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 us all. 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 also want to thank our PTO for their amazing efforts. Thanks again to our tremendous PTO board, and to everyone who volunteered time at CFE this year.

Save the Date! Please mark Thursday, August 23rd on your calendars for our 2018-2019 Parent Orientation and Sneak-a-Peek Event.

The end of a school year is usually exciting and fun, but it is also bittersweet for some of our students. This may or may not be true for our 5th graders, who will soon be leaving CFE for middle school. Most of our 5th grade friends have been here for six 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 week extra special. On June 14th, the 5th grade will have a breakfast and yearbook signing, a staff vs. 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 they have made memories that will last forever!

Finally, for those who like to plan ahead and/or avoid shopping, you still have time to order your school supplies for the 2018-2019 school year online. Orders can be placed until Friday, June 15th, and they will be ready for your child’s first day of school.

Students have the option of donating any remaining school supplies from this school year to the students at our sister school, Mitchell Elementary. If you would prefer that your child bring remaining school supplies home, please inform your child or his or her teacher 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, CFE Principal

Wow! We can’t believe the 2017-2018 school year is coming to an end! We have had a wonderful year here at CFE and we couldn't have done it without the help of our tremendous PTO board and parent volunteers. Thank you!

Everyone who ordered a yearbook will receive it this week. Big thanks to Karen Pollack for creating the yearbook this year – it looks great!

If you are at school this week, take a look at the hallway by the gym. This year’s 5th grade leave-behind project is a mural and it looks amazing! A big shout out to Michelle Modesto, Modesto Bigas-Valedon, and Silke Hansen for their amazing work leading this project. It definitely brightens up the hallway!

We also want to give our 5th grade students a big shout out: You did it! Middle school here you come! We know you will all have continued success as you carry on your academic careers.

Special thanks to Kristen Goodman and Eleni Karakasidis, along with our 5th grade teachers, for planning the 5th grade breakfast.

Thanks also to Betty Kucharczuk for running the school store for about the last 10 years! You did a wonderful job and we have big shoes to fill!

Finally, we will miss all the families that are leaving our school this year as their children move on from CFE. Thank you for all you have done during your time with us!

We hope everyone has a fun, relaxing summer filled with many laughs and good times spent with family and friends. See you in August!

Kara Hyman and Dana Cellucci, PTO Presidents

Greetings Chargers!

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! 

It's our busiest time of year here at CFES! Last week, our Band, Orchestra, and Chorus put on a tremendous Spring Concert! In my humble opinion, one of the best in the last several years! Check it out if you missed the show.

Huge kudos to our directors, Mr. Miller, Mrs. Eichmann, and our guest music teacher, Mrs. Bourdreau! Although he has not officially returned to CFE, Mr. Zumpetta made a surprise visit to watch the concert and greet our staff and students. It was so great to see him, and he is recovering very well!

Our Reading Olympics Teams brought home three blue ribbons at the Chester County event! Tremendous job to our kids and our R.O. teacher leaders: Mrs. Carson, Mrs. Straub, Mrs. Hughes, Mr. Barr, Mr. Sciecinski, and Ms. Price!

We also welcomed back our UHS Seniors last week for our annual Senior Stroll. The soon-to-be graduates paraded through our hallways to the fanfare of students and staff, took a picture with Chadd on the stage, visited classrooms to answer questions, and enjoyed light refreshments with their previous teachers in the cafeteria. Check out the pictures on our Facebook page.

Congratulations to the UHS Class of 2018!

The year is coming in for a landing and it’s another busy week at CFE. Field Day is coming up on Thursday, May 31st (rain date Friday, June 1st). As always, we are in need of parent volunteers. Please contact Mr. Judd with any questions.

I also hope you had a chance to engage in some of the Makerspace activities and the Cardboard Amazement Park in the gym. The Cardboard Challenge far surpassed what we hoped it would be! Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the event and supported a great evening!

We have officially reached 16 school days remaining! The final few weeks will be full of special events, class trips, and end-of-year celebrations.

Greetings Chargers!

We were so fortunate to have beautiful weather Friday for our 69th Annual May Fair! The students did a tremendous job and once again, I want to thank everyone for coming out and enjoying the day with us.

Special thanks to the wonderful parent volunteers who prepared our students for the traditional dance: Dana Cellucci, Brett Clancy, Megan Davis, Rebecca Haley, Leigh Heister, and Alexandra Albrecht. It was a great day!

