PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Greetings Chargers!

It's hard to believe...this is our final eNews for the year!  It's been a great school year and I want to thank you for your tremendous support of our wonderful school!  We all feel very fortunate to serve the Chadds Ford community and as much as summer is a nice break, we will miss your children in our hallways and classrooms every day!  I want to thank our PTO for their amazing efforts!  Winston Churchill once stated, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."  In my opinion, volunteering and working to support our school is a phenomenal way to give back and help us to provide the best experience possible for all of our students. Thank you again to our tremendous PTO board and everyone who volunteered time at CFE this year!

SAVE THE DATE!  Our Sneak-A-Peek and Parent Orientation will once again occur on the same day.  We have made some changes in our logistics to hopefully improve the overall experience.  

The end of a school year is usually exciting and fun, but also bittersweet for some of our students.  This may or may not be true for our 5th grade students who will soon be leaving CFE for middle school.  Most of our 5th grade friends have been here for 6 years and it is always tough to see them leave CFE.  For that reason, we have a few things lined up to make their final weeks extra special.  On June 14th, 5th grade will have a breakfast and yearbook signing, a staff versus 5th grade kickball game, and right before our final dismissal of the year, we will have an all school CLAP OUT for them.  We hope that they have made memories that will last forever.  

Also, our summer STEM Camps are still open for registration (see attached flyer)!  These camps are open to all current 2nd-5th grade students. Check out the links below for more information.

Finally, for those who like to plan ahead and like to avoid shopping, you can order your SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR NEXT YEAR. Click this link for details on how to order all your school supplies for the 2017/2018 school year.  They will be ready for your child's first day of school!!!

Students will have the option of donating any remaining school supplies from this school year to the students at our sister school, Mitchell Elementary, for their upcoming school year.  If you would prefer that your child brings remaining school supplies home with them, please inform the child's teacher or inform your child of your wishes.  Thanks so much for your consideration!

As always, thank you for your support and have a great summer!!!

Best regards,

Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFES Principal

Greetings Chargers!

I want to thank all of our parent volunteers who supported Field Day last week!  We were so fortunate to have beautiful weather.  As always, the kids seemed to have a blast!

This Thursday, June 8th we will have our Annual Awards Ceremony where we will recognize Perfect AttendanceGood Citizenship, and Resilience. If your child will receive the Citizenship Award or the Resilience Award, your child's teacher will contact you to make you aware and invite you to the ceremony.   Due to the numerous Perfect Attendance Award recipients, we are not informing parents if their child will receive this award.  If you are unsure of your child's attendance, you are welcome to contact our office to check his/her record.  

Also on Thursday, June 8th, we will have our First in Math Celebration to recognize our students for their efforts this year and to see if we achieved our 1,250,000 Sticker Challenge as a school!  Exciting stuff!  Based on the number of stickers each student earned, they will receive a certificate to recognize their efforts.  Certainly there will be many other classroom and grade-specific end of year events and celebrations.  

The end of a school year is usually exciting and fun, but also bittersweet for some of our students.  This may or may not be true for our 5th grade students who will soon be leaving CFE for middle school.  Most of our 5th grade friends have been here for 6 years and it is always tough to see them leave CFE.  For that reason, we have a few things lined up to make their final weeks extra special.  On June 14th, 5th grade will have a breakfast and yearbook signing, a staff versus 5th grade kickball game, and right before our final dismissal of the year, we will have an all school CLAP OUT for them.  We hope that they have made memories that will last forever.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Greetings Chargers!

I want to thank everyone who was able to participate in last week's Spring Open House.  I hope that you enjoyed seeing your child's work in their classroom and the beautiful art work in our hallways.  I also hope that you had a chance to engage in some of the Makerspace activities and STEM projects in our gymnasium.  

We are looking forward to this Friday's 68th Annual May Fair event!  We are hoping for nice weather and are preparing for a great event.  Below are some friendly reminders.   

68th Annual May Fair 2017:

  • Each grade will perform a song. 3rd Graders perform the Traditional May Pole Dance and Parachute Party
  • The performances begin at 2:00 pm on the playground behind the school. Please DO NOT enter the front doors of the school.  Walk around the back of the school.  A space will be provided for parents. 
  • Please bring your own lawn chairs!  Chairs will be limited so please bring one of your own. 
  • Students should wear their CFE Spirit Wear to school on this day.  Since we will be outside, sunscreen is also recommended for all students!                                                                                                                                               
  • Students will travel home on the buses.  If you plan to attend the event and would like to take your child home with you, a parent or guardian will need to sign the student out in his or her classroom.  A note is not necessary, but we do ask that only one parent enter the school to minimize the number of adults in the building.  This year we are working to manage the traffic at the conclusion of the fair to make the dismissal process more efficient.

We have officially reached 20 school days remaining!  The final few weeks will be full of special events, class trips, and end-of-year celebrations.  Next Thursday, May 25th is our Spring 4th-5th Grade Concert and parents are welcome to attend at 1:45 pm.  The concert will be LIVE STREAMED on our You Tube Channel.  A reminder email and link will be sent out next week.   Our students are busy preparing and practicing for their final performance of the year!  We hope you can attend or watch from home!

Finally, Field Day is coming up on Thurs. June 1st.  As always, we are in need of parent volunteers.  Please click here to sign up to help out: https://docs.google.com/a/ucfsd.net/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfIdIX5QJ0Q9MdvozNlNMXlhwe-qrcmM3htpesiQTwePsz3bw/viewform

As always, thank you for your support!

Best Regards,

Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFE Principal
