Nov. 13-21 Weekly Snapshot

This week's snapshot will cover through Thanksgiving Break! Our next snapshot will be delivered on Nov. 26.

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our Veterans Day Programs last week. Our resource team and students did a remarkable job recognizing and honoring our heroes. I'd also like to thank our students, teachers, and parents for attending conferences last week. Our students in grades 3-5 did an amazing job of leading their own conferences this year. 

Throughout the week, I will be writing each staff member at CHES to let them know how thankful I am for their dedication to our students (including bus drivers, custodians, aides, teachers, office staff, etc.). I have attached a copy of the cards I will be writing to teachers. If you would like to thank a staff member, please use the cards attached. There is no better way to show appreciation than a heartfelt note. Students are also encouraged to write on the cards as well. My plan is to distribute cards to teachers and staff this Friday, Nov. 17. If you or your child writes a note(s), please place it in an envelope or drop it off in the front office by Thursday. Write as many as you wish! If you would like to submit a card digitally, please use this link. I will take care of having it printed on a card.

Here's what's happening this week and next week at CHES:
  • Our Dreambox Challenge continues this week. Each student who completes 30 lessons during the Dreambox Challenge Window (Oct. 30-Nov. 17) will receive a Dreambox tag for their leadership lanyard. The class with the most lessons earns a pizza party. If we reach our goal of 15,000 lessons, the school earns a pajama day on Tuesday, Nov. 21. As of Friday night, we have already completed 12,000 lessons!
  • Monday (11/13) Golf meets after school.
  • Tuesday (11/14) Girls on the Run and Art Club Meet after school. PTA meeting at 6:30 PM.
  • Wednesday (11/15) Tennis meets after school
  • Thursday (11/16) Girls on the Run and Mad Science meet after school; Literacy Night has been postponed
  • Friday (11/17): Report cards go home. Be sure to check the back of your child's report card to see if he/she will receive an award at our awards assembly next week.
  • Monday (11/20): 4th grade career chat
  • Tuesday (11/21): 5th grade career chats; Awards assemblies: 3rd @ 9:45, 4th @ 1:30, and 5th @ 8:45. Girls on the Run and Art Club meet after school.
Upcoming Dates:
  • Nov. 28: Family Night Out
  • Dec. 2: Holiday House
  • Dec. 5: Picture Retakes
  • Dec. 7: 2nd Grade Performance
  • After Thanksgiving break, I will start collecting items for teacher prizes during our 12 Days Until Winter Break countdown. Prizes can include gift cards, candy, and small treats or supplies. 
I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving Break. One of the things I am most thankful for is coming to work and serving as Principal of Clover Hill Elementary! 

Thank you for all of your support!
