Sparrow Clubs at Medina - Service Project to Support Jesse

Medina students have been working at school to complete service projects to earn Sparrow Vouchers for Jesse. For each hour of community service, $10 is raised for Jesse to help him and his mom. Our Medina Goal is 256 hours of service.

Gather some family members and friends to support Jesse by doing a service project (or two) outside of school!  You can turn in your vouchers into the main office.
