In the spring of 2016, the GVHS SHS Club held a very successful drive for basic supplies, including: backpacks, binders, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, scissors, pencils, markers, pencil sharpeners, pens, highlighters, markers, report covers, etc. These supplies were delivered to the James G. Blaine (K-8) School and South Philadelphia High School.
In October, a group of 19 Students Helping Students members from Great Valley High School volunteered their time to help students at the Overbrook Educational Center. While there, they helped the 8th graders revise essays that were necessary to apply to high school. In addition to this, they held discussions with the 7th graders during which they talked about high school activities, classes, and answered any questions the students had for them. The high school students enjoyed meeting with the Overbrook students, and look forward to another visit!
On December 14th, the Great Valley High School Students Helping Students club members volunteered at the Edward T. Steel (K-8) School in Philadelphia. While there, they helped out in the classroom, at recess, with lunch, and also helped set up for a holiday party. The GVHS SHS club also delivered Pre-Algebra textbooks that had been donated by Great Valley High School.
