Service Learning


Mission Elementary's Service Learning Program is a component of our curriculum that is being developed and enhanced each year. Our children look forward to serving their community and participating in the following programs during the course of the year:
  • Advent/Lenten Collection - During the Advent and Lenten Seasons, the students and staff at Mission Elementary participate in different activities. An advent wreath and the Jessie Tree are part of our morning announcements and teachers continue with lessons regarding the advent seasons in the classroom. During Lent the Stations of the Cross are reflected upon each day and classes go to the Mission Garden to pray the Stations of the Cross.
  • Christmas/Thanksgiving Food Drive - In partnership with our Christian Service Center, the students, faculty, and staff collect can and dry goods, along with other items such as toothbrushes and toothpaste, for the 150 families that are served with food baskets during both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  • Saying the Rosary Daily During October
  • Bless The World
  • Koins for Kids
  • Mission Day
