Reed Middle School Teaches Good Citizenship

Filed under: Schools |

Coming together to clean up the community, Reed Middle School partnered with Keep Duncanville Beautiful to host the Duncanville Park Cleanup Day on October 1. Not only an environmentally-conscious initiative, this volunteer opportunity celebrated the school’s citizenship theme for the first six-week grading period.

“We wanted to do something to express our gratitude to the city of Duncanville,” explained Reed counselor Terrence Chase. “Our hope is that students, staff, and parents all see that we are one community.”

Sacrificing their free time for the greater good, eighty-three students, eleven teachers, and several community members picked up trash at both Armstrong and Lakeside parks.

After completing their civic duty, participants came together for an appreciation lunch.

“Our students exceeded far beyond any expectations we had,” commented Chase. “They made Reed and Duncanville proud.”

The first project of its kind for Reed Middle School, Chase hopes it won’t be the last.“I want to continue our relationship with Keep Duncanville Beautiful and do more for the community. I also want our students to see the importance of giving back.”