Please check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for pictures and a video.

Today is Election Day and CFE is a voting location. Since school is in session, we organize voting to take place at the end of the K-2 hallway. Kindergarten moves to another classroom for the day, and we use a vacant classroom for voting. We create a barrier and have security on duty throughout the day to ensure the safety of our students. Please contact our office at 610.388.1112 x3700 with any questions.

Spring Open House is Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. We look forward to welcoming everyone to back to CFE to spend time in classrooms, visit our “Amazement Park” in the gym, check out some activities in our Maker Space, and stop by the cafeteria for an informal reception sponsored by our tremendous PTO.

For those families participating in the Cardboard Challenge, please have children bring their creations to school by Thursday to be included in the showcase.

Save the Date! It seems early, but please mark Thursday, August 23rd on your calendars for Parent Orientation and Sneak-A-Peek!

Upcoming Events:

  • May 17th: Spring Open House from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Last week was a busy one at CFE!

Teacher Appreciation Week was a huge success! We are so lucky to have such wonderful teachers and staff to work with our children every day, and we hope they enjoyed their week.

Special thanks to Patty Kutz and Michelle Boyle for all of their hard work to prepare such a special week of acknowledgement. Thanks also to all of the generous parents who donated meals, snacks, drinks, desserts, and time to help things run smoothly.

We hope everyone enjoyed the 69th Annual May Fair Friday. The weather cooperated and the children all did a wonderful job!

The third grade girls were amazing performing the traditional May Fair dance, thanks in large part to the special group of ladies who worked with them for weeks leading up to the performance. Thank you to Dana Cellucci, Brett Clancy, Megan Davis, Rebecca Haley, Leigh Heister, and Alexandra Albrecht! Thanks also to Mr. Judd for allowing the girls to practice in the gym, and to Craig Ellis and Stanley Jones for helping us move the Maypole. This is a great tradition that we hope will continue for many years to come!

The 2018-19 School Supply Sale is open. You should have received ordering information in your child’s backpack. All orders must be placed online at www.schooltoolbox.com from now until June 15th. Please contact Dana Cellucci with any questions.

Our new PTO board has been voted in for the 2018-19 school year. Jessica Lang and Joyce Yoon are the new CFE PTO co-presidents, and Jeff Ellison and Meredith Petruccelli are the new co-vice presidents. Congrats and best of luck!

Remaining board members Christina Condelles, Katherine Lombardo, and Leigh Heister will continue in their current roles for the 2018-19 school year.

Funding for Collaboration Lab and Piano requests from our special projects fund was also approved at our May 9th meeting.

Dana and I have finished our roles as PTO co-presidents and would like to sincerely thank the ladies who served on the board with us this year. We really enjoyed working with all of you. 

We would also like to thank all of the parents, teachers, and staff who volunteered their time to help with PTO events, and Mr. Dutkiewicz for all the time and energy he puts into working with the PTO.

It really does take a village to run all of the great events at our school that allow us to fund valuable programs and invest in technology that enhances our children’s learning at CFE.

The PTO invites you to stop by our table in the cafeteria during Open House to meet the board, hear about some of our projects (past and future), and learn more about how you can get involved in 2018-19. Drop in and enjoy some light refreshments as a token of our appreciation for all you do to support the PTO, and enter our raffle for a chance to win spirit wear, spirit wear gift certificates for next year’s sale, and even a piece of jewelry!

We hope to see everyone Thursday evening!

Greetings Chargers!

It’s Staff Appreciation Week at CFE! I want to thank our wonderful PTO for their generosity in planning an awesome week for our teachers and staff. From a new refrigerator and microwave in our staff room, to some unknown surprises, it is sure to be a fantastic week at CFE!

Special thanks to Patty Kutz, Michelle Boyle, Kara Hyman, Jessica Lang and all of the parents who donated items to make this week extra special. I believe we have the greatest staff in all the land and we are so fortunate to receive such support from our family community. Thank you! 

This just in! CFE has once again exceeded our First in Math Goal for the year! I challenged our students to reach 1,250,000 stickers (3.8 million problems solved) in our online First in Math program. As expected, CFE absolutely crushed the goal and even with six weeks remaining, we are ranked No. 13 in Pennsylvania and No. 34 in the country. We will have a First in Math Celebration June 8th to recognize our top scorers and everyone who contributed to this big win. Thank you for your support at home!

