At Durham Academy Middle School every advisory is required to participate in two community service activities per school year. Each advisory either stays on campus or goes off to better the community.
Earlier this school year, my advisory visited the Ronald McDonald House and made luminaries. The second time around, we did something a little different. We stayed on campus and helped work on the improvement of our environment. The girls planted flowers and the boys worked with the maintenance crew to mulch.
I wasn’t very excited about the idea of planting flowers at first because I thought it would be boring. Although, once we were done, I realized how much more colorful and vibrant the campus was with the new begonias we planted. I also noticed how much neater and fresh my surroundings looked with new mulch.
Overall, I am glad that I got to be part of the community service experience.
