We have beautiful Gardens on our Campus and we could use your help!
Please see this note from Mr. Green Thumbs himself Fletch:
Even accomplished beggars have their limits. We are working diligently on our third garden and the money has run out. We got serious help from ASB, a grant from the Master Gardner’s Assn., a grant from the CHS Foundation, a pallet of soil from Kelloggs and four Rover loads of compost from the Mushroom farm. Martha has caught on to my use of the VISA for school projects and microwaved my card while I was napping. We are putting in three new raised beds, four benches and eight connected planters on Saturday. We will be installing two BIG planters connected with a bench in the main garden by the pond in the weeks to come. We need wood and stain for one large planter and one small one in the newest garden, some small trees for the seating planters, and a load of brown mulch for the ground not taken up by planting beds. Your donation of $25 will be recognized by a engraved 1” X 3” plaque that reads Donated by (your name) to be placed on a bench or planter box in the new garden. Your donation of $50 will be recognized by an engraved 2” X 3” plaque with up to five short lines of text of your choice. Your donation of $100 will be closely followed by my fainting ungracefully into your arms. Thanks for your consideration.
Your Friend, Fletch

Get Ready to Rock!
On December 13th the CHS Tribe will hit the track for a Winter Rocks celebration, welcoming the winter break with music, dancing, games, prizes and the
BEST FUNdraising event EVER!
We Need Some Help from the TRIBE!
We Need Donations and Volunteers

HS Students) Cuties, Pretzels, Granola Bars/Healthy Snacks/Muffins, Pizza
& lemonade for winning class (money to pay for any of the above ;) )
Contact Colleen Kleege at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to contribute.
What is the “WINTER ROCKS” event?
The purpose of the Winter Rocks event is to create camaraderie throughout the CHS campus by bringing together the students, the staff, the administration and the community through a healthy and engaging event that raises community spirit while raising funds to support the students and the various programs they are offered at Clairemont High School.
Students receive an email link that outlines the details of the event and requests sponsorship via a paypal donation on the Foundation website. Students can email the sponsorship request to friends and family.
**The class to raise the most money wins a pizza party on the 20th**
On December 13 Students will be lead to the stadium to participate in a variety of Pep Rally- like activities led by ASB. Each student that participates on the track will receive 3 raffle tickets (in addition to raffle tickets they earned through donations)
One to vote on the Administrator that will have to dye their hair for school on the 20th: the Principal, Vice Principals or Athletic Director.
One to vote on which teacher they want to go to lunch at Luce’s (4 winners)
**Teachers must wear Wacky Winter Wear to participate in the Event.**
One to enter a raffle for various prizes (winners chosen after the walk)

There are many students and families at CHS who are struggling this year and a group of CHS parents wanted to send some anonymous Christmas cheer their way. Like last year, we will be setting up a Holiday Lane for them to “shop through”. Each student will be able to pick out a few items to make their family's holiday brighter.
If you feel so inclined, feel free to drop off gift cards (local businesses and groceries preferred), socks, jackets, dry food items, toiletries, or any other useful items that a family would need.
Items will be collected in Heidi Fulton's office at CHS from now until Dec 18th. This isn’t being sponsored by a group on campus....just trying to keep this worthwhile grass roots effort going in order to help out where it’s needed.
Please feel free to share this and post about this on your social media-let’s widen this circle! Contact Heidi Fulton if you have any questions!
Ho, Ho, Ho......

Please take a moment to jump in that pantry of yours and bring in canned food items!
Our fabulous ASB have created amazing turkey boxes and placed them in 4th period classes.
Can't find a box? We have one in the front office!
All food collected will go to our CHS families.
Thank you in advance for your kindness.
We're excited to have our first surf competition this weekend! Because we are just getting the club started, we'd like to have a quick get together Tuesday Oct. 22nd at 7 pm at 4114 Napier St (across from Santanas in Bay Park) for parents and students.
Look forward to seeing you then!
