Weekly Snapshot Week of 5/7/18-5/11/18

Thank you to everyone who attended our Awards Assemblies and Literacy Night last week. This week we are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. You should have received emails from your grade level coordinator or room parent.

On May 9, we are joining in on the National Bike and Walk to school Day.  If your child normally walks or rides their bike to school we are excited to celebrate with them. Walking and bicycling to school enables children to incorporate the regular physical activity they need each day while also forming healthy habits that can last a lifetime. Regular physical activity helps children build strong bones, muscles and joints, and it decreases the risk of obesity. In contrast, insufficient physical activity can contribute to chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke. If your child normally rides the bus or you drop off, you have the opportunity to drop them off a Woodlake Swim and Racquet at 8:00 AM.  From this destination we will walk with volunteers and staff to school. Register your child by clicking this link if you would like for him/her to join us.  There is also a place for you to volunteer on this day to make sure all kids arrive safely.

The next Family Night Out is May 17th from 6:30-8:30 at Skate-A-Way. Admission is $5 and skate rental is $3.  As an incentive, the class with the most students to attend will receive a pizza party.

CHES raised a total of $2255.28 during the Pennies for Patients campaign for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! Congratulations to Mrs. Rymer's class for raising the most money and earning a pizza party! Every class did such a wonderful job. Thank you all so much for your support! 

Spring picture money is due.  Please send payment or return packets.

If you are interested in registering your child for the YMCA after school program at CHES next year, please click this link. If you register by the end of the day on Sunday, you're first week is free if you email jongleuxd@ymcarichmond.org

We have some fabulous student leaders who have put together their own group called the "Green and Clean Team." This Saturday, May 12, they have organized a clean-up event at Sunday Park from 10 AM - 1 PM. Click here to see the flier they created and learn more information. You can also view their video here.

Reminder: Last year, you might remember taking the time to complete a Parent Survey about The Leader in Me. Well, it's that time of year again and we really need your help. Please take a view minutes to complete the survey by clicking this link. You have no idea how much we appreciate your support and help with this. The results of the survey help us to plan our school goals and next steps.

Reminder: In case you missed last week's snapshot, I shared two important links. One was asking you to complete a brief online form to let us know your intent for next school year as well as provide a chance for you to provide information about your child's placement for next year. The other link was a chance for you to Thank a Teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week. Both links are below:
