    PALS Mission Statement

    “To encourage participation for all students in community service to enrich their education and development, and foster caring, impressionable interpersonal relationships among adults and middle school students. Through reflective and responsive community service learning activities and guidance of the Illinois state social emotional learning standards, students will gain social and self-awareness, improve interpersonal skills, and encourage self-management in order to become responsible, decision making citizens

    Potential Areas of Service Learning Interest and Examples:

    • Poverty – placemats for soup kitchens
    • Peers – reading activities with elementary students
    • Seniors – Choir, Orchestra and Band Concerts
    • End of Life Care – cards for hospice patients
    • Environment – clean up local nature preserves
    • World – letters to soldiers

    Station Expectations:

    The PALS program is designed to enhance students’ social-emotional learning through hand-on, community service projects. All Station students will participate in at least one service learning activity during the school year with their Colt Time advisory.
