May 2017 Newsletter

The school year is coming to a close, and it’s hard to believe that Serve-A-Thon was almost one month ago! We wanted to spend some time to reflect on how much the event impacted our students.

#FirewallServes: Serve-A-Thon Recap

Our 4th Annual Serve-A-Thon was a great success! Firewall students took Broward by storm, serving at 6 project sites across the county. Read what our students have to say about giving back after Serve-A-Thon 2017!

What is one positive thing you will remember from Serve-A-Thon?

I will remember how the people we served left with smiles and how every time we gave them food or clothing, they were very thankful.’ – Demila, Grade 6, Pompano Beach


How has Serve-A-Thon changed the way you think about giving back and community service?’

‘Serving makes me feel fortunate and helps me understand that I should be grateful for what I have.’ – Kim Torres, Grade 7, Indian Ridge Middle                         


Now that Serve-A-Thon is over, what are some ways you will continue to serve?

‘I want to help people and start to do community service whenever I can.’ – Rashidah, Grade 6, Bair
