On Monday January 19, 2015, four students from the Sandwich STEM Academy took part in a service event at Camp Lyndon in Sandwich.  These 8th grade students are Caroline Perry, Alec Abramson, Evan Abramson, and Robbie Haggerty.

They were chosen to take part in this event by their teachers because of their leadership, compassion, and kindness.

Caroline, Alec, Evan and Robbie packed lunches for February vacation for 200 needy children on Cape Cod. They spent the morning packaging lunches, learning about health and wellness, and taking part in a Zumba class. This event was organized by AmeriCorp of Cape Cod.

In addition to the students, Wing School teacher Kristin MacDonald and STEM Academy teacher Wayne MacDonald also took part in the event.
