Seventh-grade students at Washington Middle School in Oconto Falls have participated in a number of community service projects as part of their civics class.

Students are learning that part of being good citizens is volunteering and helping to make their community a better place. To reinforce this concept, students undertook a variety of community service projects that each class chose. Projects included working on the landscaping around the school, cleaning up a community nature trail, and helping elderly community members with fall yard cleanup.

Students enjoyed being out in the community helping others.
