Why:  CASD Cares was formed as a community service project by a dedicated group of Administrators that includes Susan Breslin, Mike Snedden, Sarah Herbert, Angie Pollock, Angie Lynch, Tammy Stouffer, Kris Carroll and Christine Wolgemuth.  CASD Cares is a way to help and support the communities represented by our school district. 

We have dedicated ourselves to planning events and activities connected to four main goals:

· Caring for community and environment

· Acting responsibly

· Serving others

· Dedicated to our children’s future



Date:  On Saturday, April 25, 2015 the Chambersburg Area School District community will take part in a community–wide clean up event. Our goal is to actively involve as many students, teachers, and families in this event!
