Raising Money for Relay for Life

As you know, this year Chets Creek will be hosting the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event on May 1st and 2nd! To get our kids involved in making a difference, we are holding a COIN COLLECTION DRIVE at our school. Starting this week we will be collecting coins in our classroom. Students can bring in spare change to donate to cancer. You can help them earn change by letting them do chores around the house, by doing extra reading, and more! Students will also have a chance to earn change to put in our jug through positive behavior in our classroom. The coin drive will go until Friday, April 24th. Last year, we raised almost $3,000, so let’s do it again!

We also want to invite families to come out to the event! Both of us (Miss Thomson and Miss Lewis) have been a part of the planning for this event all year long. We will both be there the entire 18 hours! We would love to see our students and families come walk with us and join in on the activities. The event begins at 6:00 on Friday, May 1st. You can come for an hour or bring your family to camp out for the night! Let us know if you are interested! As always, thank you for your support.
