Erie Day School’s National Junior Honor Society created a community service project, ‘Colors for Cancer,’ with the proceeds going to the Regional Cancer Center in Erie.All Erie Day School students had the opportunity to participate in ‘Colors for Cancer,’ a week-long event that let students exchange one article of their school uniform with the ‘color of the day’ for a donation of $1.Each day represented a particular cancer:red/pink for breast cancer, blue for colon cancer, orange/yellow for leukemia, purple for pancreatic cancer, and multicolor for all cancers.Sarah Humphrey, Regional Cancer Center representative, was on-hand at the presentation event to receive the donation of $660.00.Service learning is an integral part of an Erie Day School education and is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

The Erie Day School Georgiana Fust Patterson Chapter of National Junior Honor Society members include: Connor Coughlin, Athan Diniaco, Abbey Forehand, Olivia Kern, Alexander Lamis, Xavier Migliaccio, Matthew Prenovitz, Joseph Sorce, Luca Spracklen and Northern Wincek, and Mr. Brian Gutowski, Advisor.

Our highly educated and engaged faculty encourage students to develop international-mindedness as they realize their roles as responsible citizens in a global community.
