New CAS Opportunities!

Juniors and Seniors,

I wanted to let you know about three new opportunities for meaningful CAS projects.

1.  Mr. Edwards would like the IB students to initiate, plan, and implement a project to identify, catalog, and label all of the flags hanging in the media center and cafeteria, as well as making arrangements to respectfully retire flags that are obsolete either because it has changed or the nation no longer exists.  I already have one volunteer to take the lead on this project, so please see me if you would like to participate.  This activity could be considered service or creativity, and you could earn at least three of the learning outcomes.

2.  Mr. Distefano still needs volunteers to help paint murals for the Boys and Girls Club of the Big Bend.  This is a wonderful chance to work on creativity for students weak in this area.  It could also be a service project for a good cause, and possibly action (if the weather is hot enough.)  I can’t recommend CAS projects through our school’s art club highly enough; they do great work.

3.  Teen Court is starting up again for the year.  This can be a great project for service or creativity.  Their web site URL is
