ALL students welcome. Snacks provided!
The Alternative Spring break will travel Saturday, March 11th through Thursday, March 16th. Activities will include service projects such as urban gardening, support of homeless populations, and outreach to seniors, and visits to organizations working with vulnerable populations in our nation's capitol.
