A group of Loomis Chaffee students engaged school-aged children on the topic of homelessness at a Paddington Bear-themed event at the Windsor Pubic Library on Tuesday, January 28.
At Loomis Chaffee you will be part of a community of students, faculty, and staff inspiring positive change in the world. Serving the common good is part of the ethos of the school and dates back to our Founders' vision more than 100 years ago.
Today the Director of Community Service, working with the student-led Pelican Service Organization (PSO), several other student service organizations and academic departments, plans the wide variety of service opportunities available to you. In fact nearly all Loomis students participate in community service activities during their time on the Island. These activities are woven into all aspects of life at the school so wherever your interests may lie and whatever your availablity of time you are bound to find an opportunity to help others. And if the opportunity or particular passion you would like to pursue is not already being addressed, we will help you create that program.
The Island was abuzz with holiday spirit in December as Winter Break approached and students, faculty, and staff found time to connect with local community members and celebrate the season on campus.
Loomis Chaffee students and art teacher Christian Ryan put the finishing touches on a mural decorating Windsor's L.P. Wilson Senior Center in November. Students in Loomis' after-school Community Service Program have many opportunities to make neighborhood connections. View the story.
