Our elementary school, 2nd Nature Academy, conducts a service learning project each month. This May (2012), the class coordinated a hot dog sale to benefit Heifer International. The students did it all: budget and price setting, a field trip to the store to cost compare and purchase supplies, food and handmade good preparation, and they provided excellent customer service. Their hard work really paid off... far more than they ever anticipated!
