Service

LINC-affiliated*: 101: Fund, Do Something, Ideas Center, PHS UNICEF, Think Pink, True Blue

True Blue’s goal is to create a happier, more respectful school community. The club puts on several events throughout the year, including midterm care packages in the second marking period, compliment bulletin boards, and the annual True Blue week with themed days.

In the Ideas Center, students can tutor each other in any subject. Tutors and tutees come from all grades, and can sign up simply by visiting the center, which is located above the main office (see our map on page 6).
