Advisory & Service Learning

At ESM all students participate in service learning projects that are linked to our environmental sciences theme and community-based partnerships.

Students work side-by-side with DEEP, Trinity College, , and the Farmington Watershed Council.  Service learning provides hands-on field experiences which are tightly connected to our studies and environment.  Click here to read more about service learning. 
Students and families have participated in some of the following service learning events:  Bird Banding, Monarch Tagging, Invasive Plant Removal, Urban Forestry, and Campus Clean-Up.
These opportunities are available for parents and families as well.  Some of the events occur on the weekends or afterschool.  We also encourage families to find additional experiences for our students and share them with us.  Please check the our school calendar for upcoming events.  For information or to offer opportunities, please contact Doreen Clapis or Kirsten Devlin.
