Seasons of Service

Boston students and teachers recognize there is a time to learn and a time to serve.
What better way to beat the Holiday Gimmees and observe Red Letter Days than to
practice good deeds? Classroom tested and real world based, these special ways to
observe special days empower students to become community problem solvers.
Students share academic skills and technical competencies in priority areas of
Citizenship, Education, Environment, Human Needs & Public Safety.
Here's a way to discover the true meaning of holidays and heroes.
Please join us in celebrating these Seasons of Service.

About the Project Archives: The project was active between 2002 and 2007, with teacher-designed projects implemented and published on the website. This site now presents the archives from this project. While many of the teachers and partners may have retired or moved to other schools and projects, the materials published here continue to be valuable to readers, with both the concepts and the projects themselves continuing to be widely read.
