It's a busy week at CFES!
On Tuesday, January 31st, we are hosting an assembly program titled, "Dancing with the Honeybees". The presenter is highly engaging and includes ALL students in the program. Following the assemblies in the morning, the presenter will be working with smaller groups to more elaborately demonstrate the life and work of the honeybee. Ask your child about the program tomorrow evening...it should "bee" a great day!
The Elementary UHS Spirit Night is tomorrow evening! Unionville H.S. is hosting an Elementary Spirit Night at the UHS vs WC Rustin HS Basketball Game on Tuesday, January 31st at 7:00 pm! All elementary students from all four buildings are encouraged to attend with their families to enjoy the game and show their school spirit! If you are available...please wear CFES spirit wear and come to the UHS gym by 7:00 pm! Students are FREE but there is a $5 ticket fee for adults.
Our February PTO meeting is on Wednesday, February 1st at 9:15 am in the CFE Makerspace. Come check out some of the new additions to the space and hear about the great things the PTO is working on!
We are also gearing up for Friday's annual Talent Show! I have to say that this is one of my favorite events each year. Our students are absolutely amazing! Aside from being tremendously talented, their courage and confidence to perform in front of their parents and peers is simply amazing! Huge thanks to the PTO for all the time and effort going into organizing the event and also to our staff who will once again put on a little show of our own!
Huge thanks to everyone who supported last week's Healthy Body Week! Nurse Knight and our staff had fun creating some informative and often humorous healthy body videos for our students. Nurse Knight organized some great recess activities and we are very appreciative of Brandywine CrossFit and Yoga by Lynne who facilitated classes for our students who were interested. Nurse Knight also whipped up some deliciously healthy smoothies for our students during three lunch periods. Check out the fun on our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Chadds-Ford-Elementary-School-145264965551020/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/shawndutkiewicz) pages! Please see some additional healthy body tips from Nurse Knight (attachment).
As always, thank you for your support!
Mr. Shawn Dutkiewicz
