Madison high school students take a day off to volunteer

Non-testing students help out in the community

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Wednesday was an "Enrichment Day" for high school seniors and freshman in Madison City Schools.

It's a day when students, not taking the ACT or ACT Aspire tests, branch out into the community for service projects.

Wednesday morning, a group of students from Bob Jones and James Clemens volunteered at the CASA Community Garden.

CASA Garden is an organization that grows vegetables for senior citizens living on a low or fixed-income.

"I love how like, all this food that we're growing right here is going back to the community. I think it's a really great thing that we're doing here. I'm really happy that I was able to participate in this, " said Jake Munson, a freshman at Bob Jones High School.

"Enrichment Day" was created to get non-testing students out of the schools while juniors and sophomores are testing.

Other students chose to make college visits and visited historic sites like the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.
