BUILD • BEAUTIFY • SERVE
At MG21, we call service learning “Build, Beautify and Serve” (BBS). BBS projects are projects designed to leverage the unique talents and interests of our students in order to make MG21, and the surrounding community, a better place. As students and staff collaborate for our BBS projects we consider these questions:
Can you build something to improve the school or surrounding area?
Can you use your artistic talents to make our school or community look or sound more beautiful?
Can you use your knowledge, skills, or work ethic to help others through service?
Can you collaborate with others to make your ideas happen?
