In one classroom, students wiped down tables and mopped floors to a shine. In another, a group replaced ceiling tiles. Outside, groups of students weeded flower beds and cleaned up grassy areas.
More than 200 Bonanza Junior/Senior High School students spent a morning last week brightening their campus during the school’s annual Give Back Day. The event is a way for students and staff to take action to make their school and community a better place to live. In the past, students have cleaned up the community park and planted trees.
“Give Back Day is an important part of our culture and climate at school,” said Bonanza Junior/Senior High School Principal Jordan Osborn. “School and community beautification and improvement is all of our jobs. I want our students to have a servant leadership mindset when they leave Bonanza so they can go out into the world and make it a better place for all.”
As their classmates worked around the school, Bonanza FFA students prepared lunch, grilling burgers on the school’s over-sized barbecue.
Bonanza sophomore Jadyn Maddock helped clean classrooms. “It’s a way to give back to our school and help the staff who do so much for us,” she said.
