We raised big money for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center

On December 13, 2019, CES took part in the state-wide Connecticut Children’s Medical Center fundraiser, PJ Day for the Kids!  Hosted by the Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.) club, CES students and staff made donations to wear their pajamas to school.  That evening, CES students and their families attended a Movie Night in the gymnasium, which continued to raise funds for a great cause!
Starting in 2011, a local 2nd grade student decided to create this fundraiser to help raise money and the spirits of his younger sisters, who were diagnosed with cancer.  Eight years later the sisters are cured, however the fundraiser continues to provide support to those children who are fighting cancer (in their PJs) at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.  In 2018, almost 600 schools and businesses participated in this event, raising more than $265,000!
Together, we put Chaplin Elementary School on the map, and raised $818.07!  Congratulations, and thank you!!
