Each year our school participates in Operation G.O.O.D. (Giving of Ourselves Day). It is Heritage Christian School’s opportunity to send students out into the community to serve others. HCS students collect sponsorships in the form of donations for this service from the community to support Heritage.
On Friday, May 7 our students participated in the service portion of Operation G.O.O.D. Our students split up and spent the morning working with the city to mulch the trees at Penn Meadows Park, cleaned up tree limbs and brush from the derecho at Cornerstone Park, and picked up trash at Beaver Kreek Park, along Dubuque Street and in the field around our property. Our younger students also drew and wrote words of encouragement with sidewalk chalk at the park and in the surrounding neighborhoods.
In the afternoon we had an all-school celebration with a pizza picnic lunch, a bounce house and games. It was a beautiful day to enjoy God’s creation, serve our community, and celebrate as a school!
