Stanwood teens Make a Difference

Students in Val Schroeder’s senior English classes at Stanwood High School sponsored Make A Difference Day projects for the Oct. 22 national day of service.

More than 90 teens worked on 36 projects, which included doing chores for senior citizens, teaching young children about leadership, picking up litter, visiting children in hospitals, and various drives and fundraisers for homeless shelters, food banks, and animal and wildlife care centers, among other projects.

Many students plan to continue helping with these causes to complete community service hour requirements for their “Contemporary World Problems” and civics courses during the school year.

ACES student recognized

The South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary Club named ACES High School’s Micah Neptune as a Student of the Month for October.

Neptune enjoys drawing and abstract art, volunteers to help the custodians at Weston, and enjoys glass and woodworking projects. He looks forward to a college-level Advanced Placement government class next semester and plans to attend Everett Community College.
