So a couple days ago was Service Palooza! For those of you who don’t know what Service Palooza is, it is the day that my entire school goes out and does service projects for the community. Like my team walked around the local college and picked up trash on campus. It was super fun! This may not sound like a lot of fun but digging water bottle caps out of the ground and searching the ground for leftover beads (most likely from a summer camp) is actually really fun! The other grades and teams did different projects, like painting the elementary school’s playground, cleaning buses or even planting new plants in front of the school.
This is one of my favorite days all year besides the first, last day and field day. I mean what’s better than helping out the people in your community and making the town look nicer for all of us?! Plus the weather was perfect. Who could ask for more than that?!One of the best parts though…when we stopped for lunch, I had a cannoli! #YUM! 😀 After lunch we were divided up into teams of four and we had a competition to see who could pick up the most trash. My team won!
We headed back to the school and because it wasn’t time to go home quite yet, we watched a movie afterwards. Then when the movie was over we went outside and made a video for the 4th graders coming to the school next year to help make them feel more comfortable. Then we got popsicles, which were also very yummy! 😀
