Siler City, NC - The teachers at Chatham Middle School are coming together and working hard to raise money for a few worthy causes. Starting the week of March 9, teachers began donating two dollars a week in order to wear jeans on Fridays. The two-dollar “Denim Donations” will be going toward Chatham Middle’s Relay for Life team.

The Relay for Life team is comprised of members of the Chatham Middle faculty. They are working together to raise money through donations being made at school as well as from the community. Students are starting to donate as well. Starting on Monday, March 30, there will be three jars set up in the school’s cafeteria for a coin race, one jar for each grade level. Each grade level’s jar will have a picture of a male teacher or administrator who have graciously volunteered to be part of the incentive. The winning grade level gets the privilege of ice cream at lunch along with having their grade’s male “volunteer” dress up in a special costume for an entire day.

On the night of Relay for Life they plan to have face painting, sell juice, water, and snacks, as well as have teachers volunteer to take “Pies in the Face” with all of the proceeds supporting the American Cancer Society. The event will take place at Jordan Matthews High School on May 1-2.

After Relay for Life the “Denim Donations” will be made to Operation Smile, a children’s charity that treats facial deformities, such as cleft lips and cleft palates, all around the world.