This Friday, May 11th, is our 69th Annual May Fair! It's hard to believe our May Fair has been an annual tradition for nearly 70 years! All of our students are actively working to prepare for their performances. Please see details here about joining us on Friday.

Cardboard Challenge: The CFE staff worked together Monday to design and build their own cardboard creations for our Spring Open House next week. All students working on cardboard creations should plan to bring them to CFE Tuesday, May 15th. We will store and organize family projects to showcase at our Cardboard Amazement Park on the evening of May 17th. Thank you in advance for your support and participation!

In Case You Missed It Last Week: As you know, Mr. Barr has announced his retirement after 40 years with Unionville-Chadds Ford. His fourth grade position has been posted and we are actively working to hire the best teacher possible to join our CFE family.

Pending school board approval, Mrs. Carson will also be retiring from UCFSD after 13 years as the CFE Librarian. Her position will soon be posted as well. Mr. Barr and Mrs. Carson have both left big shoes to fill and without a doubt, we will miss them both very much.

In other staff news, Mrs. Keller and Miss Morettini are switching positions. Mrs. Keller will become our new pre-first teacher and Miss Morettini will move into her first grade position. Miss Morettini has taught first grade and kindergarten in the past, and Mrs. Keller is a perfect fit for our pre-first students.

Finally, we currently have three sections of every grade level with the exception of first grade. As the first grade cohort moves to second grade, Mrs. Conover will move from second grade to first grade for the 2018-19 school year.

To recap, our new first grade teachers will be Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. Conover, and Miss Morettini and our second grade teachers will be Mr. Lapp and Mrs. Gillespie. This smaller cohort will likely cause similar changes each year going forward, but this is common in most schools as population sizes fluctuate.

Substitute Teaching Opportunities: Are you considering working while your children are in school? Have you thought about becoming a substitute teacher?

UCFSD permits substitutes from The Substitute Teacher Service (STS) Guest Teacher Program to substitute in our district. This program allows individuals with a four-year degree to complete an online training program to prepare to teach in the classroom as day-to-day substitutes.

STS, our substitute vendor, will be on hand at our Open House to answer questions.

Welcome to a big week at CFE!

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Be sure to thank your teachers and staff for all they do for our children! It looks like there are still two opportunities to help if you are available.

Our re-scheduled PTO Meeting will be held tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. This is the last meeting of the 2017/2018 school year. At the meeting, we will:

  • Discuss and vote to approve two special enrichment projects using funds not previously allocated to the 2017/18 budget. One is a new piano for the school and the other is funding for enhancements to the technology classroom.
  • Vote in the new board members for the 2018/2019 school year, including two new vice presidents: Jeff Ellison and Meredith Petruccelli.

Please come to the meeting to learn more, meet our board, and help us vote!

Friday is our May Fair from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Come watch your children sing and celebrate the beginning of spring!

The PTO board wants to meet you at Open House May 17th! Please stop by our table in the cafeteria to learn about the PTO, enjoy light refreshments, and maybe even win some cool raffle prizes!

Have a great week!

May is always the start of a very busy end of the school year. With our 69th Annual May Fair May 11th, Open House May 17th, and Spring Concert May 23rd, the month is packed with events! Most grades are looking forward to educational field trips this month, and Mr. Judd and Miss Clark are actively planning our May 31st Field Day.

Inevitably, the end of the school year also means personnel changes and updates.

Happy May! Although we only have a little more than a month of school left, there are still lots of important events coming up.

Next week will be our final PTO meeting of the year. Join us Wednesday, May 9th at 9:30 a.m. to vote in some new board members for 2018/2019.

Next week is also Teacher Appreciation Week. The PTO will be celebrating our fine teachers and staff throughout the week. There are still a few spots open to donate food or volunteer to help; please consider making a contribution if you haven’t already. Don’t forget to let our amazing teachers and staff know you appreciate all they do!

Thank you Chadds Ford Elementary for another successful drive to support our sister school! Together, we collected 53 uniform pants/shorts, 40 uniform shirts, and over 40 backpacks for the students of Mitchell Elementary. These much-needed items will be delivered this week. Your continued support makes a huge difference!

Reminder to Rising Sixth Graders: Patton spirit wear will be available for purchase at the Patton Carnival May 4th (so far the weather looks great!) from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and at the Patton PTO meeting May 10th from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Patton cafeteria. Start the year in style! Questions/comments?

Hope everyone has a great week!
