Mrs. Chastain is working with our CHE fourth grade students to learn about struggles faced by families in third-world countries.


They are reading the book Beatrice’s Goat by Page McBrier.

As a culminating activity, they are collecting change to donate to Heifer International for the purchase of goats.  Each time the fourth graders collect and donate $120, a goat can be purchased.

 A display in the hall keeps the school community aware of how much money has been collected.  We have now collected enough to purchase TWO GOATS!
