Students holding flags on rocks

    Congratulations to INT’s science teacher, Kurt Hood, who has received a grant funding his outing club proposal. The overarching purpose of the INT Outing Club is to provide students with an enriched learning environment that exposes them to multiple real life experiences that take place outside of the classroom. With a focus on community service and outreach, and an appreciation of self-worth, the Outing Club intends to show students the tremendous value in teamwork and helping others. Through volunteering and various field trips, students will learn valuable life lessons, which they can then apply in the classroom and into their own lives.

    The SEL competencies as outlined by CASEL are key focal points for the mission of this group. These outings/experiences will reinforce these competencies and help students to see how these values can be applied in real life, day-to-day interactions. Moreover, the focus of this group is intended to help students explore their new surroundings, increase civic engagement (aligned with LHS core values) and enhance their overall high school experience within the International School at Lawrence High School.
