Make Haste Not Waste

Last Sunday, a group of 12 students joined Ms. Gall and Mr. Kaplan at the Kenilworth Aquatic Garden for a day service. Braving the damp weather and early morning wake up call, the group traveled together over to the park to join in o the JCC's Spring Into Action Day of Service. Students spent the morning cleaning up garbage along the Anacostia River Bank. A few students even jumped into kayaks and canoes so that they could grab the harder-to-reach waste. One student summed up her experience quite eloquently: "I was disgusted at the amount of garbage but feel inspired to try to change it." Stay tuned for upcoming service trips and future opportunities to create change.


  1. i was on this trip and it was fun when we went on the boats. cuz me and my partner was bout to tip ova

  2. That service trip was so much fun. I was the first to go in the boat, it was a little shaky at first, but i eventually got the hang of it.
