In addition to the lunchtime, age-leveled service groups, many grades have their own annual service projects.
Developmental Kindergarten, Kindergarten and 1st Grade classes serve My Friend's Place, a drop-in center in Hollywood that provides services for homeless teens, by making and packing lunches for the teens.
Second Grade organizes a gently used book drive with donated books going to a non-profit for redistribution to underserved communities or schools.
Fourth Grade, with help from Seedlings, Buds and Roots & Shoots, as well as 6th Grade and many parent volunteers, bakes hundreds of loaves of pumpkin bread to be distributed by St. Joseph Center to its clients during the Thanksgiving season.
The 6th Grade classes make numerous visits to St. Joseph Center, where they help serve clients in the food pantry and the Bread and Roses Café. They partner with a local community school to build bicycles that are donated to St. Joseph Center as well.
Our entire Curtis community (faculty, staff, parents/guardians, and students) joins in our own annual Curtis Cares Day of Service, undertaking projects that benefit a number of local non-profit organizations as well as our own school.
