What is Service Week at New Vista?

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


​Students at New Vista spend a week every Spring out in the community or in the school giving their time and talents to improve the world around them. 
​We read, we restore, we paint, we rebuild trails, we reforest, we learn about ourselves and how we can be of service to our community​.​​

Service Week 2018

 



Dear Ms Vanessa Dimiziani Cascio, ..."I just wanted to thank you and Liv from the bottom of my heart for doing this project. Our daughter absolutely cherishes the book Liv made for her and has shared it with everyone who she comes in contact with! She has kept it in a special place and reads it everyday-she is so proud!  I know she will keep it as a prized possession for her life! Thank you for taking time to engage your students in such a meaningful and relationship-centered project. It really has meant so much to our daughter and to us to have high schoolers like your students as mentors..." Thank you!!  Liv Murray, class of 2019, mentors a kindergartener during Service Week, 2018
