The 5th grade will take an end-of-the-year mission trip working with DOOR. They will complete daily service activities, volunteering in the community and also taking group mini field trips to include fun and educational activities. The evening will be spent reflecting on the day and making connections with the overall religious aspect of the experience. Overnights will be spent at the local church. This trip offers a time for students and adults to make lasting connections and for the students to grow and give back.
Student Leaders have the unique opportunity to gain experience in community involvement while working alongside Barry University, MCDS, MSPCS students and faculty.

A commitment to volunteer through May 2018, is expected.
