Students in SCASD are learning much more than required curriculum inside the classroom. They’re developing character-building life skills that will guide them through life, through many service opportunities offered through the district.

Students in SCASD are learning much more than required curriculum inside the classroom. They’re developing character-building life skills that will guide them through life, through many service opportunities offered through the district. Just a few recent examples include students who raised money for Syrian refugees, jumped rope for heart health (and raised $30,000!), and were recognized by President Barack Obama for teaching English to Malaysian refugee children.

Delta High School and Middle School students raised a total of $907.62 for Save the Children, a UN charity benefiting Syrian refugees, at an event at Webster's Cafe featuring live musical performances, debates, and poetry recitation.


State High senior Dina Kim recently received the national President's Volunteer Service Award for nearly 300 hours of community service teaching English to refugee children and translating letters for South Korean children. Kim’s translation work has included service with Compassion International, a Christian child‐sponsorship agency, and teaching English to Malaysian refugee children. The award included a congratulatory letter on White House stationery signed by President Barack Obama.

Learning to give Back

For the 16th year, Jump Rope for Heart was held at State High in early February, raising over $30,000 for the American Heart Association. 120 students from seven elementary schools in the district participated, jumping rope for 30 minutes straight. This year, district contributions surpassed the $500,000 mark for the event's history.
