This week is Make-A-Wish Week! Help CHS provide a special wish for a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. We’re joining forces with Hamilton High to fund a wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. CHS’s goal is to collect more money than the Huskies and have our name announced as the winner at this Friday’s football game. Plus, if CHS donates $1500, Mr. Rother will provide “special entertainment”, in costume, at Friday’s pep rally. StuCo will collect donations during second hour on Tuesday and Thursday. Also, look for the change jars in the courtyard daily during both lunches. Let’s help create a life-changing wish experience for a child!
