Senior ‘SCIP’ Day gives back to the community

On Friday, May 19, members of the CCS senior class skipped school for a good cause. Students participated in a Senior Community Involvement Project (SCIP) throughout the greater Cambridge community.

Students visited a number of locations in the community, including the Historical Society, the Mansion at South Union, Main Street, the cemeteries on North Park Street and Turnpike Road, and the Rescue Squad. Students weeded gardens, planted flowers, cleaned gravestones, mowed and weed whacked, built a flower box, raked leaves and more. This was the inaugural event and the school hopes it grows each year.

“This has been a project I’ve been working to get off the ground for years and we did it,” said Caroline Goss, secondary principal. “Our community goes above and beyond to support our students, and I am so proud of our seniors volunteering and giving back to the community. Their hard work made the day a huge success.”

The district would like to thank the Buildings and Grounds Department, the Food Services Department, the Cambridge Valley Chamber of Commerce and Matt Toleman at the Village of Cambridge DPW for their help.
