Turning Point School Blog
The Turning Point community celebrated another successful food drive to benefit S.A.V.E.S (Saint Augustine Volunteer Emergency Service) with a special all-school assembly. Students embraced the spirit of giving through song, dance, prose, and displays of student leadership. The items donated will help feed families in the Culver City area this holiday season.
Many thanks to our special guest from S.A.V.E.S., Priscilla Terry, for speaking with our students about the impact their donations will have on the greater community. And our sincere appreciation to our PA Community Service Co-Chairs, the Faculty Service Learning Committee, and our parent volunteers for organizing this important annual event. We are also grateful to our neighbors at Access Apartments and the Co-opportunity Market and Deli for partnering with us this year to collect items from their residents and patrons.
Thank you to all who donated and thoughtfully participated. Service learning opportunities are an ongoing and important part of the Turning Point culture, and are designed to deepen connections for our students with the school’s curriculum and core values.
