We are thrilled to be a recipient of the “Tools for Schools” grant. Chileda received the $750 award from WXOW, Brenengen Auto, SSE Music, and Dependable Solutions in May. Thank you to teachers, Anita Dickman and Trista Zimmerman, for applying for the grant!

The award will help with the implementation of a healthy habits program which will focus on hygiene, healthy eating, personal care, and overall well-being.

Our first purchase will be water bottles for the students! Funds will also be used to purchase materials for art projects pertaining to germs, teeth brushing, food pyramids, etc.

Thank you to WXOW, Brenengen Auto Group, Dependable Solutions and S.S.E. Music, Inc. for your generosity and helping Chileda implement this new wellness program for our students.
