Students at Center Moriches Middle School displayed the service projects they worked on this year at the Community Project Showcase on March 31. As part of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, eighth grade students complete a research and service project to mark the completion of their time at Center Moriches Middle School. The project encourages students to explore their responsibilities to implement service as action in the community.
Eighth graders chose their own project to complete. They ranged from community clean-up projects to raising money for nonprofits. Students spent time volunteering, collecting donations, raising funds and creating things. Through service-learning, they were given the opportunity to realize and address needs in their own community.
