A Day of Both Service and Physical Activity!

A Day of Both Service and Physical Activity!

Algonquin Middle School was full of activity as the 6th and 7th graders participated in annual traditions during the final week of school. 

Since the tradition began back in 2013, all 7th graders at Algonquin Middle School have been giving back to their community through a Service Learning Day. 

This year the Service Learning Day included such projects as participating in a 5K to support the Des Plaines Food Pantry and making fleece blankets for children as part of the Linus Project. 

Other service activities included painting inspirational quotes on rocks and distributing them to neighbors, writing encouraging letters to military troops and spending time cleaning up and giving back to the Des Plaines community by planting flowers and cleaning up yards. 

A special thank you to the District 62 Education Foundation for their support of the school's Service Learning Day. 

That same day, Algonquin 6th graders had some fun in the sun participating in their annual field day events. 

To celebrate the end of their first year at AMS, the 6th graders spent time playing indoor and outdoor games and watching movies with their classmates and teachers.

AMS wishes all of the 6th and 7th graders a great summer and a successful transition to the 2024-2025 school year!
