The bell rings at 2:10 p.m. and the students start filing into room 617. They talk amongst themselves, excited to help out in the community and hang out with the coolest teachers, Ms. Stauch and Mrs. Skoczylas.

It is Friday and the SiViCS Club is having a meeting. SiViCS, which is an acronym for "Sierra Vista's Caring Spirit," does one positive activity in the city of Santa Clarita every month.

Our first event was the SCV River Rally, and we cleared trash out from the Santa Clara River. Our second event was participating in Lee National Denim Day on Oct. 2.

Students, staff, family and friends wore jeans and donated $5 to help find a cure for breast cancer. Our school raised more than $2,000.

Our next event will be to run in the SCV Food Pantry's Run Against Hunger 5K race to help raise money to feed hungry families.

The SiViCS Club has been going strong for 10 years, so we asked our teachers to tell us about their favorite past event. Ms. Stauch loves to work on Holiday Houses for needy children, and Mrs. Skoczylas loves when the club goes to the convalescent hospital and puts on a "Spring Fling" show for the patients.

Helping out the community doesn't only help others. It also makes you happy for making a difference. Our goal is to make our world a better place to live.

Alex Iqbal, Malissa Janes and Hannah Wilken are seventh-graders at Sierra Vista Junior High School.
