It was a great opportunity to branch out of Foggy Bottom and help an elementary school that was having trouble finding parent volunteers
Once again, I did off-campus service at Lemonade Day DC, where I went to a DC elementary school to help my students plan for their lemonade stands to be run on the official Lemonade Day, which is April 27th. Since the students were on Spring Break on 4/19, we were there an additional hour longer than usual.
This was my third time doing off-campus service at Lemonade Day DC, and I continued to work with my young students to help plan their lemonade stands for Lemonade Day on April 27th. I was unable to get a picture of myself this time with my students, but I attached a picture of the signup genius we use.
I helped pick weeds from the hay and helped hang up the new lights for the greenhouse
We helped organize the new lights for the greenhouse and then planted kale for a local elementary school
I did more off campus service at a charter school in DC for Lemonade Day to teach 4th graders how to run lemonade stands
During my service at the greenhouse this time, I helped maintain the hay that was growing by picking out the tall grass that was growing in the hay.
For my off-campus service, I am working with Lemonade Day DC. Each week, I go into Roots Charter School near Fort Totten in DC and help 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students plan a lemonade stand that they will set up in April. I teach them about the various business skills that go into running a business, such as getting materials, having a partner, and setting financial goals.
This was my 3rd time volunteering at the Greenhouse, and I helped plant kale, lettuce, and radishes to give to a local elementary school.
