Thank you Inly Upper Elementary Students!
Back in the Fall, the Upper Elementary students at the Inly School visited the Susan Phippen House to assist us with our Christmas giving. They worked in groups of ten, over the course of several Fridays, to learn about our organization and volunteered their time to organize, label shelves, and stock the hundreds of toys, crafts, books and sports equipment that have been donated to Scituate Community Christmas.
At the outset of each visit, the students learned about the origin of SCC, Susan Phippen’s passionate leadership, and vision. The students truly made a difference and learned the power of impact in their community! Their organizational skills and labor of love made it much easier for our volunteers to prepare the donation boxes for the busy holiday season!
Inly School students have been tasked with creating a social entrepreneurship project that takes an established organization, like SCC, to help further its mission in the community. Now a group of eight Inly students, who have chosen Scituate Community Christmas as their partner organization, will be tasked with creating unique ideas for helping SCC improve and grow. Their project will culminate with a school-wide event called Learning Fair showcasing their ideas in March.
Go Inly! Thank you for your continued solid support of our efforts!
On Friday, March 9th, the Inly School held its Learning Fair. The Fair is a culmination of the students’ research projects, which are then presented during the Fair. Eight creative students chose Scituate Community Christmas as their project! Some ideas included the placement of the Susan Phippen sign, alternative ways to sort the toys, and creating decorative light kits for the families so their homes could be festive inside as well as out! Those of us who were able to attend were impressed, not only with the great ideas, but the amount of thought and preparation that went into these projects. Scituate Community Christmas is grateful for all the hard work and creative ideas, many of which we hope to implement soon! A HUGE thank you to Inly School and the students!
