MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
As we approach the winter break, I want to thank all of our families and friends who support Chadds Ford and help to make our school such a positive place to come to each day. We are truly fortunate to have an opportunity to serve such a tremendous community. Our volunteers are just phenomenal ...from serving on the PTO to facilitating school events...from assisting in our library to running our school store...from maintaining our planting beds...to helping in our classrooms...the list goes on and on. As we enter the new year, please consider getting involved in any way that you can. Your presence in the school is a great support for us and makes such an impact on your child. Speaking of community service, this past Saturday, Miss Yackel and I, along with six 5th grade students volunteered to support the Kennett Area Community Services organization. As part of our CFE "Give the Gift of Warmth" collection, YOUR donations went directly into the hands of folks in need. Thank you for your donations and generosity! It is wonderful to see our students serving their community.
From all of us at CFES...we wish you a wonderful winter break! As the students like to say, "see you next year"!
Mr. Shawn Dutkiewicz
MESSAGES FROM THE PTO
The PTO Board wishes you and your families a Happy Holidays and best wishes for health and happiness in the New Year! Enjoy the winter break!
MLK SERVICE PROJECT
This year's MLK Service event will provide needed items to students from the Chester County Family Academy School in West Chester. This Academy provides a private school style education to over 100 K-2 students whose families are financially struggling.
We will be collecting NEW items and creating care packages for each of these children. Needed items include small stuffed animals, dental hygiene items and pajamas. Collection will begin 12/16 and will last until 1/11/16. On MLK day we will be sorting items, creating the individual care packages. See the flyer for more info. Contact Rebecca Haley for more info.
SHOPAROO - PASSIVE FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY
Have you heard of Shoparoo? You need to. Shoparoo is a super simple (and fun!) way to earn money for our school: whenever you shop, take a picture of the receipt and CFES earns points/money. It's completely anonymous and almost any receipt is eligible. (Shoparoo is conducting market research based on what's bought and where).
Get started today by downloading the app and choosing Chadds Ford Elementary as your supported school. This particular link earns us 150 points for all new registrants. http://app.shoparoo.com/r/wuss5312
Two of our long standing traditions need chairpersons for next year -The Art Show and Fall Festival. Many of our long term volunteers will be leaving CFE for the middle school and are ready to "pass the torch". Now is the time to get involved and shadow this years leaders to learn the ropes. Partner with a friend and get in touch with Vivian Lee or Heather Marshall and consider serving one of these great events!
