- The Aspen Difference
8th Grade Kicks Off Service Learning Projects for 2021-2022
During the first week of school, with apple tree branches filled with apples, 8th graders set to work harvesting the apples.
Then, the class donated the majority of our apple harvest to a local food bank in Littleton serving 350 individuals in our community weekly. The fresh fruit was greatly appreciated.
The food bank is run by the Life Center in Littleton. Although faith-based, they serve any individual needing assistance.
Service learning -- and servant leadership -- is one of the essential aspects of leadership at Aspen Academy, and an important value: “Do Good.” Each year, Aspen students complete a combined 7,000 hours dedicated to serving others.
