Freshmen Give Back

FWCD’s 83 freshman took part in Ninth-Grade Service Morning on Friday, September 15. Groups of students and advisers lent their hands to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, Como Community Center, Oakmont Elementary School, Tarrant Area Food Bank, The Vantage at Cityview, FWCD Kindergarten, and to FWCD’s adopted section of the Trinity River (River Park trailhead) for the Trinity Trash Bash (a day early). There was also a group that took part in FWCD campus beautification, working alongside Clovis Murphree and Dewayne Dodgin. View a slide show here.
 
Community service is a cornerstone of an FWCD education. Students begin to understand the importance of giving back as kindergarteners and are provided age-appropriate service opportunities as they progress through each division. The goal is that by the time students are in Upper School, community service is a way of life that carries over into their college and professional lives as they become engaged citizens in their own communities.
