On February 28th, the Cat in the Hat inspired the students to wear a hat all day long for just $1.  Cumulatively, the students raised $100.  The funds will be used for local disaster relief in Waupaca County.  The most prevalent disaster locally are RESIDENTIAL FIRES.  Funds raised are used for such basic needs as temporary shelter, food, clothing, shoes, bedding, linens, the replacement of prescription medications, eyeglasses, and more. 

“Down the street, across the country, around the world…the Red Cross is there” because of compassionate, generous American citizens like the students and faculty at Chain O’ Lakes Elementary
