Serve Arcanum returns

Serve Arcanum returns to the community for its 8th annual Serve Arcanum project on Friday, May 7, 2021, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Once again, high school students are available to assist you with projects at your home, business, church, or organization. A few examples of projects that they would be willing to do for you are lawn care, painting, cleaning, and organization. If you or someone you know needs assistance with a project, school administrators will be glad to help them make it happen. All they need from you is to complete a Serve Arcanum form and return it to the school. You can also submit your request to Arcanum High School Principal Jason Stephan at [email protected] The rain date for this event is May 14. All forms are due by April 23, 2021.

Obviously, with COVID this year, they will have to take a few extra precautions, but they are ready and willing to serve you. Please turn in your request form as soon as you possibly can. They look forward to making a difference in our community. You can pick up a request form at the school or email your request to Mr. Stephan as noted above. The purpose of Serve Arcanum is to develop a service-oriented mindset in the students so that when they graduate, they will desire to help make our world a better place. Organizers also want to instill giving back to the community that shows such strong support for our students and school.
