Kearsley Christmas Charities Once Again Supports the Community 


Kearsley Christmas Charities was established several years ago to help members of our community who are in need and to ensure they are able to have a Christmas celebration for their families. Each district building does several fundraising events throughout the year that are fun for the students and raise money for a great charitable cause at the same time. This year, Kearsley Community Schools was able to raise a total of $10,438 and assist 129 families during the holiday season.  Additionally, a total of 46 families were adopted by district staff and buildings.  Once again, Richfield Industries was incredibly generous and contributed thousands of dollars of toys for Kearsley kids.



The KHS Student Council put together a wonderful evening of fun and laughter by hosting the Dodgeball Fundraiser!  It was an evening of friendly competition that was enjoyed by all participants and those who attended. The junior class ended up competing against the staff in the grand finale, and taking the title. The staff team had representatives from across the district.  In the end, a little over $1,000 was raised for this year's Christmas Charities.  Huge thanks to all who helped pull this off, especially the Student Council representatives.






 

Armstrong Middle School had several fundraising events such as the homecoming chains, pie throwing, jeans for staff and a district-wide silent auction put on by Shelly Hill. In total AMS was able to raise $7,131.86 for Kearsley Christmas Charities.

 

Fiedler Elementary helped 39 families this holiday season and 4 families were adopted by the staff. Fiedler and other Kearsley staff also collected 140 toys.There were also opportunities for the students to participate in Privilege days! There was Gum Day, Popcorn Day, Pajama Day and another Popcorn Day where students paid a dollar for each day they wished to partake in and all funds raised went to the Kearsley Christmas Charities.


Dowdall Elementary helped 25 families this year and had several opportunities offered to students to help contribute in raising money and supplies for Kearsley Christmas Charities. A tree was decorated with mittens and hats for donation and each classroom did a food drive of items for the food baskets. The students also had the opportunity to participate in dollar day festivities like Grinch Day (dress like the Grinch or a ‘Who’ from Whoville), Winterwonderland Day (wear all white or dress like a snowman), Shiny & Bright Day (wear favorite sparkly or bright holiday clothing), Holiday Sweater Day and Cozy Up & Celebrate Day!
