Students and staff from several schools in Bend-La Pine Schools are participating in activities related to Good Neighbor Day on Sept. 28, a national holiday that encourages people to be kind and help neighbors and neighborhoods.
Students at four local schools will host clean-up efforts in the neighborhood surrounding their schools.
“Our schools are integral parts of their neighborhoods. Good Neighbor Day is a great opportunity for our students and staff to demonstrate what it means to be a good neighbor,” said Superintendent Shay Mikalson. “From neighborhood clean-up efforts to volunteering for local charities, our students are learning what it means to be good neighbors and citizens.”
