Work Wednesday is a day unlike any other you would expect to find in a
school. Each Wednesday, students put aside their books and academic
studies to put their time and attention into work for others. We assign
students the tasks that they can best manage, whether it’s clerking for
a consignment shop, weeding for a rescue mission, or building a house
for those who could not otherwise afford to buy one. Students also
perform work for the school; not only do they clean and tidy the
building, they also work in our garden and greenhouse. They
have created murals, glass-tile mosaics, quilts, and
benches to make Northfield a more beautiful and comfortable place.
