Community Projects

Student Civic Action Projects

The partnership between the schools, General Motors, Earth Force and the City of Wentzville creates opportunities for young people in our community to learn about watersheds in which they live and use that information to better our local waterways. Through this program, students work with community experts, local organizations, and mentors from General Motors and the City of Wentzville to improve our community.

This Earth Force project-based learning system develops communication and teamwork skills as well as encourages excitement in studies of science, mathematics, engineering and social studies.

This year 15 sixth grade classes in the Wentzville School District completed the Earth Force
program. The number of partnerships the students cultivated this year was equally as plentiful
and diverse as the projects themselves. As a whole, the students worked with partners like
Missouri Department of Conservation, Allen’s Tree Service, other local businesses, the
Wentzville School District staff from many different departments, the City of Wentzville and
multiple homeowner associations. The students learned that they can have a positive impact on their community,
but they also know how to motivate and included other community members.

The tabs below detail the process as well as this year's projects completed by Wentzville sixth-grade students.
