Favorite aspect of your school: My favorite aspect of North is a program I have been involved in since my freshman year. This program is called Communities. Communities is a project-based learning class where I we use our 21st century skills to try and make a difference in our community on a local, national, and global level. Some of my favorite memories that I have had in high school have been because of this program.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Recently, I took part in a 9/11 service day which was through Communities. This day revolved around the main idea of turning a day of tragedy into a day of good. Me and 60 other of my classmates went out into the community and helped out with various things. My group in particular went to a low income housing authority and we pulled weeds, planted flowers, and trimmed overgrown bushes.
