Robert Luis Stevenson School - Student Service Day


Join Us for the Serve Day:  Saturday, January 25, 2020 - 9am - ??


"Our community is one in which every day, we all do our best to joyfully mind the gap between what we are and what we wish to be, and to do our world some measure of good as we help each other get better."

As a California school enlightened by a global sensibility, Stevenson (also known as RLS, our namesake Robert Louis Stevenson's initials) is premised on a vision of education as the means by which we discover the world and contribute to its transformation, and the belief that one’s education is best pursued in the company of others, for others’ benefit as well as one’s own. Our Latin motto—Suaviter in modo, fortiter in re (which can be translated as “gentle in manner, resolute in action”)—inspires humility and perseverance. Our mission includes three aims: to prepare students for success in both school and life beyond school, to foster their passion for learning and achievement, and to help them shape a joyful life.

An important part of this mission is serving others - whether through reaching out to those in need, beautifying the communities we are part of, exploring and interacting with students and schools in our area or simply encouraging an elderly person in a rest home - serving is education and humbleness in action.

On January 25, 2020, the student body of RLS will be participating in serving throughout Monterey County with schools, cities, non-profit agencies and even on the RLS campus.  Partnering with Love Our Central Coast, these service opportunities are an expression of loving and caring for this community we call home, the Monterey County.

Take the time to review the projects planned for this special day and where your passions might lie - whether with children, cities, homeless agencies - and select a project where you can serve with joy.  How you serve and bless others is an expression of your character and the difference you would like to make in our local community and the world throughout your life.  ENJOY and rich blessings upon each of you as you seek to help others.
