MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
I want to congratulate our 5th grade students who auditioned for the upcoming Oldies Dance! The UCF Oldies Dance is a district tradition that works to introduce soon-to-be middle schoolers from the four elementary buildings through an old-fashioned dance...this coming Friday, Feb. 27th at Hillendale Elementary. Our 5th graders auditioned last week and did a tremendous job. I don't know who the judges will choose, but I was very impressed with our student's preparation, courage, and performance! I wish them all the best luck!

A $50 prize will be awarded to the student who submits a piece of art that is most representative and best honors Paul Scarborough's work. The winning art will be framed and displayed at the school for the year.
Paul Scarborough was a local artist and a great friend of the Chadds Ford Elementary School who passed away a year ago this month, February 2014.
