For our Chesnut Challenge this year, we're using an awesome web based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It's fun, it's easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don't!


Remember, our Chesnut Challenge is October 17th-October 30th, so please register now to help our school raise as much as we can for programs and materials that further enrich our experience at Chesnut!
