  • CCHS students bring Christmas fun to Headstart CCHS students bring Christmas fun to Headstart

    Students from Chester County High School FCCLA and FBLA organizations visited Headstart last week to bring Christmas cheer to the children. The high schoolers caroled, helped with crafts, set up a Christmas store where Headstart students could "purchase" gifts for two family members and they even brought Santa Claus along to visit the youngsters.
    Jill Irwin and Harvette Croom are the CCHS faculty in charge of FCCLA and FBLA, and they established the tradition of visiting the Headstart classrooms almost a decade ago. The Christmas program has grown exponentially since it began, but it still gives the high schoolers a chance to bring Christmas joy to some of the youngest students in Chester County.
