6th Grade: So Others Might Eat (Some)
Enrichment & Access
6th grade students at Maret have established a partnership with students from the Washington Middle School for Girls, a Catholic girls school in Washington, DC established to provide a caring and safe environment for young girls who are living in underserved neighborhoods. Once a week the students come together to serve at So Others Might Eat (SOME), an organization dedicated to meeting the immediate needs of DC’s poor and homeless with food, clothing and health care. In addition to the service and collaboration amongst the students, the teachers from Maret and Washington Middle School for Girls have also established a relationship based on collaboration. Together the teachers have developed a joint curriculum that revolves around their students’ service learning projects, providing an opportunity for the teachers and students to both enjoy the benefits of working with different people from within their community.
