On Friday, October 27, the students from Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School in Mound will be raking lawns of seniors and others in the community who need assistance. Students enjoy this opportunity to help those in need. It is a tangible way for the children to live out the mission of the school.
Residents who receive this service are nominated by church, school, and community members. Usually they are seniors, or families who have experienced illness, loss, or other hardships. A final selection is made by the Rake-A-Thon committee chairs. The school hopes to serve approximately 15 homes in 2017. The students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade rake yards, while the pre-kindergarten students spruce up the area around the school and church.
Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School has a long tradition of service to the community. OLL’s focus on service learning allows students to have leadership roles in thoughtfully organized experiences that meet real needs in the community. The service is integrated into the students’ academic studies with structured time to research, reflect, discuss and connect their experiences to their learning and their world view. Students learn that a commitment to their faith involves not only service, but also a call to know and understand the communities benefiting from their service. Through these experiences of service to others, students begin to understand the need for compassion and justice in today’s world.
