High Tech Elementary North County makes lunches for Interfaith clients

Interfaith welcomed second graders from High Tech Elementary North County to our Betty and Melvin Cohn Center headquarters in January for a special volunteer project. During their visit, the students assembled over 150 sack lunches to be distributed to the individuals who attend Interfaith’s daily morning meal.

“My favorite part of today is that I am helping people,” said Michayla, one of the second grade students.

Curriculum at High Tech Elementary North County is rooted in project-based learning; the school’s faculty guides students through the creation of projects designed to develop their understanding of the world around them. Together as a group, the students create something that demonstrates their new understandings to a real audience, often outside the school walls. The classroom’s visit to Interfaith tied into a lesson about spreading kindness in the community and being superheroes for social justice.

Interfaith thanks the second graders from High Tech Elementary North County for their hard work and hopes to welcome them back for another volunteer project in the near future!
