Nine Months of Smiles

We at the Phoenix Private School K-8 believe that Student Leadership and Service is a crucial part of the educational experience for children.  We are now laying the groundwork to put forth a program that will give our students more opportunities to be leaders and to participate in programs that will positively impact our campus, community and planet.

Nine Months of Smiles – This year long project enables each grade level to champion a month long community service project. Every child in our school will have the opportunity to make a real difference by working towards a common goal to help others.
