Hoops and Loops? What is that?
You may be asking that question if you are new to CHCS this year.
Hoops and Loops is our spring fundraising event that is a lot of FUN for ALL our students.
Here is how it works: Young fives – 4
th grade students walk/run around the gym (loops) for a set time
based on their age. 5th
-12th grade students have the option of walking/running loops or shooting 100
free throws (hoops). Students collect pledges for the number of loops they walk/run or the number of
free throws they make OR they collect flat donations for participation. We all go over to the THBC
gym and have a great afternoon of fun while we raise support for our school. We ask that students
collect from their sponsors and turn the money in within one week of the event. For example, if
grandma pledges Sally $0.25 per loop and Sally walks 60 loops, grandma gives Sally $15.00 to
support CHCS. Grandma’s donation is 100% tax deductible and if she pays with a check,
we will create a contribution statement for tax purposes. Some sponsors prefer to donate a flat
amount rather than a per loop/hoop amount.
There are awards and prizes to be earned. Please see the note and pledge form that went home this
week and feel free to call the school office if you have any questions. Preschoolers are welcome to
participate but since this event is on a non-school day for them, we don’t expect it.
We have two areas that we need your help on the day of this event.
We need volunteers to help transport our students over to THBC in the afternoon and we need a
few volunteers who can help at the registration tables. Parents are welcome to join the fun as
spectators, or if they collect pledges, they can participate as well!
All students are to be picked up at THBC at the end of the day.
Please call Mrs. Kearns at 775-4272 if you are available to help.
