Pay It Forward Day:
Pay It Forward Day is celebrated every April in Garden City Middle School. Pay It Forward Day is a global initiative to promote the power of giving. Doing one nice thing for another demonstrates that people around us care. Students and staff are encouraged to wear blue to recognize this special event. The day is culminated by students handing in a log sheet (GC Cares) of volunteer work that has been completed in and around the community from January through April. The log sheet includes a reflection of work that has been completed by students. Volunteer work may include work at a local hospital, religious affiliation, Girl/Boy Scouts, tutoring, garden work for the elderly, food drives and much, much more. The Garden City Middle School typically has 200 or more students participate in the program each year.
