J.E. Jones recently held a Heavenly Hats fundraiser. For this fundraiser, each student who donated a dollar could wear a hat to school. The dollar goes to the Heavenly Hats Foundation. Heavenly Hats is a foundation that provides brand new hats to people who lose their hair due to treatment of cancer.
The first annual CHS Talent Show on Friday, November 12 was a huge success. About 300 audience members were on hand, and they were treated to sixteen one-of-a-kind acts. The event’s success rests with the fact that so many students and community members came together and positively supported our soon-to-be American Idol winners.
We are already planning for the event next November. Please congratulate the following students on their participation in the event:
Zach Butzlaff, Kyle Buckner, Nikkie Schwartz, Justin Parve, Joshua Dailey, Kendall Corder, El-Amin Sharif, Roxanne Thiede, Maggie Duris, Thomas Ezetta, Kim Garlie, Diana Dombrowski, Zach Plachinski, Blake Mani, Liz Michalzik, Jim Yang, Sam Johnson, Duncan Kostowicz, Eddie Commodore, Dominique Dalton, Alex Bauer, Correy Markowski, and Brad Crocetta
It's generosity in its finest form. So far this school year, the Cudahy School District teachers, staff, and administration has raised over $8,000 (and counting) for various charities.
These charities include:
* United Way's "Combined Giving Campaign", raising $5,537. This is up $3,177 from last year.
* National Lee Denim Day (for women's cancer), raising $1,283. This is up $268 from last year.
* Pancreatic Cancer Network, raising $1,245.
* Upcoming charities: Project Concern, Ronald McDonald House, and National Kidney Foundation.
Little by little, we all work together to make a difference in our community and in the world we live. Thank you so much to the Cudahy School Distict staff for making a contribution and helping to make this difference.

On Sunday evening, Dr. Peter Flaig and Dr. Steve Hasiotis contacted the Matt Geiger, Principal of General Mitchell Elementary school, to create a unique connection. The connection is to have grade school students learn about Antarctica, science and animal life utilizing a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Over the next couple months, Antarctica’s summer months, Antarctica is open for scientist from around the world to study its unique environment. Dr. Steven T. Hasiotis from the University of Kansas will lead a team including Dr. Peter Flaig from the University of Texas- Austin, “looking for fossils in rocks that range in age from 400 million years to 200 million years old.” Their goal “is to collect and describe as many new fossils from these rocks as possible. These fossils will tell us about life and the environment on Antarctica before it was covered in ice”
