March 18 was World Changer Day at Lancaster Mennonite School! Students in every grade, from kindergarten to twelfth, participated in an act of service for our community. Serving others is one of the ways we express our core values of seeking Jesus wholeheartedly and living compassionately.
The students completed various service projects throughout the community and on campus that day:
- Kindergarten-2nd grade at New Danville: Decorated bags for Meals on Wheels in classroom
- Kindergarten-2nd grade at Locust Grove: Painted the Easter story on bags for a local food pantry in classroom
- 3-5 grades All Campuses: Hunger Research Expo at Lancaster Campus
- 6th all campuses: Worked with Troy Hurst, LM System Plant Manager, doing clean-up at Lancaster Campus
- 7-8 grades Locust Grove: Mennonite Central Committee Material Resource Center
- 7th grade LMMS: Woodcrest Camp
- 8th grade LMMS: Blessings of Hope Food Bank
- Freshmen: Wrote notes of encouragement to 8th graders at Locust Grove and Lancaster campuses.
