Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) is a month away! And man, I am excited! Why am I excited? Because the Mifflin Middle School and Mifflin High School teams will be coming together to do various beautification projects here at Mifflin MS. We’re going to paint murals that students have designed, paint inspirational quotes on the walls, and plant a garden! This past Thursday, students here at MMS were able to plant seeds for various fruits and vegetables that are going to be in the garden. It was a great activity for students to see where plants come from– “Wait, this is going to be a watermelon?”– as well as a fun way to engage our afterschool students. We have the seeds growing in our City Year space and second year corps member Edward Plumb will be working with a group of students to monitor their growth. Overall it was a great kick off to GYSD!
