Flagstaff Academy Dragons Care!
Community Service is a Core Virtue at Flagstaff Academy and part of our Dragon PRIDE Core Virtues. From our youngest students through middle schoolers, to our staff, Dragons Care about the community we live in! Some examples of community service in action at Flagstaff Academy include:
Monthly School-wide Dragon PRIDE Core Virtues Community Service Efforts
- September 2019: Perseverance
- From preschool to 8th grade, our students expressed gratitude for the Dragon PRIDE Core Virtue of Perseverance that is exhibited by our first responders. Students made thank you cards, baked cookies, decorated banners and fresh produce deliveries.
- October 2019: Respect
- For October's Dragon PRIDE Core Virtue Community Service Project, our community collected shoes for Soles4Souls, a Nashville, Tennessee-based non-profit dedicated to providing clothing and shoes to those in need.
Our other community service initiatives include:
- Preschool collected and donated new kids pajamas for the winter holidays
- Kindergarten embarked on a number of community service projects throughout the year:
