STAR Initiative

The Staff, Teacher Appreciation and Recognition Initiative

During these challenging times, is there a current or former CH-CH teacher or staff member that you would like to honor? Did someone make a positive impact on your life? Show your thanks today by honoring these educators with a very special STAR gift!

The CH-CH STAR (Staff, Teacher, Appreciation and Recognition) Initiative enables CH-CH community members to thank our teachers and staff (current or former) for their efforts, time and commitment (especially during these challenging times). Everyone likes to be thanked and recognized; the STAR Initiative gives you an opportunity to send thanks and support CH-CH at the same time.

Please take a moment to reflect on this or a previous year, and send a message of appreciation to the faculty or staff member(s) of your choosing. In the "Leave a comment (optional)" field below compose your message, let us know the teacher's name, make your gift, and you're done!

All teachers who are recognized will receive a special STAR certificate from YOU that shows your support and appreciation for them.

Thank you so much for recognizing and thanking our faculty, staff and all the other STARs out there!

Please contact Ben Rogers, Director of the Annual Fund at with any questions.

Instructions on how to give: In the "Comment" section below, list the community member this is in honor of, and write your message that will be delivered to them.
