Students in Cherokee Charter Academy’s Beta Club did their winter fund raiser for Green Pets America Humane Society. The club presented a check of $164 to Green Pets Executive Director Steve Monahan which will help with operational costs of the no kill shelter and animal rescue/adoption organization.
School Principal Vanessa Suarez said “Pet Project is one of many community outreach projects our students have orchestrated this year,” adding “these projects are a part of our Strive 65 program, a school wide effort which teaches character education and citizenship.”
Cherokee Charter’s Beta Club is a service organization for students with grade averages of A and B.
CCA is the county’s first public charter school with an enrollment of 825 students in grades K-7. Open enrollment is underway as the school prepares to add Grade 8 for the 2012-2013 academic year.
