(Victor Valley)—When you think of May in the High Desert, the first thing that comes to mind is the annual San Bernardino County Fair. Thanks to a generous donation from the fair, members of Taylion High Desert Academy’s Student Council will be able to experience the unmatched experience firsthand.
The Student Council has shifted their focus this year from primarily raising funds to volunteering more within our community. This year, students have participated in more community service based projects than in any previous year. Such projects include participating in the city of Victorville’s Community Clean Up Days in the fall and spring, assisting seniors with a craft day at the Foremost Senior Campus, assisting in the planning and construction of a Christmas Parade float with the High Desert Outreach Center, serving Thanksgiving dinner at the Adelanto Senior Center, and more. Students also created projects to give back, recently wrapping up a successful clothing drive, with clothes going to the High Desert Homeless Shelter.
“We want to thank the San Bernardino County Fair for their generosity,” said Evelyn Sandoval, Principal of Taylion High Desert Academy. “Our students were thrilled to be able to attend this year’s fair, and we are thrilled to be able to provide them this no-cost opportunity in recognition of all of their hard work and dedication this school year.”
Taylion High Desert Academy is a free public charter school, serving grades K-12 with programs in Home School and Independent Study. With locations in Adelanto and Victorville, Taylion Academy aims to bridge the academic achievement gap through a personalized learning model that prepares students to be college and career ready.
