Cavs Reach Out for the Holidays

Danielle Pasciuto, Margaret Brown, Jessica Weber, and Alyssa Mitarotondo sell ornaments at the SAVE Club booth at the CHS Holiday Bazaar on December 1. Reagan Wren, kindergarten student at New Town Elementary School, and her mother, CHS teacher Kim Wren, look on.

Cavaliers are involved with several community outreach projects this season. From buying ornaments to filling shoeboxes, to donating books to purchasing that special gift that fulfills a holiday wish, to putting on your favorite pajamas to board The Polar Express, there are a variety of ways CHS students, staff, and community members can reach out to others during this season.

The SAVE Club is sponsoring the Union County Christmas Bureau Gift Tree housed in the Media Center. Everyone is encouraged to pull a gingerbread man from the tree that has the wish of a local child printed on it, purchase the item indicated, and return the wrapped gift by December 14. Our school is helping fulfill the holiday wishes of 51 Union County children. The SAVE Club is also continuing their ongoing efforts to assist the Turning Point Domestic Violence Shelter by selling white CHS ornaments and purple SAVE ornaments for $5 each. All proceeds benefit Turning Point. If you are interested in purchasing an ornament, you may contact any SAVE Club member or adviser Ms. Leah Ross. If you would like to adopt a wish from the gift tree, you may call or visit the CHS Media Center.

The BLU! (Book Lovers Unite!) Club is sponsoring a new and used book drive to collect books to be delivered to The Clyde and Ethel Dickson Shelter for battered women in time for the holidays. Donations of books for all ages are appreciated and may be dropped off at the front office or in the Media Center through December 14.

The Beta Club is assisting with the local Boxes of Love project that provides shoeboxes full of supplies, small gifts, and treats to the Turning Point shelter as well as local homeless shelters in an effort to provide holiday cheer. If you are interested in helping with Boxes of Love, please contact Beta Club adviser Ms. Victoria Lashley.

The CHS Film Club is sponsoring the "Polar Express Experience" to raise money for A Child's Place. The event will be held 1:00-3:30 pm Saturday, December 15, 2012. Please click here for a flyer with more information about the Polar Express Experience!

The CHS staff and student body wish everyone the happiest of holiday seasons!
