Earth Day Cleanup in the CHS Neighborhood

Saturday, April 21 – 1-3 p.m.
Sunday, April 22 – 10- 12:30 p.m.

Pelion Garden at 206 Best Street

This is a TWO DAY option. You can come Saturday from 1-3pm or Sunday from 10am-12:30p. Join us as we spruce up around our neighborhood. We will collect refuse, rake a little, transplant some perennials, prune many of the shrubs, and possibly turn the soil, and repair raised beds damaged by the winter. No skills necessary. Bring your favorite sunhat & work gloves. It might be chilly–dress appropriately. If you have an extra weed wacker or wheel barrow, please get in touch with Pelion Garden Manager, Caesandra.

 

On Saturday, April 28, 2018, a delegation of CHS Parents, staff and students will participate in the Summit Center Autism Walk which is a community-wide effort to raise funds in support of Summit’s programs and services as well as acceptance of individuals with autism in Western New York. The Summit Center services children, young adults, and families affected by autism. This is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts at CHS where approximately 10% of our students have autism and many of our families have accessed Summit’s services at one time or another.

Please consider making a gift at the link below to sponsor the CHS team participating in the Autism Walk. Once you arrive at this page, you will need to select a CHS team member to sponsor. You can choose some familiar faces from the CHS staff such as Mr. Ross, Mrs. Gillotti, Ms. Cronin, Mrs. Keller, Ms. Ford and more! Our team encourages you to counter Mr. Ross’s highly competitive nature by supporting other staff members, particularly in honor of Mrs. Gillotti who is expecting any day now! https://thesummitcenter.rallybound.org/summitwalk/STARS

You can also support the CHS STARS Program (STudents with Autism Rising to Success) by purchasing a custom designed CHS Autism Awareness Month tshirt at this link: https://cityhonors.org/files/documents/autism_awareness__t-shirt_sale.pdf

If you would like to join the CHS group participating in the walk, please follow this link to the registration page and look for the “City Honors STARS” team. Bring your whole family out to walk in honor of your child, student, neighbor, or friend! https://thesummitcenter.rallybound.org/summitwalk/Account/Register

Thank you for your support!!!

Pelion Garden has a goal of raising 12K each year to cover teaching, site management, tools, supplies, and community events. We are looking for various methods to secure this funding. We are open to specific suggestions for sponsorships, advocates, program grants, or corporate give-back opportunities.  We are also looking for folks willing to spearhead, or research, some of these new efforts and/or the ones we already do as some parents may be transitioning soon.
