Promising Practices

The Guffey community values service learning.   We believe that connecting the curriculum with community service enriches the education for students.  We are proud of our many service learning projects. 

We received two Promising Practice awards from the Character Education Partnership for service learning projects completed in the 2015-2016 school year.  

H.O.M.E. - Helping Others Means Everything
We had many families impacted by the flood that took place over the holiday break.  Students created activity books for children who lost items in the flood.  The books were filled with crossword puzzles and word searches (using vocabulary words), math flash cards and other activities.  Students also collected laundry detergent, fabric softener, pillows and other items to help the families impacted by the flooding.  

Toasty Toes  
We are proud to have a strong partnership with the assisted living facility Cori Manor.  Our students met with their Bunch family and made Christmas cards for the residents.  They also decorated a gift for the residents.  The gifts were given after students performed in the annual Cori Manor holiday concert.
