Service Starts Here! at Tuscaloosa Magnet Schools-Middle, an International Baccalaureate World School, required all students to take part in service activities. Sixth graders were required to serve local communities for at least two hours per school year. Seventh graders designed and built gardens, murals, compost bins, and barn quilt squares for Camp McDowell’s Farm School. They participated in school service opportunities through the recycling committee, clean-up team, and tending to the vegetable and butterfly garden. Eighth graders worked individually or in groups to develop a community passion project. They researched ways to offer assistance, developed a project proposal, outlined a six-month completion plan, and created the project. The project handbook outlined the timeline of required activities to complete and attain the highest levels of all four IB criteria. Faculty and staff served as mentors and guided each group or individual through the project process from October to April. All students were divided among five advisory teams that competed to attain the most service hours bi-annually and win the community service shovel. This trophy, made from a common shovel and decorated with the school’s motto, Discover, Create, Serve, was awarded to the winning team at the end of the year pizza party.
