Amphi Middle School Students Learn Lifesaving Bleeding Control Skills on Kindness Day
Giving Thanks! Students at Amphitheater Middle School continued their Pre-Thanksgiving tradition of participating in Kindness Day. On Wednesday, November 22nd, 180 students and faculty received life-saving Bleeding Control training.
Students rotated through different stations to complete projects for the community. They learned Bleeding Control skills, made friendship bracelets for TMC for Children, blankets for sick children who are recipients of Project Linus, placemats for The Salvation Army, learned about kindness towards animals, and much more. Community groups such as ICSAVE and the Southern Arizona Stop the Bleed Coalition came in and hosted some great educational workshops and teachers helped the students write letters to send to Southern Arizona servicemen and women who are away from their families.
One of the values of the Amphitheater School District is Service to Community. The students look forward to this event from the first day of school. It gives them a sense of pride and what it means to give during this Thanksgiving week.
