Roots and Shoots

The Roots and Shoots program is about making positive change happen – for our people, for animals and for the environment – to create a better world. Through service projects, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference in their world.

This quarter Roots & Shoots will be working on a Bus Raid project which will provide up to 100 laborers with a treat bag. Students will be collecting items needed for the bus raid, raising money to buy supplies, publicizing to bring awareness for the project, and finally, assembling and handing out the treat bags. The Bus Raid will be held on the final day of the ASRP, and it will be an evening event.

Parent volunteers are ALWAYS welcome at Roots & Shoots. This is a very fun and rewarding activity, but it also requires a lot of supervision and support to make it successful.
