The Delia School Enhancement Society (DSES) was pleased to accept two generous donations towards the Make Your Mark fundraising campaign from Delia School students this past month. The Delia Junior High Students donated over $2500 to the new Delia School and Community Hub project, all raised at the annual Christmas Extravaganza.
For the 2018 event, junior high students chose specific projects which interested them that would strengthen their CTS skills. With everything from acting and costume design to woodworking and event planning. Junior high students had the chance to share their talents with the community on December 13. Final products were auctioned off at the end of the evening, with attendees taking home everything from handcrafted birdhouses and step stools to beach chairs for the summer months. New for 2018 was a “Hire a Student” auction – a hit for everyone involved.
The Delia School volleyball team also made their mark in December by donating all proceeds from their tournament concession to the DSES Make Your Mark campaign, contributing over $445 to the new Delia School and Community Hub.
“Once elementary school ends, many students can experience challenges accessing fine-arts programming like music, drama, and theatre. The Christmas Extravaganza was created to give these students the chance to share their talents in these essential areas while continuing to develop new skills.
