As an Episcopal school, we hold daily chapel services for all students, K5 to 8th grade. Middle school students are given an opportunity to serve on the Student Vestry. Half of our middle school students choose to belong to Student Vestry, volunteering their time and talents to share their faith with others. They are instrumental in planning chapel services for the week, taking time out of lunch and before school to meet. They are involved in sharing the word of God, strengthening their faith, moral values and beliefs, and gaining confidence in sharing their faith with others. Members also help choose music for chapel services and assist during services. They are key components in keeping chapel engaging and relevant for our students. Through their service, they learn important skills including leadership, public speaking, confidence, and planning presentations.
