About 900 students and 200 adults participated Friday in Fox Lake Elementary School District 114's third annual Day of Service.
Fifteen projects were completed around Fox Lake by Stanton Middle School students. Lotus School students stayed at the Grass Lake Road campus to work on five projects.
Students cleaned up the Community Garden, planted flower bulbs, painted garbage cans, served at Feed My Starving Children, made blankets for Project Linus and made superhero capes for sick children.
District 114 Superintendent Heather Friziellie said the program is an all-district effort showing the power of teamwork.
"We are so proud of the Day of Service," she said. "It's an amazing opportunity for our students to learn the power of community service. We also generated, through donations and sponsors, over $30,000 that will come right back to our schools."
