Student Expo/Ice Cream Social


Stay tuned for more information on NEXT YEAR'S STUDENT EXPO 

(2019 Expo will not be running)

The annual Student Expo has long been a CHARIS favorite, and not just because it ends with an ice cream social!* Kids enjoy displaying projects they've poured their time and effort into and admiring those of other students, and we've even enjoyed musical and dance performances and live animals (crated/caged, of course).

The Expo also gives our budding entrepreneurs a chance to promote their businesses and sell their goods to each other, friends, family and neighbors. Students can sell any number of handmade creations such as baked goods, jewelry, art, crafts, bookmarks, plants—the sky is the limit.

Older students who offer services such as lawn care or childcare are welcome to set up a booth advertising their company to the local community. This event is for homeschooling kids of all ages. Even the youngest student can simply bake cookies and practice making change while earning a few dollars.

*Please bring an ice cream topping to share. CHARIS will provide the ice cream!
