OUR CHORES FOR CHANGE PROJECT IS BACK! THIS YEAR WE ARE RAISING MONEY FOR HALF PINT LIBRARY DRIVE AT HALF PRICE BOOKSTORE.
Each year, the kindergarten bound students from Mrs. Janss’ class participate in Chores for Change. The children are encouraged to complete chores at home: making their bed, keeping their room clean, or maybe help setting up the dinner table, in return for a small amount of pocket change. They then place their earnings in the class collection jar, and watch it through the week as more is added each day.
The goal of Chores for Change is two-fold: It helps instill in children that there is value in a job well done, and it also shows them how small contributions from a lot of people add up to a nice sum that can really help do some good.
This year’s beneficiary of the Chores for Change collection will be the Half Pint Library Drive at Half Price Bookstore. Claire’s Day School will match amount collected (up to $500).
