PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Greetings Parents!

This week, our students will be participating in Chester County Walk Walks! During P.E. classes, students will spend some time walking and calculating their steps to support this great cause! The county-wide goal is to reach one billion steps before the end of 2017. We can do it! If you have questions about our activities here at CFE, please contact our P.E. Teacher, Chris Judd. You can register through the flyer and record your own steps as well!

Spirit Wear T-shirt order FINAL NOTICE! If you would like your child to receive a spirit wear T-shirt compliments of our PTO, please be sure to order by Wednesday, September 20.

We are collecting $10 and $20 gift cards to Target and Walmart to support our friends in Houston who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. This is a great opportunity to talk to your child about service to others and guide him or her in being part of a donation. Perhaps that means doing extra chores around the house or donating part of their allowance? Perhaps it means writing a card of encouragement or giving something up that they normally expect to receive? We want our students to experience the value of service and we appreciate the extra efforts to help our friends in Houston!

Finally, the Fall Festival is this Friday! The dunk tank should be a happening place. Come out and support CFE and have a great time! Huge thanks to everyone who is volunteering and supporting the event! 

As always, thank you for your support!

Best regards,
Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFE Principal

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Greetings Parents!

It’s hard to believe that we are starting our third week of school, and our first full week for that matter! As always, things are moving very fast!

As you would expect, the start of a new year includes a great deal of introductory and team-building activities. It is my hope that your child is coming home and sharing the great things that are happening in his or her classroom each day.

From my visits and observations, I am seeing and hearing a lot about grit and perseverance. We spend a good amount of time implementing the growth mindset here at CFE and it’s one of our main goals to build resilience and stamina with our students. Please echo these messages at home, and together we can help students become more comfortable with struggle and failure. 

Speaking of grit, this brief TED Talk from Angela Duckworth is worth a look!

Outside of our climate-building exercises, we are also working on assessing students and establishing baseline data for the school year. Your child may tell you that he or she is “taking a lot of tests.” This is not untrue. As we gather baseline data, our assessments help in the placement process for our RTII Reading groups that are scheduled to begin the week of September 25.

We use both formal and informal assessments throughout each week to monitor and adjust our instruction accordingly. Much of this data will be shared with you as we develop our groups and progress through the first trimester.

As you will read below in PTO News and Notes, we have many exciting things coming up! Fall Festival is next on the list, and we hope you and your family will join us Friday, September 22. I can already hear the Dunk Tank calling my name! 

As always, thank you for your support!

Best regards,
Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFE Principal

PTO NEWS AND NOTES

Hello CFE Parents!

Thanks to all who attended our first PTO meeting of the 2017/2018 school year. We got a lot accomplished, including the approval of our new Co-VP Jessica Lang, approval of our budget for the school year, and, of course, Shawn’s informational update.

  • Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 4 at 9:30 a.m. Please try to attend, as we will be kicking off our enrichment grant process.
  • Fall Festival is almost here! It will be held at the school Friday, September 22 rain or shine. Please send in your registration forms if you are planning to attend; it would be so helpful to have a good idea who is coming so we have enough food and crafts for everyone. There are still several opportunities to sign up and help.
     
  • Our annual Booster Drive going on right now. Please consider making a contribution to the PTO. This is our second biggest fundraiser for the year, and we need your help!
     
  • We still need to fill a few key chair positions for the 2017/2018 school year. The Talent Show and Foreign Language Program are two big PTO-sponsored activities for which we need parent support. Unfortunately, if we do not find anyone to fill these roles, we will not have these events this year. Please reach out to us if you are interested. 

Thank you!
Kara Hyman and Dana Cellucci, PTO Presidents

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Greetings Chargers and Welcome Back once again!

We had a great first week of school! As usual, we are ironing out the beginning-of-the-year wrinkles with arrival and dismissal. Thank you for your patience as we find our groove. If you haven’t seen our first-day video on Twitter and Facebook, please check it out. If you have not visited our Facebook or Twitter pages, I strongly encourage you to follow us. We try to provide our parents and friends with a window into the everyday happenings at CFE.

The start of school is a busy time for everyone. I hope that everyone is settling into routines and your questions are being answered. There is a ton of information included in this first eNews. With the changes to our start time, Mrs. McCloskey and Mrs. Poe created a CFE Office FAQ. Please reference the attached document for questions regarding arrival, dismissal, and attendance procedures.

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. 

ROBOTICS REGISTRATION (CLICK HERE)

RUBE GOLDBERG REGISTRATION (CLICK HERE)

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

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.  

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.

As always, thank you for your support and enjoy the final days of our school year!

Best regards,

Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFES Principal
