Chagrin Falls Middle School Planned Special Event For Last Day Of School

The last day of Chagrin Falls Middle School was May 27 and the students planned a special event to conclude the school year. Students and staff came together to organize a school-wide campaign through Kick-It to raise money for children’s cancer research. Kick-It is a program of Flashes of Hope, a national volunteer driven effort that was founded in Chagrin Falls by student Quinn Clarke during his second battle with cancer. Quinn asked his parents if he could have a kickball game to raise money for research and was shocked when more than 500 people came out to support him. Chagrin Falls Schools has supported Kick-It through a number of activities throughout the years, raising thousands of dollars. Quinn is currently a sophomore at Chagrin Falls High School. He had cancer when he was an elementary student. He is no longer undergoing cancer treatments.

The championship kickball game began at 12:45pm at Harris Stadium on the 7-12 campus of Chagrin Falls Middle/High School. There also was a head shaving for any student that had a permission slip and donated $100 for a full head shave and $50 for partial. There were two Chagrin Falls residents who are stylists who volunteered their time to shave the heads at halftime during the game. At 1:45pm, there was a secret all-school surprise on the football field where the school’s drone captured the moment of the whole school doing the cha-cha slide dance.
