    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Young Author’s Conference During Community Day

So today was Community Day! If you didn’t know from reading other blog posts, Community Day is a day in the middle of each semester that CSS sets aside specifically to do community service. There are no classes, no clubs, no anything. Everything is shut down to get students focused on getting out in the community and doing things! As a freshman, you’re required to work with your Dignitas class during both. In the fall, you’d do a specific group project, while in the spring, every Dignitas class donates meals in the community for “Thanksgiving in the Spring.” If you’re an upperclassman, it’s highly encouraged to go out and volunteer, but it’s not typically mandatory. Some classes however do require you to participate. Last semester I volunteered at Animal Allies on my own, while this semester my Math Methods course required us to work at the Young Author’s Conference that was hosted right here at CSS. I spent the morning guiding elementary students to their classrooms, where they would then have mini sessions. We had local authors, the Duluth Children’s Museum, and school figures come in and run workshops for students. They learned more about the writing process and spent time improving their writing skills. Afterward, they had Erbs and Gerbs for us volunteers, yum!
