"Living the Mission" was the theme for Tampa Preparatory School's Terrapin Day last week, when the entire student body volunteered and participated in personal growth workshops.
Some of the service activities included volunteering at the Rotary Club campground, Rampello Downtown School, A Brighter Community, Lowry Park Zoo, America's Second Harvest, Meals on Wheels and the Children's Home.
The senior class Ambassadors organized a carnival for kids at Graham Elementary School, and sixth-graders washed cars in the school's parking lot, 727 W Cass St.
