Letters to the Editor: OVUHS Community Service Day a success

On Friday, May 26th Otter Valley held its second-annual community service day. The purpose of the day was to build community as well as say thank you to local businesses and organizations who have supported Otter Valley and its students. A total of 45 advisory groups participated in service projects in Brandon, Leicester, Pittsford, Whiting, and Sudbury, as well as on-campus. Projects included greening up, painting, spending time at local senior and parent/child centers, doing trail work on OV’s Hawk Hill trails, and more. 
Grades 7-12, as well as faculty and staff, braved the rainy weather to help serve the community, and all participating students and staff received a student-designed t-shirt and water bottle with the logo, “Even Better Together.” Projects took place from 9-11 a.m., and were followed by a school barbecue and annual Spring Fling event. 
Upon their return to OV, students were treated to a slideshow of photos from the various community service sites. Alum Chyenne Dayton and Freshman Ian Ouellette created the slideshow. 
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all community members and businesses who hosted us for projects this year:
