The IB MYP focus on community service and action is meant to encourage and enable students to:
- Generate creative new insights and develop deeper understandings of local and global issues
- Communicate effectively in a variety of situations
- Demonstrate responsible action through, or as a result of, learning
- Appreciate the process of learning in service to and for others and take pride in their accomplishments
At Pinckneyville, we want to expand classroom learning to the community and beyond. To do so, students are encouraged to identify areas where they can apply personal strengths to organizations or areas in need. Students should begin service and action hours and use the log in the front of the student agenda or personal log to LOG HOURS for the school year. (10+ hours by May 1) Be sure to keep proof of service with signatures in your agenda book. Teachers will verify hours at different points during the year!
