Instead of celebrating Christmas by receiving, this year the high school Interact club is celebrating Christmas by giving. Through Operation Christmas Child, sponsored by the Samaritan’s Purse Organization, Interact filled 13 boxes (for the second year) for children overseas who may not receive a Christmas present this year. Items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, puzzles, stuffed animals, Barbie dolls, coloring books, crayons, socks, underwear, and packaged food filled the boxes that soon reached the hands of children, ages 2-14 across the world. This year, some boxes went to Ecuador; the destinations of all the boxes are unknown. Not only did the students involved with Interact make the project successful, but Mr. and Mrs. Butler, the Woods/Drafting teacher and Culinary/Personal Finance teacher, filled two boxes on behalf of their family.

This International project is only one of the many projects Interact has completed, and will continue to complete throughout the year. Other projects include multiple spa days for the residents at Prairie Pines, a dictionary delivery to third graders on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and a community wide coat drive. Collection boxes located at the high school and Walmart received approximately 30-40 coats that were then donated to the Police Department following the coat drive. The school resource officer, Officer Aaron Chrisman, has been giving the donations to members in the community that need a warm coat for the winter.

Interact currently has no ongoing projects due to Christmas Break. When January rolls around, projects will start up again.

CHS Will Conduct Community Service Projects for Dec. 23rd

Chadron High School always looks to try a new venture on the last day of the fall semester.  The plan this year is to take some time to "give back" to our community that supports us all year.

From 8:30am to 11:30am on December 23rd, the students and staff of Chadron High School are hitting the streets to provide service to our community. We have many groups of 8-10 students with teacher supervision that are seeking businesses, groups, organizations, or our elderly to assist in any way needed.  We're willing to clean your back rooms or shops, stock shelves, rake lawns or scoop snow if necessary.

We've scheduled many of our stops already, but have the time for several more. If your buisiness or organization is concerned that you don't have 3 hours of work for us, perhaps you can take some time to visit and show us your business for a career experience for our students. 

If you would like to be added to our stops, please call the high school office at 432-0707.

Happy Holidays!
