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 collected change to donate to Heifer International for the purchase of goats.  Each time the fourth graders collected $120 to donate, a goat could be purchased.

 A display in the hall kept the school community aware of how much money had been collected.  By the time we left for Winter Break, enough had been collected to purchase SEVEN goats!  Outstanding job Rascals!
