semester. Despite the busyness of back to school, Madison Heights principal Pricilla Gossett and her team spent the afternoon serving at Feed My Starving Children in Mesa. The local non-profit tackles world hunger by connecting local volunteers to pack food for children across the globe in life-threatening circumstances.
The teacher team-building is part of a project called Heights Helps and involves teachers, students and Heights’ families. Their goal is to contribute 600 hours of service to the community during the 2017-2018 school year. Feed My Starving Children was selected for this event because it allowed teachers to work together, get to know each other better, and help improve the lives of children – Madison Heights’ primary focus.
Each grade level at Heights will also be completing different service projects throughout the year as part of Heights Helps.
