The donation will go toward the school’s Music Therapy program. Music therapy is provided by a private licensed music therapist, Lucille Brown from Sound Inspirations. Weekly sessions address the development of cognitive, behavioral, physical, emotional, and social skills of students with special needs. Students are engaged during therapy sessions by interacting with instruments, singing, songwriting, movement, and therapeutic listening.
Chardon Boy Scout Jason Tysl Presents to Chardon BOE
At the January 23, 2017 meeting of the Chardon School Board, CHS junior Jason Tysl, presented information on his Eagle Scout project, a proposed chimney swift tower on the grounds of Chardon High School. The tower will be erected close to where a chimney was demolished this past year. Chimney swifts eat many insects including mosquitoes, and annually migrate between their summer and winter homes. When the chimney swift lands, it can’t perch—it clings to vertical walls inside chimneys or in hollow trees or caves. This species has suffered sharp declines as chimneys fall into disuse across the continent, so Jason wants the Chardon chimney swifts to have a new home when they come looking for the Chardon High School chimney.
