“We are in community each time we find a place where we belong and find we are needed.” –Peter F. Block

I helped out at back to school night here at Friends.  My job was to find the schedules for parents to follow as they went through the night.  I shared that job with two other friends from 9th grade.  It was fun meeting a lot of parents.  When parents passed through the halls in between classes, we had to help them find their way to many classrooms through out the school.  A lot of my friends also helped at back to school night which made it fun while helping the parents.

I was able to help the community in a way that I had not been able to before.  I helped those who we don’t see very often at friends, but still play a big role in this community.  I was able to take away a sense of a accomplishment by helping the parents.  We were able to help at one of the biggest events of the new school year.  With the year now closing down, I look back and remember how I helped get it started.

  1. Nick, I can tell you as a parent myself that it means so much to families when they are greeted and welcomed by students to an event at school. This is a great way to give back to the community. “Greeting and welcoming” is also a life-long skill that will stand you in good stead in the future! Thank you!
