Seniors engaging in community service activities

Upper School Participates in Day of Caring

During Thursday’s annual Day of Caring in the Upper School, 9th and 10th graders heard from Tina Meier, Founder and CEO of the Megan Meier Foundation on anti-bullying (with a social media focus), community building and what it means to be an upstander. Juniors spent the day at Camp Wyman, participating in team-building activities. Seniors engaged in community service activities to deepen their understanding of the experience of our neighbors throughout the St. Louis community. A group of MICDS seniors worked with students at Dewey International Studies School to clean up the Dewey garden to get it ready for Fall planting. In addition, a small group of seniors attended the Project 99 Leadership Conference, which addresses the effects of social media on leadership.
