North Students Learn the Value of Community Service

From writing holiday greeting cards to mopping the floors of their gymnasium, sixth graders at North Middle School took time to give back to their community - but not without some help!

North Polar Bears teamed up with the Denver Broncos and Mile High United Way for a #CharacterChallenge to write holiday greeting cards, clean up their school grounds and learn the value of community service.

“Community service is important because it helps give back to others in a positive and meaningful way,” said sixth grader Bryan Castaneda. “It teaches me to be a good person and to have empathy for the people around me.”

Dalton Risner of the Denver Broncos explained how giving back can build character and ultimately lead to a happy and successful life.

“The type of person you are is more important than your hopes and dreams,” said Risner. “If you are a good person with a good heart, you can do anything you set your mind to.”

Thank you Denver Broncos and the Mile High United Way for supporting our students and community at North!
