Habitat for Humanity in Baytown, Texas

A group of 37 students donated their time and traveled to Baytown, Texas to help build houses for Habitat for Humanity. “My biggest takeaway from the trip was how rewarding it was to be able to spend some of my time and energy to help people who need it,” said Jessica Brooks ’20.

“This was my third year on the trip, and every year I am still astounded by how grateful the people of Baytown are for our service,” continued Annie Knapp, Upper School Science Teacher. “I really enjoyed seeing the previous houses we have worked on being lived in. It is amazing that MICDS students have helped to build so many houses where families now reside.”

Another group of students took a trip to Iceland. Students and faculty chaperones began the trip by touring the capital Reykjavik, taking in the beautiful scenery and architecture of the city as well as dining on some traditional cuisine.

The trip included community service time, where students and faculty helped clean a park and collected plastics from a beach.
