Serve Like A Jedi 2015

This year’s Serve Like A Jedi campaign was a success! Dozens of Rogues participated and encouraged their students to serve by helping those in need. Whether it was volunteering their time, money, or collecting goods, all participants walked away with a greater understanding of community service and the need to help others. Learn how some of the Rogues participated in Serve Like A Jedi 2015!

Danielle Lopez, Rogue 50

Danielle's school, Davis Magnet, did a project called Earn to Give. Students earned over $750 to donate to the relief efforts in Nepal. Students earned the money by doing extra chores, selling candy, lemonade stands, and two students had a rock concert on their front lawn! Many families were also involved, helping brainstorm ways to earn money. One family decided that their grandpa needed help. They told me that he has not been able to clean his shower for many years. The little girl said it looked like a "grime" scene. So, these kids really gave twice.

Dennis Prestwood, Rogue 96

Dennis began his Serve Like A Jedi campaign by speaking with his 5th grade students, taking their numerous suggestions on how they could serve others. They decided on starting with a food drive. Their school has a program that feeds local families in need, so all food raised was donated within their community. The students also wanted to go to primary classes to help the school's teachers. The ESE department, which deals with severe ESE/physical disabilities, jumped on the offer and took half of his twenty students. The other half was split between K - 2.

The food drive ended on Star Wars day, the same day students were mentoring. On Revenge of the Fifth, the students came together and reflected over snacks, and kid friendly episodes of Clone Wars and Rebels. Dennis also brought in a friend dressed as Anakin Skywalker, who handed out awards to the excited students.

Dennis' school was supportive by announcing the food drive daily on the morning announcements and by welcoming them in classrooms. With growing interest from colleagues, Dennis is expecting next year's event to be even bigger!
