SCIP Day was a success again!

Preparing our students for civic life is part of our district’s vision and mission. A long-time tradition, SCIP Day, which stands for Senior Community Improvement Project, allows hundreds of Southeast Polk Seniors to spread out across the district to perform community work that needs to be done. The organizations let us know what they need to be done, inside or out, cleaning, painting, yardwork, or any other odd job. Maybe it’s just spreading joy, and spending time with others.

One of the highlights of the day has always been the Altoona Lions Club providing lunch at Thomas Mitchellville Park. After a morning of hard work in individual groups, everyone comes together to celebrate. Thank you Altoona Lions Club for all that you do for our schools and the community!Altoona Lions Club Serves SCIP StudentsThanks to all of the organizations that help make this annual day of community service possible!
