We at the Episcopal Day School believe that Student Leadership and Service is a crucial part of the educational experience for children. We are now laying the groundwork to put forth a program that will give our students more opportunities to be leaders and to participate in programs that will positively impact our campus, community and planet.
Nice Months of Smiles
Community Service Project
At the Episcopal Day School our students and families are encouraged to participate in our effective community service project, Nine Months of Smiles. This program was created and designed by our Administration, Church of the Advent and teachers to give every child in our school the opportunity to make a real difference in our community. Through this program students learn how to work towards a common goal and help others. Nice Months of Smiles is a yearlong project and it enables each grade level to champion a month long community service project.
Our intention is to help as many non-profit organizations here in Brownsville, we work closely with the following organizations: Brownsville Animal Regulation & Care Center, Skinner Elementary, The Ozanam Center, Good Neighbor Settlement House, Plastic Oceans, Tip of Texas Family Outreach, Brownsville Literacy Center, Cameron County Children’s Advocacy Centers.
In keeping with the mission of The Episcopal Day School, the Student Ambassadors program provides students in grades 4 - 6 with opportunities to enhance the educational experience provided by the school. The Episcopal Day School Student Ambassadors foster school spirit, encourage student involvement in school activities, and serve as liaisons between the school and the global community.
