Community service is an important aspect of students’ education and some students in the Seymour Community School District are looking to serve the community this fall.
Chelsey Schaumberg, who is in charge of Students Taking Action Now (STAN), said the group is once again looking to rake lawns for people in the community. Right now she said they need about seven more lawns to rake.
“The group started raking leaves for the older community members a few years ago as a community service project and enjoyed making a positive impact on the community,” Schaumberg said. “It’s a great way to teach the students how a small act can help and mean so much to someone. Mr. Kuchta even expanded it to including his phy ed classes.”
Schaumberg said there are 58 students in STAN.
“[STAN is] a class where students focus on leadership and teach character building lessons to the second, third and fourth grade classes in the district, as well as try to do some community projects as well.”
The group will be raking leaves on Oct. 29 and 30 and rain dates are Nov. 1 and 2. Times available for raking vary based on class times.
If anyone is interested in having their lawn raked they can contact Schaumberg at (920) 833-2306 extension 450. Schaumberg said it will be a first come first serve basis for raking lawns.
