It’s back-to-school time! We hope your children are transitioning well into the school year routine. This is a big change and can be a struggle for students as they settle in with peers, teachers and schedules.
We’re looking forward to kicking off the new school year for the youth in our residential center. In the early days of CCHO, student-age residents attended public school locally. In more recent years, we have provided classrooms with licensed teachers right here on our Wooster campus. These learning environments in our Children’s Leadership & Recreation Center are tailored to address the unique needs of children with trauma.
Due to a change in their service focus, we are transitioning away from Summit Academy as our school provider. For the 2019-2020 school year, we are pleased to begin a partnership with Norwayne Local Schools. Many of our kids are behind developmentally and academically because of trauma and neglect. Their teaching staff will help our students get back on track and see school as a positive place.
Classes start on Monday, September 9. In addition to praying for our students and staff, we have a few unique requests that you may be able to fulfill.
• Large wall map of Ohio
• 40 Classroom Headphones – over the head style, full ear coverage
• Base Ten counting blocks for math (100 to 200 pieces)
• Kidney (or arc) shaped table for elementary-school students (48×72 inch)
Please contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate your donation purchase/drop-off/delivery. Donations may be shipped directly to CCHO through Amazon Smile or other stores.
Thank you for helping our students feel supported in the new school year. It’s a tangible way for them to experience their worth in Christ.
