We're looking for donations and volunteers to make our student-designed pollinator meadow dreams come true! 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders have been working together to plan a pollinator meadow and next week they'll involve the whole school in the project. We're looking for a few donations and hands to help us out.
We could use donations of native pollinator-friendly plants that like sun or partial-sun and a shallow bird bath or dish that could be a water source for pollinators.
On May 27th and 28th, we'll also be looking for adult volunteers and shovels we can borrow. Please get in touch with Talia Miller, Service-Learning Coordinator if you have something to donate or a shovel to loan us. firstname.lastname@example.org

We're excited to share that this summer the Mohawk Trail Regional School District will provide educational and enrichment summer camp programs for grades K-2, 3-6, and middle school students! Additionally, high school students will have the opportunity to take courses at a local college or work as camp counselors within our summer programs.
We are currently seeking community partners (local organizations) to provide new and local educational experiences for all age groups on both our Mohawk Trail Regional School (MTRS) campus or at surrounding locations. The summer programs will be housed at MTRS; however these community partnerships will provide us with opportunities for student field trips and exploration of the communities around us.
**We need your input to provide the best programming we can for all of our students in the district!** Please take a moment to complete this brief survey to share your summer programming needs and interests. I look forward to hearing from you! If you have questions; need additional information; or would like to connect as a community partner, please be in touch!

We are excited to support this district wide program and therefore will not be running a separate summer camp at CCS this year.
