Students at Chapin High showed the true meaning at the school’s annual Winter Giving Assembly.  

The event saw students and the community raise $20,000  for the Screaming Eagles. In the past the school has raised more than $200,000 toward the Screaming Eagles Special Needs Athletics Field of Dreams.  

Members of the Baseball, softball and soccer teams have all volunteered with the Screaming Eagles, said Gio Macaluso, President of the SGA. Initially Chapin High helped raise $112,00 for the Field of Dreams Project. Since the initial gift two years ago, the school and the community have raised another $100,000 and the Winter Giving donations added another $20,000.

“This means so much to us. These kids mean so much to us. We are so grateful that Chapin has supported the screaming eagles for the last 2 years,” said Michelle Edenfield, member of the board of directors of the Screaming Eagles during the check presentation.

In addition to monetary donations to the Screaming Eagles, Chapin’s homerooms brought in hand sanitizer, snack crackers, shampoo and other items for donation to Support Our Troops for military servicemen and women. A highlight of the program was a video “thank you”presentation from troops that that included several former Chapin students serving in various branches of the military from all over the world.  (Click here to see the video)

The Winter Giving assembly then continued with performances from the Voice of Chapin, the Chapin Orchestra, and the Band. The Drama Department featured a dramatic staging of  The Night Before Christmas.  The Drama Department was joined by members of the Chapin Band Percussion Section to highlight the dramatic interpretation of the story.

Mr. Michael Ames, Principal of Chapin High thanked everyone for what they do for giving back to the community. “We are blessed to be here and blessed to be in the Chapin community,” said Mr. Ames.
