Community Comes Together for Big Sunday

On May 5, Windward once again partnered with Mar Vista Elementary for Big Sunday, one of many such events in a month-long betterment initiative devoted to providing service in the community. Windward students, parents, and faculty teamed up with members of the Mar Vista community to bring a fresh look to the Mar Vista Elementary campus. Volunteers painted classrooms, pulled weeds, and provided general upkeep, further fostering the spirit of community Windward so proudly shares with its neighborhood. Said Ashley Goodman, Director of Service Learning, on this year’s event:  “It was so wonderful to see the two schools, who are a part of the same community, come together on a Sunday morning. We accomplished so much in just a few short hours. Several people were having such a good time, they elected to stay well past the end of the event to put finishing touches on the projects they were working on! Mar Vista Elementary is a great community partner, and we enjoy working with them both inside and outside of the classroom.”
Windward School is a 7-12, co-educational, independent day school in Los Angeles, California.
