Fridley Middle School 6th graders make scarves for those in need
Posted 12/21/2017 09:44AM

On December 15, nearly 60 Fridley Middle School 6th graders participated in a grade-wide community service project. The students each handmade one no-sew scarf to donate to St. Phillips Church in Fridley, which will be distributed to those in need during the holiday season.

“We just wanted to provide our students with an opportunity and space to do something nice for somebody else," said Joel Weingart, 6th grade math teacher. “It’s all about giving back.”

The lesson of “giving back” isn’t necessarily taught in a regular curriculum, but the addition of a community service project ties into the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. Part of the IB curriculum framework is to teach students to develop civic responsibility through kind acts and volunteering.

Weingart said it’s important for students to learn the satisfaction that can come from helping others.

“It’s been great to watch their faces while they work on this project. They’re communicating, collaborating and working together, all for the good of others,” Weingart said. “I think that’s pretty special.”
