TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The Christian school had a service day and gave back to several people in the community.

"It makes me really happy to know that these people support us and we can support them," student Chloe Tabb tells me.

Fifth grade students at the school planted flags and sang for Becky Brown who lost her son in Afghanistan in 2012 and the students paid their respects.

"It felt great that they would honor me that way," says Brown.

Students like Kai Demoor knew the message of the service day.

"Give people joy and how to make people happy and not just yourself," says Demoor.

Not only did Lighthouse Christian students plant flags at the Brown residence, they also went out to the Twin Falls Police Department.

"We are washing cars," says Ellie Dllian who is a second grade student.

The students also brought lunch for the officers.

Teacher at Lighthouse, Nicole Tabb, says, "We hope that they learn to serve others and not just themselves to go out and really help the community and especially those officers who protect our city and keep us all safe."

Second grader Jema Killoy enjoyed her time.

"I feel happy because I really want to help and I want to be nice," says Killoy.

The police department felt that appreciation.

"It makes me feel really proud as a resident of Twin Falls and especially as a police officer here in Twin Falls City knowing that we have great community partners like this," says Chief of the Twin Falls Police Department Craig Kingsbury.

The school has been doing this service day for years and plans to continue.
