Beyond the Bell

Saturday, March 9, 2019

 

High school students enrolled in Beyond the Bell programs in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) took part in the Take Action Campaign on Saturday, March 9, 2019 to provide community service for three organizations in Los Angeles.

 

Students in the San Fernando Valley participated in Arbor Day LA, an organized event to increase greenery in the valley area. LAUSD students were joined by Councilwoman Nury Martinez and several community groups, including California Fire, City Plants, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, LA Sanitation, LA Conversation Corps, and Tree People, among others.

 

Take Action Campaign students from the southern region of the district traveled to the Santa Monica Pier and joined the Heal the Bay organization to help clean our beaches and restore the puppet theater used to educate elementary age students.  Meanwhile, high school students from the central region worked at a local food bank and filled almost 5,000 food packages that will be delivered to senior citizens throughout Los Angeles.

 

Over 200 LAUSD high school students participated in this day of service, directly giving back to their local communities. Planting trees, cleaning our beaches, and taking a role in feeding our senior citizens…not bad for a day’s work!
