Carefree Kiwanis donation to support internet safety programs in CCUSD


SCOTTSDALE – Carefree Kiwanis has donated $21,000 to Cactus Shadows High School and Sonoran Trails Middle School, which will bring the Digital Citizenship Academy to the secondary students in the Cave Creek Unified School District. The donation was presented by Rick Heiken, who represented the membership of Carefree Kiwanis.   

CCUSD notes that in today’s fast-paced world of technology and social media, students are often unaware of the dangers that exist in the form of digital predators and the permanent digital footprint that they are creating through social media – a footprint that will be with them for the rest of their lives. The financial contribution that Kiwanis has made on behalf of the students at Sonoran Trails Middle School and Cactus Shadows High School will allow each school the ability to educate and inform students, their parents, and the Cave Creek community at large on the dangers that exist online and the risks that students encounter through social media interactions. 

The Cave Creek Unified School District would like to thank Kiwanis for assisting in educating CCUSD students to become upstanding digital citizens in school and as they move on to college. 

“Keeping our students safe and providing a safe learning environment is one of the most important things we do as school principals. I am thankful to Carefree Kiwanis for helping us keep our students safe in the digital world as well the learning environment,” said Dr. Steve Bebee, Principal at Cactus Shadows.
