Every Parkview student spends day serving others in Springfield



Parkview High School students all participated in a special day of service on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

The Sixth Annual Parkview Cares Day had all students learning off of campus, doing community service projects in parks, local non-profits and more.

"Our purpose is to teach about service learning and helping others and to show our kids that it's a big world out there, and there's a lot of people that need a lot of help," said Jason Michel, Parkview High School assistant principal. "And as part of our leadership program at school, we teach you a lot about compassion and helping others."

In addition to thousands of volunteer hours given today by Parkview students, seniors completed a career day, where they participated in jobshadowing activities in chosen industry across Springfield.
