In Our Community
Desert Meadows students participate in a number of activities to directly serve their community. These include:
Phoenix Children’s Hospital
Members of Desert Meadows’ National Junior Honor Society sponsored a toy drive to benefit PCH. They collected over 150 toys to share with children undergoing treatment at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Arizona Humane Society
Mr. Ren Fahey’s 5th graders auctioned off 17 decorated cakes to benefit the Arizona Humane Society this week as part of the class’s fall community service project. Basha’s master cake decorator visited the Desert Meadows students and demonstrated her cake decorating skills. The Halloween-themed cakes were then auctioned off with the bidding starting at $10. Their goal was to raise at least $200, but they actually raised $462! The highest bid for one cake was $60. Two $50 bids were also placed. The class presented a check to the Humane Society along with student-created posters promoting the adoption of animals.
