Shrewsbury – More than 50 Sherwood Middle School students, faculty, and parents showed up on a Saturday to give back to the town and their former school, Beal Early Childhood Center. The Sherwood School's Student Voice Program hosted a cleanup day Nov. 2 to clear away tree debris and trash from the school and playground areas, as well as weed, mulch, and trim the green spaces. Members of Student Voice work together with parents and faculty to organize community service projects. The theme of the cleanup was “Big friends helping little friends.” For more information about Student Voice, visit http://cvirzi.wix.com/student-voice.
