Giving Tuesday: A Global Initiative That Celebrates Philanthropy
On this day and every day, we are proud to share with you some of the ways Sea Crest School gives back. Throughout the year, our teachers inspire and empower our learners to act with compassion by incorporating hands-on service projects into their curricula. A few highlights include:
Currently, we are partnering with local community organization ALAS (Ayudando Latinos a Soñar) to sponsor their "One Warm Blanket" drive. We encourage every student and faculty member to donate one new fleece blanket to support community farmworkers and their families. Blankets will be collected in the lobby from 11/29-12/10.
Each major holiday, the students make cards for our neighbors at the Senior Coastsiders and are included in their Meals on Wheels delivery for that holiday.
Once a month, seventh and eighth-grade students are learning the value of community service by volunteering at Senior Coastsiders' Table of Plenty and serving a warm, healthy meal to members of our Coastside community.
Each fall, our entire school community engages in a back-to-school food drive to support Coastside Hope, as part of our Social-Emotional Learning theme, Building Community.
Every year, sixth-grade students lead a school-wide hygiene drive for Coastside Hope, as part of the Health and Wellness curriculum.
The Marine and Coastal Science program has partnered with the Pacific Beach Coalition and the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Ocean Guardian program, taking part in coastal habitat restoration, beach and wetland cleanup, and local environmental research.
In June, proceeds from the annual Third Grade Entrepreneurship Fair (Economics Unit) support the Coastside Land Trust for Wavecrest habitat restoration and water quality monitoring work, and proceeds from the annual First Grade Farmers’ Market go to local charities such as Second Harvest and The HEAL Project.
