Mid Summer Update

Dear CHES families,

We hope you are enjoying your summer so far! Things have been hopping here at Clover Hill. We have enjoyed having Swift Creek and Wooldridge Elementary combine with us for summer school this year. Things were way too quiet without students and teachers at the beginning of summer, so hosting summer school was a definite pleasure!  

It’s hard to believe that August is right around the corner. If you’ve walked into any store lately you’ve probably had some mixed emotions about seeing all the school supplies! Some of us are excited about school starting, some of us might feel nervous, and some of us aren’t QUITE ready to wrap up summer vacation yet. For me, it’s a sign that I can start communicating important information and slowly begin to shift your mind from “summer mode” to “school mode.”

I can’t think of a better way to ease back into “school mode” than to invite you to join us tonight Wednesday, July 26th at the Clover Hill PUBLIC LIBRARY from 5-8:00 PM for book checkout, reading with PAWS to READ, a scavenger hunt, and the Sweet Frog truck!

If you can’t make it tonight, consider joining us tomorrow, Thursday, July 27th from 1-4 PM at CHES in the library! Come on by to read, check out books, access computers, play games, and have some “cool” fun during the summer heat!

Now looking ahead into next school year...We are getting so excited to welcome our students back!  Here are some important dates and times to remember:

  • Tuesday, August 29-Teacher Assignments will come via phone message and email to parents by 3 PM. If you don’t receive your call by 3 PM, please call the school.

  • Thursday, August 31-Kindergarten Orientation and Back To School Nights

    • Kindergarten Orientation is at 9 AM and will begin in the cafeteria.

      • Parents will learn all they need to know about kindergarten and students meet their teacher, visit their classroom, and take a tour of CHES. Don’t forget to bring your child’s supplies or pick up your pre-ordered supply box.

    • Back to School Night for Grades 3, 4, 5 @ 5 PM; Grades 1 & 2 @ 6:30 PM.

      • Only parents are invited to this event. Parents will gather in the cafeteria and then meet the teacher to learn important information for the upcoming school year.

  • Friday, September 1-New Student Orientation; Meet & Greet/Supply Drop Off

    • New Student Orientation (Gr-1-5) @ 9 AM

      • This event is for parents and 1st-5th graders who are new to CHES and begins in the cafeteria. Student Leaders from the Hospitality Cabinet will take new students and parents on a tour of the building and show them the ropes!

    • Meet & Greet for Gr. 1st & 2nd @ 10 AM; Gr. 3-5 @ 11:30 AM

      • Students are invited to meet the teacher and drop off school supplies. There is no need to check into the front office for this event. Once you receive your phone call on Tuesday you will receive a teacher name and room number. Greeters will be available in the lobby to help direct you.

Finally, while cleaning out drawers and closets this summer, don't forget to put aside denim for the Denim Drive. Our goal is to maintain our 1st Place title we earned last year! Feel free to bring your denim to any of the events mentioned above. Also, don’t forget you can support our school by placing recycled clothing and shoes in the white box in the driveway of the school.

We truly hope you are having a safe, fun, and relaxing summer filled with time to make memories and recuperate! We look forward to a very exciting school year at CHES!  


Mrs. Strollo, Principal and Ms. Carle, Assistant Principal
