Reaching out with over 2,000 hours of meaningful work that makes a difference in our community while raising money for our school.


What Is Work-A-Thon?

Work-a-Thon is an annual event in November in which CVCS students and faculty work in our community with a mission to bless others while also raising funds for our school.  During the week of November 18-22, our students and staff will work in local non-profit organizations, churches, assist local neighbors, and work on projects within our school.  Elementary students will contribute 2 hours of work and Secondary students will contribute 3 hours of work.

Work-a-Thon supports our mission by giving our students the opportunity to meet needs of those outside the walls of our school.  It builds their awareness of how to be a blessing in our local community as they are exposed to different opportunities and ways of helping.  And as a result, Work-a-Thon gives Cole Valley Christian Schools the opportunity to create goodwill with these organizations, our town and our neighbors.
