From washing windows to bringing cheer to local nursing homes, the students, faculty, and staff at Rocky Bayou Christian School will put love into action during the school’s annual Work-a-thon on Friday, April 12.



More than 700 students in grades K3-12th grade and more than 150 teachers and staff will take the day to work in various service projects for families in need or visit nursing-home residents.



“As we endeavor to train our students in servant-leadership, we are thankful for the opportunity for every RBCS student to take part in this community service project,” said Dr. Michael Mosley, RBCS superintendent. “Our young people should realize that they are a part of a larger community, with needs that often transcend their awareness. The Work-a-thon allows them to meet folks in real need, and then help, in a small way, meet those needs. It’s the best school day of the year for us.”



Work-a-thon reinforces the school’s ongoing mission of developing well-rounded students who are prepared not only for college and careers but for living enriched, productive lives.



Work-a-thon has been an RBCS tradition for more than 25 years, and those blessed by the outreach look forward to the program each year. 



As the Work-a-thon event sponsor, Danny’s Fried Chicken will provide lunch for all the volunteers.
