MLK Day of Service

Students Participate in MLK Day of Service Activities

As we continue our district wide year of service at Triton, and we approach our next National Day of Service, MLK Day, our students are involved in a variety of service projects to remember and serve.  Here’s what’s happening around the district:

Salisbury Elementary School is running a “Toiletry” drive and will be creating hygiene gift totes to donate to the Pettengill House.  Any donations from our greater community will be happily accepted at SES or at Central Office in the high school.

Pine Grove School is holding a “Book Drive” to collect new or gently loved books to create book totes which will be donated to local community partners to increase literacy and home libraries.  Community donations can be brought to PGS or to Central Office in the high school.

TMS student council is creating “Birthday Bags” full of decorations and party supplies to give to families at Pettengill House so that children there will feel extra special on their birthdays. The middle school drive for requested donations will run this week. Our middle school art classes, high school students with special needs and other student volunteers, as well as the Kid’s Club at NES are helping to decorate these special bags.

THS is taking on a large scale project based on financial literacy.  All math classes are focusing on different financial literacy topics and will be creating a public awareness financial literacy booklet from their studies. The booklet will then be published and distributed to our greater community.  We thank Salem Five and the Bureau for Consumer Protection for partnering on this project with us.

We are excited to share pictures in the coming weeks of these great projects!  Stay tuned!
