At Sierra Canyon, our students embrace a set of core values that help them build strong minds and kind hearts.
Punctuating these values is the Week of Giving, a beautiful tradition when we dedicate a week to thinking about and doing for others. Our entire school participated in a drive for hygiene products and new socks for the residents of the Trebek Center in Northridge. Thanks to our generous community, the giving spirit of Sierra Canyon was evident on both campuses. This morning, the donated items filled the Hope of the Valley Mission truck.
Throughout the week, student leadership was at the forefront of this important initiative. Members of the Lower School Student Council and Upper School National Honor Society were in carpool lines encouraging the Sierra Canyon community to participate and collecting donations each day. The Sierra Canyon community also donated over 1,000 pairs of shoes to Shoes for Souls, a nonprofit organization run by Sarah S. '27. Sarah will distribute the donations to various shelters for unhoused children, women, and men. And in addition to all the donations, the Baking Club held a bake sale and raised nearly $500 dollars for the World Wildlife Fund.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Week of Giving! The generosity and support of our students and families are greatly appreciated. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'".
