Six Rivers Charter High School’s historical calendar,” “Times Have Changed,” is a service-learning project that takes learning beyond the classroom and into the community.

This fall, Six Rivers created the calendar, which showcases historical photos of local landmarks side by side with current images from the same location along with historical facts about the site.

“This is an example of the sense of interdependence Six Rivers hopes to foster in our students. Without the support of willing business partners and the technical support of Kevin Bell from Western Web, the publication would not be a reality,” said Principal Ron Perry. “In the end, this a great example of service learning. The student directors learned a great deal that will directly apply to life after high school, the community gets a historical look into the past and the senior class earns funds for their trip.”

These calendars not only represent the research, graphic design and historical skills of Six Rivers students, but the power of community partnerships with local students, Perry said.

The calendar would not have been possible without the support of the local community, including businesses, which stepped forward to sponsor publication of the calendar.

“This project was a fun and unique experience and I am glad to have been a part of this project from start to finish. While this calendar became a difficult task at times, I am happy to see the final product,” said Project Director Anthony Womack. The other project director was Jonah Vevoda-Moore.

The calendars are available at McKinleyville ACE Hardware, A & L Feed, Coast Central Credit Union branches, the holiday store at Pierson’s Garden Shop, Sunnybrae ACE Hardware and Wildberries Marketplace. They are $5.

Proceeds from this project fund student activities such as the senior class trip and field trips to college campuses.
