The Center for Academic Success will host its fourth blood drive this year on May 14th, 2014, from 10 am – 2 pm at the Sierra Vista campus. The event is open to the public. Partnering with the American Red Cross, CAS participates in blood drives as an important way to foster community involvement in our students and to raise awareness for diseases which can be cured or abated with blood transfusions. In the past, CAS has been recognized by the American Red Cross for its outstanding participation in this critical-need area. To participate, please contact the high school office at 520-439-3500 and sign up for your appointment time. Walk-ins will also be accepted during the event as space allows. Please bring photo ID, blood donor card (if applicable) and be prepared to answer some minor medical questions. Students ages 16-18 may participate only with parental consent. Please download the consent form here. For more information about how to volunteer with the American Red Cross or ways blood donations save lives, please visit the local chapter’s website, here.
What do cotton balls, rubber bands, a disposable diaper, and a Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) software all have in common? They have all featured in our high school’s Introduction to Engineering class in the last few weeks. Utilizing industry-standard CAD software, students in the class attempt to solve real-world problems with technology and available materials. The last “instant challenge” was a team solution to an oil spill. Read more about this program and our Project Lead the Way initiative by visiting our high school website.
In an ongoing partnership with The American Red Cross, The Center for Academic Success held its November blood drive in the administrative building and received 26 donations from students, staff, and community members. The donations will be used to save up to 78 lives. Annual blood drives are just one of the many ways CAS encourages and facilitates student community service and involvement. In fact, our seniors are required to perform 25 hours of service to local nonprofits in order to earn their diploma. Citizenship is one of our key values at CAS, and we are proud to support this worthy cause.
