UCFSD Coat Drive

The UCFSD Coat Drive has provided nearly 500 area families with jackets, coats, and hoodies each year for the past 10 years. The success of the drive depends solely on the generosity of the UCFSD community. Volunteers are needed to help UHS students transport, prepare, and distribute coats on December 14 and 15. There are several time slots — some for as few as two hours — for which volunteers are needed. High school students (volunteers must be 14 or older) receive community service hours. Please consider donating your time to help your neighbors. Contact Mary Walter and Maria Tayoun with questions.

Remember to check the UCF Community Bulletin Board for other community-wide activities and resources that benefit our students, including fundraisers, extra-curricular activities, and camps.

The PTO’s weekly eNews is distributed on Tuesdays. Please submit any information to be included by Friday of the previous week to: CFESPTO@ucfsd.net.

Greetings Chargers,

This week is Computer Science Education Week, also known as the Hour of Code. Mr. Hirt and other staff will assuredly engage our students in coding activities all week. Ask your child about what he/she is doing and learning in the world of coding!

Chadds Ford is fortunate to have so many talented community members!

Steven Miller, grandfather of several CFE students, recently offered his services to update the black and white photography wall in the school foyer.

After nearly 10 years, the photographs no longer captured our current population or updated features.

In addition to being a really great person, Mr. Miller is an award-winning photographer who has been part of CFE’s Annual Art Show and Sale for many years. Mr. Miller’s idea to bring new life to our wall and capture our current population was easy to support!

Special thanks to our Office Manager, Mrs. McCloskey, and Head Custodian, Mr. Ellis, who were instrumental in working with Mr. Miller to frame, organize, and hang the new photographs on the wall.

Next time you visit CFE, be sure to stop and take in the amazing new photographs of our students and staff.

For more information about Mr. Miller, please reference the Photographer's Forum, where he was recently highlighted.

The cost of this project was made possible through a very generous donation by the Miller family to our PTO. We cannot thank the Miller family enough for their vision, efforts, and support!

Another highly talented artist at CFE, Mrs. Silke Hansen, has been involved in a number of current and future beautification projects. Mrs. Hansen recently painted the Geometric Focus wall in our new Tech Lab, and just last week she finished the Growth Mindset mural outside the cafeteria. More projects are in the planning stages. Great job Mrs. Hansen!

Safety Alert: Pennsylvania’s School Bus Stopping Law

Each year, drivers illegally pass school buses nearly two million times. Each illegal pass-by could result in a tragic injury or fatality of a student. The inconvenience of an extra few seconds spent waiting for a stopped school bus is insignificant compared to the loss of a child's life.

UCFSD would like to remind our drivers of the laws and safe practices to take when approaching a school bus:

  • When you meet or overtake a stopped school bus with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended, you MUST STOP.
  • When you approach an intersection where a school bus is stopped with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended, you MUST STOP.
  • You MUST STOP at least 10 feet away from the school bus.
  • You MUST WAIT until the red lights have stopped flashing and the stop arm has been withdrawn before moving.
  • DO NOT MOVE until all the children have reached a place of safety.

For more information on Pennsylvania's School Bus Stopping Law, including an animated graphic demonstrating when you must stop, visit www.penndot.gov/safety.

Greetings Chargers!

Well the weather last week certainly threw us a curve ball! Unexpected early dismissals can be extremely hectic and we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we navigated the bus delays and challenges. As usual, the CFE staff were “all hands on deck” and aside from some longer delays in bus departures, all worked out pretty well.

This week will hopefully bring a sense of relief. Of course, this week is about celebrating family and friends and showing how fortunate and thankful we are to work and live in such a tremendous community. 

On that note, I want to thank our amazing Parent-Teacher Organization for their tremendous efforts. Last week, a number of grants were approved by the PTO board and general assembly. From flexible seating options for our students, practice drum sets for our band musicians, STEM materials for classroom centers, and more, we are incredibly thankful! PTO grants greatly support our focus on innovative practices and meeting our students’ needs.

If you are thankful for one of our fine teachers, please consider nominating him/her for the annual Citadel Heart of Learning Award. Citadel offers our community an opportunity to recognize the work and efforts of one of our wonderful teachers. Please consider taking the time to nominate a teacher at CFE.

Just a friendly reminder that we are operating on a half-day schedule today and tomorrow. School will be dismissed at 12:25 p.m. There will be no school Thursday or Friday.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone and as always, thank you for your support!

Best regards,
Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFE Principal

Hello Charger Families!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Not Your Average Joe’s fundraiser last week. Next up is Chipotle! Plan to skip the cooking and support CFE December 12.

We also wanted to share that more than 430 children were fed for a year as a result of CFE’s partnership with School Tool Box and Feed My Starving Children. We received this certificate of appreciation for our contributions.

  • We have begun our search for business advertising sponsors for the show. If you or someone you know has a local business that would like to support our school while gaining visibility with show patrons, please contact Jessica Lang (610) 310-1323.

Our annual Halloween Parade was a ton of fun! Mr. Hirt used our drone and put together a cool little video of our parade! Check it out!

Finally, just a friendly reminder that we are closed Wednesday, November 7 in observance of Diwali. Our teachers will be engaged in a professional development workshop for the day.

Election Day Security Information

Our Enchanted Forest Book Fair was a great success last week! Huge thanks and kudos to PTO chair members Kara Hyman and Brett Clancy, and all of the parents who helped set up and facilitate the fair.

As many of you know, our Book Fair culminated Friday with our annual Buddy Breakfast. The scope of planning, setting up, and facilitating the Buddy Breakfast is always an arduous task, and I want to thank PTO chair members Meredith Petruccelli and Rebecca Haley, and all of the parent volunteers who made our family gathering possible.

I also want to recognize our fantastic custodians, Mr. Ellis and Mr. Jones, and Mrs. McCloskey and Mrs. Poe in the office for all of their efforts and support.

Halloween is tomorrow, October 31! Our annual Halloween Parade will take place at 10:15 a.m. outside along the front driveway of the school. Parents, for security reasons, please be advised that no one should enter the building before or after the parade unless you are volunteering for one of the classroom celebrations. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our building safe and secure.

We will be collecting unwanted and unopened Halloween candy from November 1 through November 7 in the CFE foyer for Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude sends care packages to deployed troops, veterans, new recruits, first responders, and wounded heroes.

Once again, we were amazed at how wonderfully our school community came together for Buddy Breakfast Friday. We echo Mr. Dutkiewicz’s expression of gratitude to everyone involved in making this event the huge success it was. We are also grateful to Mr. Dutkiewicz for his continued support!

Last week’s Book Fair was a success as well. Your Coin Challenge donations enabled us to purchase many books for our sister school, Mitchell Elementary. The fair also allowed us to add numerous books to our own library and many of our teachers' classrooms. Again, we are so thankful to all who helped contribute to this successful event. Special thanks to our librarian Ms. Price, who so obligingly shared the library space with the PTO all week!

Have a wonderful week and Happy Halloween!
