COMMUNITY SERVICE

LEARN... BELIEVE... DREAM... DARE
Key Club has been busy the past few weeks!

Throughout February, Key Club collected books for Hamilton K-8 Elementary School and 11 Key Club members delivered them on Friday, March 2nd to celebrate Read Across America with them.  Our students picked out some of their childhood favorites and were amazing at reading to the various age groups that were excitedly gathered around.  Hamilton’s school principal also joined in on the fun and closed the adventure with reading a book to our students!
