Announcing: Bright Futures Fund

Bright Futures Fund

Since we opened our school in a Suttons Bay farmhouse in 1984, we have partnered with families to sustain and grow a vibrant learning community. From our humble beginning to now, we have always aspired to create bright futures, not only for our own students - but through our students, as they grow into adults and take their place in our community and our world.

 You can be part of the vitality of our school by making a gift to our new Bright Futures Fund. Gifts of all sizes from every family are appreciated and needed. Every gift counts. Make yours today

Other Notes:

Family Fun Challenges
We are all hopeful for a more normal time when we can gather and get to know all of the members of our school community better. But until we can do that safely, CHiPA is proposing some Family Fun Challenges that we can share on The Children’s House Community Facebook page.  

Family Fun Challenge: explore a beach and hunt for special rocks! Be sure to share your location and photos on the TCH Community Facebook page.
