Walton Chorus Donates Four Boxes of Clothing, School Supplies, Toys, and Books to Kids in Rurii, Kenya

A big thank you to our students and parents for so generously supporting kids in Rurii, Kenya. We filled four boxes of clothing, school supplies, toys, and books. You also donated the funds to ship them to Kenya! Because of your efforts, hundreds of children and teenagers will be able to learn.

We are always proud of our students as musicians and as leaders, and we are especially proud to see them growing into young people who will change the world for the better.

Mr. Karuga was so moved by your generosity. Following is a video of Mr. Karuga thanking the students.

  • The deadline for student applications for performing, modeling, backstage crew or working the day of the event is Friday, December 7.
  • Students who will be playing spring sports will only be able to volunteer for the day of the show activities. (Please note that rehearsals begin before many tryouts and students may not sign up for the Fashion Show “in case” they don’t make a team.)
  •  Lettering points will be given for different levels of participation in the show.
  • Auditions for those who want to perform will be held after school on Wednesday, January 9.
  • Students may also earn lettering points by donating to the Silent Auction.
