CHIME Walk-n-Roll-athon

PLEASE DONATE

Did you know that Art and Music are not funded by the school district? In fact, the Art and Music programs at CHIME are parent supported projects. It is through the fundraising efforts of the CHIME community that we are able to enhance our children’s education through the arts. Our annual Walk-and-Roll-a-Thon will be held on Friday, January 27 for TK-5th Grade. This the main fundraiser that ensures these amazing programs continue. It’s a fun and engaging event were students walk, run, roll and even dance around the course we set up on CHIME’s field. Please make a pledge to a student at CHIME. All money raised goes directly to supporting Music and Art at CHIME. Thank you!

The facility is attached to the university and is a educational teaching school.  She is in the half day PM class. The schools philosophy is play based with a focus on teaching and nurturing the’whole child.’

Ella is learning with traditional and special needs classmates. The CHIME program and its teachers are wonderfuly skilled, compassionate educators and we feel very lucky she gets this learning experience.

She is flourishing , having the routine of school 4 days a week.  Ella has even made a new best friend *Ellie, the little blonde girl next to her in the class photo*.

 Every day she comes home with new songs,  art work, stories and requested play dates. Her teachers would tell you that while she was cautious her first few days at school, she since has been a happy friend and is a thoughtful observer and learner .

Along with joining the schools booster club , as a bonus, I have been asked to be the Room Mom for her class, which I am totally excited about!

We are so grateful that her school is close to Mark and Academic and also grateful to her Nana and Grandpa who are helping in educating another generation of family.
