If you haven't already started the process, our online system is quick and convenient, allowing you to complete the majority of the process from your own home.

Bloomfield Hills Middle School students completed a service action project called the "Water Challenge." First, students studied how people in other countries struggle to find and gather fresh water. Next, students only drank tap water for two weeks. "This has been and will continue to be an educational and rewarding experience," Scott Meyer, says. BHMS' donation was selected to help build a sand dam in Kenya.
In a Community Project created by the Bionic Blackhawks Team #2834, titled 'Smart Protection of Poultry from Predators', students Ashton Carrick, Alex Dufour and Hunter Kasravi worked side by side with their mentors to provide "...a community service in the area of automating agriculture to the Bowers Farm". This community service turned out to be an automated door installed in the chicken coop, designed to protect the animals from predators. (Article by: Amanda Howard, BHHS Graduate)

This year, 6-8 graders have focused on a Service as Action learning opportunity. Teachers worked to weave a service opportunity for students within their IB units of study. For our 6th grade class, this meant creating a garden of native Michigan plants which attract butterflies. With the help of Michelle Golembieski, Bowers Farm guide, and the EHMS Green Team, students had an opportunity to transfer the plants to our front gardens, where they can be watered and cared for during the summer months. Students will expand to a greenhouse learning space next year.
