Our Community Service Projects

We want our students to learn the importance of getting out into the community and making a difference in the lives of people around them, putting into practice the Character Counts! pillars of Caring and Citizenship. We participate in several different activities throughout the year that help students gain responsibility and become active participants in the community.

Lighthouse Rescue Mission - Coins For Caring
Each year, Cypress joins schools throughout the district to raise money for Tulare’s Lighthouse Rescue Mission. Last year Cypress raised $600.85 dollars to donate to the outreach needs of women and children in our community. Our drive this year was October 19 through October 23. Our goal was to raise $1 per Cypress student, and we did it! With your help, we were able to raise $634! This was a great way for our students to put into practice our pillars of character and show that the Cypress community C.A.R.E.s.

American Heart Association - Jump Rope for Heart
Jump Rope for Heart, sponsored by the American Heart Association, raises money to help kids with special hearts. Cypress has had the opportunity to participate in this event for the past four years. This year we raised $3,457 to help the American Heart Association reach its goals and had a great time celebrating our accomplishments at our event.

United for Good
This year Cypress has teamed up with TCSD schools throughout the city of Tulare to support Friends of Tulare Animal Services. Friends of Tulare Animal Services is an organization dedicated to supporting Tulare Animal Services by improving the welfare and well-being of animals in our community. They provide assistance in the form of promoting adoption and fostering programs, organizing events, raising awareness about responsible pet ownership, supporting spay/neuter initiatives, and transportation. Join us in supporting such an amazing organization by purchasing your 23-24 UFG shirt that we wear every Wednesday to show that we are United For Good! 
Canned Food Drive
Cypress, together with schools across the district, held a canned food drive for those who needed a little extra help this holiday season. With your help, our Scorpions worked together to collect over 1,180 cans to help our community!
