The Canton Board of Selectmen welcomed members of two Community Problem Solving teams at their past two meetings and offered their congratulations while pledging their continued support for both groups.

On Tuesday, January 24, the selectmen heard a presentation from Team CROWN, a group of Kennedy School fourth graders who are committed to reducing the amount of waste in the community. The students plan to hold events to raise awareness on how waste is harmful and teach residents how to reuse a wide range of materials more efficiently.

One week later, on Tuesday, January 31, selectmen heard from the members of Project RISE, a CHS-based Problem Solving Team committed to helping refugees become integrated into a new society and education system. The students provided statistical and demographic information on current refugees, discussed some of the unique challenges that refugees face upon entering the United States, and relayed their belief that “all people, including refugees, are equal and that equality makes the world a better place.”
