Sixth grader, Vishal, helps out in the craft booth of the Children’s Area at the Common Ground Fair

This year Class 6-7 volunteered at the Common Ground Fair. It was the first time they were old enough for this responsibility. One group volunteered in the children’s area, painting faces and helping children make arts and crafts. Another group helped set tables and prepare food in the Common Kitchen which feeds the fair’s volunteers. I was proud of the students; they worked willingly and hard, and were invariably pleasant and polite.
