CAS Opportunity - Girl Scout cookie warehouse support
As you know, Cookie Season is upon us! We have a goal to sell over one million boxes of cookies just in Wichita. For the four weeks during the sale we have a “Cookie Cupboard” that is run by volunteers. It was suggested that this could fulfill volunteer hour requirements for students at the school. I would love to have your IB Students volunteer at the warehouse. Responsibilities include pulling orders, sorting cases of cookies, and interacting with the volunteers as they arrive for pick-up. The Cupboard is open from February 8th – March 9th; so your students would more than likely volunteer in the afternoon after school or on the weekends.

CAS submissions affects college visits
Any IB student, submitting "request for absence" for college visits will find it being DENIED if their CAS documentation is not current. It is my belief that IB students are completing CAS, yet a majority are very lax in completing the documentation and submitting it for review. In an effort to influence students to submit their documentation in a timely manner, the above procedure/practice will be instituted. Timely submissions is defined "within the semester". For example, if a student wants their college visit "excused" for second semester, then CAS documentation needs to have been submitted at least by the previous semester. Once a college visit has been denied and the visit has occurred, a later submission of CAS documentation will not reverse the "unexcused" designation. It is my intent and hope that this procedure will be incentive enough for many students to submit their delinquent CAS submissions.
