68TH ART SHOW AND SALE IS 3 DAYS AWAY!!!!!!

Not sure if you've heard, but the 68th ANNUAL ART SHOW AND SALE is happening THIS WEEKEND - Friday and Saturday! :)  We still have many ways to volunteer. Please remember that we only need a couple hours of your time - all the money we raise this weekend goes to technology, assemblies, and other educational activities that directly impact our children.  So what can you do to help?

1. DONATE A DESSERT FOR THE FRIDAY NIGHT SHOW.  

Each year hundreds of people from our community and far beyond come to CFE to enjoy two days of incredible art.....but they also enjoy some DELICIOUS FOOD!  This year we have some fantastic food from our local restaurants, but the dessert table would not be possible without donations from CFE parents.  Help us fill all of our spots!!

Please Donate Individually Portioned Desserts:

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Greetings Chargers!

I want to congratulate our 5th graders who performed their Oldies Dance skits on Friday evening!  They did such a great job!  

I also want to congratulate our 5th grade team who competed at the Chester County Intermediate Unit STEM Competition on Friday.  Out of twenty 4th-5th grade teams, CFE finished in 3rd place!  This was only our third year competing and we've learned so much about the process.  Congratulations to our 5th grade team, Michael Ta, Jack Hyman, Rohan Kapoor, and Ethan Lee and our AT Teacher, Mrs. Gehris on a great job!

I want to thank our PTO and the CFES Community for approving all of the grant requests that were submitted and voted on last week.  The grants will fund so many wonderful things!  The PTO funds will support the creation of a safer and more comfortable student-experience in our gaga pit, filtered water bottle-filling stations at three locations in the school, an author visit and workshop with our students, Dash and Dot robots and coding for our computer class and Makerspace, new sound equipment for our band, orchestra, and assembly programs, and new tables for our AT room that will foster student collaboration and teamwork.   Truly amazing stuff...and we are so appreciative! 

From the Makerspace Mingle, PTO grants, and through the donations of supplies and materials, the CFE community has been tremendously supportive of the implementation of our CFE Makerspace.  Believe it or not, we are currently at the mid-year mark of our second year of implementation.  With your support, we are much further along in our process than we expected and we are learning so much along the way.  Our implementation plan has included curriculum work to support our teachers in facilitating STEM instruction throughout the building, not only when visiting the Makerspace.  A great deal of funds have been spent on mobilizing our equipment and resources so they can used as tools throughout the school.  Although you may not always hear about your child "going to the Makerspace", we are heavily invested in STEM instruction and using the same resources in our classrooms.  As we continue to learn and grow, I am confident that you will hear much more about how the Makerspace implementation is influencing our pedagogy and educational philosophies and transcending all disciplines and levels of CFE.  

March Conferences Reminder: A conference sign-up email was sent last Friday and a letter was also sent home via backpack express.  Please be sure to schedule a conference with your child's teacher. To register and choose a conference time, enter this link into your internet browser: https://www.ptcfast.com/schools/Chadds_Ford_Elementary_School. Let us know if you have any questions!

Finally, please be sure to SAVE the DATES...our 68th Annual Art Show and Sale is coming up...Friday, March 24th and Saturday, March 25th!  Please consider volunteering some time to support this tremendous annual CFES tradition!

As always, thank you for your support!

Best Regards,

Mr. Shawn Dutkiewicz
