Service-Learning Reflection paper
The student learning program is a reliable knowledge which enhances the skills of students. Participation in SLOs facilitated me learn significantly. For the participation, the whole day of March 30th was utilized. For SLO the place that I choose to spend my day learning different things was Serna Elementary. The address of Serna Elementary was 2569 NE Loop 410, on the access road between Perrin Beital and Starcrest, which I found from the flyer. The flyer had enough knowledge about the address, timings, and other details of the event which made it easier to join.
On the 29th of March, I reached the Serna Elementary. The reason to visit the place one day before the event was to help the six students regarding the scheduling the event. Through proper consideration, whole group decided that the event will be started at 8 AM and will be ended at 2 PM. All other details that were about the volunteers and requirement of the event were also discussed. There was a chance that the SA Food Bank will donate food to the people. Though it was not confirmed, however, if SA Food Bank had confirmed their participation then a team was required to make the boxes of food for the families who would come to attend the event. Another reason to be present on the event on 29th was that it was an option that if someone came a day before for the preparation of the event, he would not have to stay the whole day. The signup sheet was already distributed by 18th of March in the class and flyers were the source to know about the various vendors available in the event.
Various activities were designed to attract students. The students who had a major in arts or were good in the artwork were needed to create an interesting desk card to write the name of the group on each card. These cared were then placed on the table of each group. I had arranged the poster board and marker on 21st March to save time and to organize arrangements in timely manner. 8 AM was the time given to all the students to be present on the 29th of March to conclude the necessary arangeemnts. There were diagrams with locations for every group setup. To be on the safe side, char were arranged both outside and inside the school, as the event was outside the school but in case of rain, the area was designated inside the school. Handout materials were placed at signup table in donated VIA backpacks. The setup was arranged for face painting and other students activities. I also helped with the setup of DJ, food tables, and law enforcement. For a trade-off, staff snow cone machine, staff sign-in table, and hand out raffle tickets were available. A proper traffic plan was developed. The other area in which students participated and put their effort to make the event successful included directing traffic, helping patrol the area, helping officers and other assistance, helping in parking for dignitaries like other elected officials. Besides all these duties, there were the number of activities and duties in which students could participate to learn and enhance their service learning. It was the eight-hour duty in which one could learn a lot of stuff regarding service learning.
The event was arranged for the students and their parents. In addition, students were the main source for arranging the event. I participated in different thing on the day of the event, also days before the event. I choose this activity to learn about the teamwork as the arrangement of the event required the involvement of a number of people for a single task. Furthermore, I learned about time management, as time was the key to the event. For instance, flyers were distributed week before, final arrangements were completed a day before the event, and I was present on time at the event. Therefore, the most important thing that I have learned through the event was time management. The community that comprised mostly students, participated in a number of activities like face painting through which they tried to enhance their artistic skill. I would like to participate in events like this in the future.
Moreover, the students that participated with me learned lots of things. For instance, the first student was involved in the card making for the tables. He learned more about creativity by cutting cards in different styles and writing group names in beautiful handwriting. The second student helped in the setup of the chairs, he learned about how to utilize the specific area for the maximum number of people. He arranged the chairs in such a way that people could easily move and find the spot to sit. The third student was involved in traffic arrangement. He made sure to make people park their vehicles in a systematic manner. He also received the special guest, invited for the event. It helped him to help people and to guide the guests to come to the area arranged for them. The fourth student had duty on the signup table. He helped the people how to fill the paper and guide them about the event. The fifth student was involved in the packing and distribution of the food. He learned how to distribute the limited food supply to all the people that came in the event. All the students learned something useful from the event. To conclude, I received a significant learning experience from the event.
