The Harrisonville Rotary Club has partnered with Harrisonville Middle School students to complete a community service project for the Harrisonville Parks and Recreation Department. Rotary club members, along with the students, spent a day painting and repairing the pole barns at the North Park Activity Center Sept. 6.

The project came out of the Harrisonville Middle School Bright Futures Council which was seeking ideas for students to give back to the community. A member of the Rotary Club sits on the Council and suggested a partnership since Rotary’s motto is “Service Above Self.”

“This is a great partnership for us…we have great adult role models working with our kids to better our community. It’s a win-win for everyone,” said HMS Principal Chris Grantham.

Rotary and the middle school plan to team up for another work day in October.

Bright Futures Harrisonville is a community-wide initiative developed to ensure all students have the opportunity to be successful. The initiative brings together several areas of the community – business, parents, faith-based, social/human services, and the schools – with the hope that children’s needs can be met with resources from within the community. Each school in the district has a Bright Futures Council, made up of community members and staff members, that meets monthly. To be a part of a building council or to learn more about Bright Futures, contact brightfutures@harrisonvilleschools.org or call 816-380-2727, ext. 1224.
