One of my favorite traditions at Chets Creek is our "Seasons of Giving" project. Each class is encouraged to support a cause that teaches the children about giving and service during the holiday season. Classes choose deserving projects such as supporting Beth Young (a former Chets teacher that is now serving a full time mission in Africa) or collecting blankets for the homeless or collecting coloring books for Wolfson Children's Hospital. There is also a toy drive to help 165 families in our Chets Creek family! There are so many opportunities.
Our class chose to support "Promise to Kate" which is a foundation started by teacher Elizabeth Conte and her husband to find a cure for myotonic muscular dystrophy, a disorder that her daughter Kate (on the left) was born with. We are thrilled that other classes and friends have joined us in teaching our children about supporting Kate by making items for a silent auction. Make sure to stop by our lobby and make a bid on one of the delightful items! Below is just a sample!
The beautiful pots below were made and donated by our talented Art Teacher, Jen Snead.
