Growing with Hope
At Lindbergh High School, students enhance their learning gained in classes during the school day by sharing their gifts and talents in the greater community. Students realized that they could learn quite a bit more than just basic sewing and cooking in their (FACS) Family and Consumer Science Classes, if they shared their talents in the community. In correlation with their basic sewing unit, students created “tabbies” for the NICU which are small blankets with varied texture which makes it helpful for sensory development in babies. Students in the Lindbergh Interact Club (a buddy partnership club with Crestwood-Sunset Hills Rotary International Club) decided to take this seed of service to full bloom. Interactive members attended a volunteer training day at St. John’s Hospital. They learn how to be helpful to patients and their families and create a service partnership with the hospital for neonatal families yearlong providing monthly dinners for parents, afternoons of fun for siblings and attractively decorated hospital rooms.
