W springfield students at the GSA

Students from West Springfield High visited the General Services Administration’s information technology office in Washington, D.C., for a business tour and job shadowing experience. After touring the recently-renovated building, students heard from GSA volunteers, who offered their time to mentor students and talk about their careers.  This work-based, learning field trip reinforced what students are learning in their information technology and computer science classes. Read the full story here

A grant from the Foundation to Herndon Middle School is bringing adult mentors to work with the students on service learning projects in their community. Students worked with mentors to decorate pumpkins that were then donated to an elementary school as a way to show their caring and compassion for the community. #SOARFCPS
