Would you take a midwinter jump in Lake Champlain for a good cause?
In a show of tremendous community spirit, students and faculty from Colchester Middle School and Colchester High School participated in the February 2 Burlington Penguin Plunge. The event supports Special Olympics Vermont, which provides opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities to compete in Olympic-style athletic events.
The CSD participants actively recruited brave teammates to help raise nearly $4,000 for this charitable organization!
CHS Humanities teacher Aimee deLaricheliere led members of the National Honor Society, the CHS football team, and other members of the Colchester School District community, including CMS’s Principal Dawn Gruss.
Our schools work proactively to cultivate positive climates both inside and outside of the classroom (please click here to view a fun video of the October 18 CHS faculty flash mob). Working hard to create and foster community spirit has important, far-reaching implications for students and citizens alike.
Great job to everyone who participated—in the water, as members of the unofficial cheering committee, and as financial supporters!
