Character Patrol: Summit Ridge Academy Students

December 22, 2012

On December 20, students from Summit Ridge Academy (SRA) “Stuffed the Bus.” Youth and staff brought food, gifts, clothes and toys to the 4th Annual Stuff the Bus for Hope House.

“It’s always rewarding to see youth who have received social services turn around and give back to the community,” Cheryl Anderson, SRA teacher, said.

SRA also had a Day of Giving where they volunteered at Coldwater, Hope House, Pro Deo Youth Center, John Knox, Lee’s Summit Social Service and Hillcrest Transitional Housing.

“The kids are becoming more civic minded,” Burt Whaley, SRA principal, said.

To celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving a traditional meal was served for the youth at SRA. The students wrote cards for soldiers, collected blankets for children at Children’s Mercy and pillowcases for Hope House.

One of the ways they raise funds is to pay a $1.00 to wear a hat to school.

“Thank you, SRA students, for your dedication to community service,” Susan Coffman said.

This week’s Character Patrol is brought to you by Susan Coffman.

Be inspired to notice the random acts of kindness that are part of every day.
