Upcoming Events

Connection Week – Community Service Activity

The Connection Week community service project is scheduled for Wednesday, August 29, from 12:45-3:00 p.m. Students will be divided into groups and helping with landscaping or sorting projects at one of two Miracle Hill locations. We encourage students to bring gloves and long pants and long sleeves to change into in case they will be working around brush. If you would be willing to send shovels, hand trowels, pruners, hedge sheers, loppers, garden rakes, and leaf rakes, that would help those students accomplish the landscaping projects at Miracle Hill. Please be sure to label tools.
