Portland High School Comes out to Play

Portland High SchoolPortland High School’s JMG students contributed $1000 to the Catherine Morrill Day Nursery. The class determined that they wanted to focus support on very young kids to ensure that they were ready to learn in Kindergarten. Rather than have the Nursery staff present to them at the High School, the Portland students walked across the city for a site visit to meet their young beneficiaries and learn more about Catherine Morrill’s successful approaches to early childhood education. They also did puzzles, read books and participated in “Circle Time”. As they proudly presented their grant check,Catherine Morrill’s Director Darshana Spach invited members of JMG to volunteer time at special school events.
