The Derby Team (D Team) is a collaborative effort between Derby Academy Administration and the Parent’s Association to increase involvement in community service among the student body.
The first D Team upper school event at Father Bill’s, a homeless shelter in Quincy servicing both men and women, is fast approaching! During this visit the students will prepare and serve dinner to the residents of the shelter. Student volunteers who are not able to attend the visit are needed to bake dessert which will be served with the meal. This is a unique opportunity to have direct contact with the residents and hopefully will have a lasting impact on both the providers and recipients of the service.
The first two event dates at Father Bill’s are:
Friday, October 7, 2016
Friday, November 4, 2016
Seventh and eighth grade parents, please look for the forthcoming email(s) with information and a link to sign up for this event. Dates fill up quickly so don’t hesitate if your child is interested in participating. Please contact Lara Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-618-8597 with any questions.
