The CCJH PTO donated money to yearbook, art, physical education and the life skills program at its meeting in December..
The group decided to donate $1,500 to Gail McFarland’s art class, Brad Rumple’s P.E. class, Jason Davis’ yearbook and Desirae Bickle’s Life Skills. This money is going to be used to pay for things the class needs or is using for a project of some sort.
The art class was donated $500, P.E. and yearbook each received $400, and the Life Skills program was donated $200.
Mr. Davis said he appreciated the donation and will use some to buy better camera equipment.
“Some of the money went toward the purchase of five yearbooks,” Davis said. “We will be using rest of the the money to buy a new lens or two. They are very expensive, so we may have to save up a little bit.”
Some of the money will be used to improve older equipment that is no longer useful. It will be used to buy new equipment for the class and new materials that needed to be replaced. Coach Rumple says he appreciates what the PTO has done and will use the money to buy new dodge balls. McFarland is using some of the money to buy ceramic clay for her clay unit.
“The PTO has helped my classroom in need they have bought weight training equipment and have helped to improve our PE equipment,” he said. “They always come through.”
The classes having better equipment and materials will benefit students who take the classes.
“It helps students in class by giving them access to better equipment, which helps everyone produce better images,” Davis said. “Ultimately, that makes our book better, and that benefits everyone who buys one. The nice thing about buying nice equipment is that we can use it for many years so it is a gift that keeps on giving.”
