Under the leadership of Ms. Dietz, Ms. Lipson and Mr. Morris, CPHS freshmen participated in a service learning initiative to benefit Guwe Secondary School, its sister school in Zimbabwe. As part of a tradition in place since 2005, the students teamed with members of the SPARC/Interact Club to organize a collection of school supplies, sporting goods and clothing for the school, and also wrote a class card and enclosed class photos in their care packages. The initiative served as a supplement to the students’ lessons on African culture, which have been facilitated through reading comprehension assignments aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards and state Comprehensive English Exam.
