Service Learning, Community Partnerships, and Global Citizenship
Dear Echo Horizon School Community,
In response to the "stay at home" order in the Spring of 2020 and the ongoing pandemic, Echo Horizon continues to communicate with our community partners and stay connected during this challenging time. While we are unable to publish active project dates for 2020–2021, we will continue to communicate with our partners and hope to find meaningful ways to connect our students and our learning with their endeavors during this time. When we are able to safely participate and host community events, we will publish updates in the Tuesday Bulletin!
If you are interested in community engagement opportunities for your family right now, click HERE for a list of organizations that have been accepting virtual support and volunteer services during the pandemic.

Through community partnerships and engagement opportunities, students, faculty, and families at Echo Horizon build relationships and deepen our understanding of self and others. Service-learning programs and projects build compassion, curiosity, and responsible and action-oriented citizens with a sense of purpose.
Our program will include:
- Ongoing and sustainable partnerships with organizations and communities locally, nationally, and globally
- Curriculum crafted to connect grade-level classroom goals with the mission and needs of our community partners
- Connection and collaboration with communities and organizations that represent cultures from around the world in the ALAS curriculum (Appreciation and Learning through Arts and Spanish) for all 3rd–6th graders.
At Echo Horizon, being kind and compassionate is not only what we do, it’s who we are.
