At RBCS, we believe that all children should become responsible citizens exemplifying the values of respect and personal responsibility. Through our comprehensive Service Learning Curriculum in grades K-8, students discover much about themselves and their talents in the context of a community of people.
Children have ample opportunities to complete school-wide and classroom service learning activities. Additionally, students in the upper-grades also have individual internship experiences.
Dressed in our blue and tan uniforms, children are seen around town painting storm drains with the Clean Communities Council, delivering snacks at the Habitat for Humanity site, or making lunches and sharing conversations with the folks at the Senior Center.
We realize the risk we take by expecting young people to engage appropriately in the workplace. The value added to our instructional program is well-documented through our community partners' complimentary comments. They assure us our high expectations and trust in children are well-founded.
