Friendswood Independent School District's (FISD) second annual Day of Service took place on Monday, April 10, and it was a resounding success. The event brought together students, teachers, and staff to serve the community in various ways, such as park cleanups, performing at retirement homes, delivering goodies to first responders, and serving at food banks.
The Day of Service was a great opportunity for Friendswood ISD to give back to the community that has supported them throughout the years. Students and staff members from all campuses participated in the event, making it a district-wide initiative.
"We are so proud of the hard work and dedication shown by our students and staff during this day," Superintendent of FISD Thad Roher said. "Their efforts demonstrate the importance of serving others and making a positive impact in the community which is goal one of our strategic."
Some of the highlights of the Day of Service included park cleanups in Stevenson Park, where students and staff worked tirelessly to clear debris and litter from the area. At Morada, students entertained residents with music and other performances, bringing smiles to their faces. Meanwhile, first responders received thank-you packages with goodies and notes of appreciation, and food banks received volunteers who helped organize donated items and load up vehicles with groceries.
The FISD community is looking forward to continuing this tradition in the years to come. The Day of Service provided a meaningful way for students and staff to make a difference in the community while building relationships with those around them.
