How It All Began:
Community Service projects have been a part of HAAS since the school started in XXXX. Originally the program was a weeklong event that occurred twice a year. During that week consecutive full days were devoted to various community projects. This bi-yearly event was a positive experience for students, however the program was changed in 2014 to a more frequent schedule - every other Friday for a 4 hour period. This has helped HAAS develop a consistent positive presence in the community and has enabled students and teachers to foster long-term relationships with organizations or causes that are relevant to their lives and the lives of their families. Community service has evolved from an event that took place twice a year to a regular part of HAAS school life.
Community Service embraces a whole-child approach to learning and instills social responsibility and stewardship.
