At Lausanne, students build character through service to others from the time they enter Pre-Kindergarten until graduation and are encouraged to go out in the community and make a difference.
As a part of their community involvement, Lausanne eighth-graders received a visit from their Promise Academy friends during a day filled with laughter, learning and gift giving.
Each year, Lausanne eighth-graders partner with the Promise Academy charter school to help younger children with their reading skills and the importance of education. Throughout the school year, the Lausanne students work on building relationships with their friends by visiting the Promise Academy and bringing them to Lausanne to host fun events.
During the Lausanne campus visit, students caught a glimpse of the middle musical “The Little Mermaid” together in EPAC, played in the Outdoor Learning Center and read books to each other. The eighth graders gave hand-made scarfs to their Promise friends and sent them home with wrapped gifts to open later.
“While we understand the curriculum is important for our students, the Promise Academy experience allows our children to give back and learn more than they ever could from facts and figures,” eighth-grade teach Robin Trusty said. “The relationships built by the eighth grade Lausanne and Promise Academy kindergarten students is the perfect partnership.”
