CAS Project – Service

CAS Project – Props and Costumes

We’re looking for the next Marie Kondo!

Do you like drama? Do you like dressing-up? Do you have a great sense of organization? We have a great CAS project for you! You can be the boss! Mini-boss at least. This is a long-term project. It’s only work in the beginning with a few kids and once you’ve all KonMari-ed everything, you only have to check in a few times a month for the rest of the year.

We need people to help organize the Props and Costume room and one 11th grader to be the Leader.

Talk to Mr Brown first and then sign up on Veracross on Thursday morning.

Service

Have you exceeded the Service requirement for Semester 1 yet? Have your written up your experiences on ManageBac?

Some of your peers have already gone BEYOND the minimum AND put the entries on ManageBac, wrote their reflections and submitted evidence!

The table below shows that a student in G6 has already completed 3 experiences. The students that have the * means that they are participating in some long-term experiences such as Video Review, House Captain etc.

What experiences are you doing? Come in for a chat and we’ll see if they meet the Service criteria.

Stop by on Mondays during Office Hours. If that time doesn’t suit you, email me and we’ll find a time.

There are a few opportunities still available before the holidays:

Trash Busters – come to the Activities Office for info

Teaching English at a Kindergarten – come to the Activities Office for info

Basketball Score Keeping – on Veracross
