This is a reminder that all students should be at the CHS gym by 6:15 tonight.  I will be there to help direct students into their correct seating positions.  Please make sure that your child finds me in the gym when you get there so that we can get started on time, at 6:30.  Can't wait to see you all!

Take a peek at the work we have been doing the past week in the classroom...

 Here we are working in a small reading group to create individual posters that represent our learning.  Students were amazed to see how there was not one poster like another.  Each child had a unique way to share their learning of caterpillars from the reading group book Amazing Caterpillars.

It was a beautiful beginning of our week.  We loved having the opportunity to read outside with a partner.  As you can see from our pictures, students were remembering our motto "hip to hip, knee to knee, hold the book so both can see!"

  • Students should wear clothes that they would feel comfortable wearing to PE. This means sneakers and either pants or shorts. Each student should also bring a water bottle and a sweatshirt.  We would like to be outside as often as possible but will still hold practice indoors if it rains. At the first practice, students will be assigned to specific classrooms and can be picked up at this room each week.
  • The program costs $35 and includes a lot! Participants receive a t-shirt, medal, finisher’s certificate and other cool handouts.  There are many scholarships available for this program. Please email for information regarding a scholarship.
