What is Raising the Barre?

Raising the Barre is our community outreach program! It provides a great opportunity for students in grades 6-12 to help others while having fun, engaging in new experiences, and gaining valuable leadership skills. In addition, participating in Raising the Barre can help fulfill school community service requirements, and volunteer hours can be documented for college applications. 


Raising the Barre meets approximately once per month, usually on Saturdays, with additional group meetings scheduled as needed. Students work together to plan and participate in various community service projects throughout the year! Students play an active role in each step of their projects, gaining leadership skills as they plan, connect with organizations, and complete their service projects.

 

Previous projects include: 

  • Hosting a Dance-a-Thon, raising over $1000 for PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center
