We need Springhouse because it supports and cultivates learner voice. Earlier this month, a learner-organized fundraiser event was held at the school. More than eighty people came and enjoyed a gratitude walk with reflection and story, an amazing Indian dinner, and songs shared by Springhouse teens. Through this well-planned and meaningful time together in community, the teens raised over $2,000!
The learner voice continues to strengthen and grow as teens have come together to change up the way we, as a school, make our annual ask through a mailing. Several teens summoned their creativity and courage to reimagine this ask of financial support and also share more personally why they are at Springhouse Community School.
These NEW newsletters have been mailed and all of us at Springhouse are excited to spread the word about “The Annual Ask” and #GivingTuesdayforTeens! Stay tuned for more information coming your way. Meanwhile, check out the Springhouse learner stories HERE.
