The Value of Volunteering
by Alayne Marcis
Many students of eAchieve, throughout the course of their education, will participate in a required class called Service Learning, which requires time spent volunteering for a certain amount of hours in hopes to educate students based on how their service can help their community and how it can be beneficial. When something is required, it may seem like a chore, but many students come to realize that volunteering is much more than a school requirement. Oftentimes, students continue their volunteer work even after their hours are completed. Where does this magic come from? The students aren’t receiving pay or any other sort of return, what drives them to participate?

Volunteering, plain and simply, affects the community in a number of ways - for many aspects of community life are driven by the very idea of volunteers. Food kitchens, fund raisers, tutoring services, park cleaning, and more are all done by volunteers. Volunteers, then, don’t only affect their own selves but also many of those in the community around them. It’s also important to note that volunteers don’t simply help out the homeless or the foodless, but also those on all ends of the spectrum within a community that enjoy the community services such as parks, streets, Y.M.C.A.’s, and more.

Also, volunteering helps the sense of self. Of course, it does this by solving an intrinsic need for self-belonging and the idea of feeling good for doing well to others. It gives volunteers a chance to give back and be affected by those they help out. They are able to make a difference and contribute towards a larger group of volunteers that keep the world turning with less chaos. Personal growth and self-esteem come from the good feeling of helping out others and is reward enough for those who participate in it. For middle and high schoolers, it gives the chance for younger people to learn more about the world in which they live and gain further experiences in their education, helping out their community at the same time. This is why colleges and jobs look for community service in their applications - it is safe to assume that those with more experience in community service know, essentially, more about the community and are willing to sacrifice some of their some for a better environment.

Ultimately, then, volunteering changes you. It not only changes your daily schedule and your experiences, but it also changes your opinion of those around you and your knowledge of your community. It gives you a chance to learn more about not only your community but yourself. Have fun this summer, eAchievers. Enjoy boating, swimming, no schoolwork, corn on the cob, watermelon, and other things associated with summer - but also consider expanding your mind’s core and your community by volunteering, for it is valuable both personally and to your community.

Students of the Month for March 2014

Spring is in the air (finally). For students who spend their days in traditional classrooms, the sunshine, warmer weather, green plants, etc. can make it difficult to concentrate on school. On the other hand, eAchieve Academy students may choose to attend an eSession from their backyard or relax between classes by going for a walk in the park.  They may even take advantage of a nice spring day by riding their bike to the local public library or cafe and putting in some study time there before heading back home. Being able to enjoy the season is a great way to stay motivated and keep those creative juices flowing.

Speaking of which, it's time to recognize some of our most motivated and creative students whose hard work and academic achievement prompted their teacher(s) to nominate them as one of our March Students of the Month.

Students of the Month for March 2014

Jared Banach, Art/Music
Jared had some technological challenges when he started his Digital Drawing and Painting class, but according to his teacher Ms. Sapa, the 10th grader from Oconomowoc has overcome those struggles and now has shown outstanding effort towards exceeding assignment expectations.

Rachel Benicek, English
"(Rachel's) work is consistently outstanding," says British Literature teacher Ms. Lardinois. "She displays a strong understanding of complex texts and her writing is well composed and sophisticated." Ms. Lardinois also appreciates the way this senior from Verona participates in eSessions.

Katlynn Lorenz, 6th Grade
A 6th grader from Columbus, Wisconsin, Katlynn has impressed the 6th grade teaching team with her hard work, particularly in math and social studies. She has been very proactive in getting the help needed to stay on pace with excellent scores!

Carley Piper, Social Studies
Staying on pace in her classes is particularly important for Carley because she spends her extra time participating in horse shows. Social Studies Teacher Mr. Lehmann says this 8th grader from New London, "...has made a lot of academic progress during the school year and does an excellent job communicating."

Lauren Ponga, 8th Grade
After an admittedly rough first semester, Lauren came to the realization that she needed to make significant changes if she wanted to be a successful online student. The Menomonee Falls resident admitted her first semester mistakes, established a plan for improving and has stuck with it. She has been communicating frequently with her teachers, staying on pace and submitting high quality work. Congrats, Lauren. You were the easy choice for the 8th grade teachers!

Natalia Rudesill, Family Consumer Science
"Natalia demonstrates creativity and talent in fashion/interior design," reports Family Consumer Science Teacher Ms. Schlitt. "She takes great care in submitting detailed assessments." Natalia is in 11th grade and lives in Dodgeville.

Natalie Sadowski, 7th Grade
A 7th grader from Milwaukee, Natalie has consistently stayed on pace this semester and is showing mastery of math topics. According to the 7th grade teaching team, she has done a remarkable job this semester and it shows!! Keep it up!

Elijah Schiek, Math
Elijah has mastered one of the keys to virtual school success; work hard independently, but always ask for help when you don't understand a concept. And when he does ask for help, Math Teacher Ms. Briceno says, "It's a pleasure to work with this student." Eli is from North Fond du Lac and is in 11th grade.

Michael Windward, Health/Physical Education
A 10th grader from West Bend, Michael is in his first year at eAchieve. "Michael consistently attends and contributes to the weekly eSession along with submitting high quality work," according to Nutrition and Wellness Teacher Ms. Pease. "It is a pleasure having him in class."
