Reflection on 10th Grade Service Day

For service day, the 10th grade went to staten island. I enjoyed the ferry ride there and the bonding that I did with my grade. The time spent on the bus ride was a nice way to get to know my classmates that I might not otherwise spend time with. When we arrived, however, we were given a powerpoint presentation, which I was hoping would inform me about Staten island, but instead it gave us little information on staten island, the park, and the what/who we would be helping. I found it hard to give back to a community that I did not know much about or understand how my work was helping them. I wish I could have gotten more out of this experience.
