GCAA Students assist Syrian refugees

Islamic center pic Students from Grand Center Arts Academy started 2016 on the right foot with a day volunteer service on Monday, January 4.  Eighteen students and parents from GCAA met at the Islamic center of St. Louis to help organize and distribute goods to Syrian refugees recently relocated to the St. Louis area. Two of the students are working on volunteer hours for their "Close Up" trip to Washington DC with Ms. Farnworth and Mr. Newton. All the students showed their best selves and represented the school wonderfully, while recognizing that volunteer service can be meaningful and fun! Story by Shanara Gasbrielle
