Charger eNews - May 9, 2017


Greetings Chargers!

Once again, I want to thank your tremendous PTO for a fantastic year!  We had our final meeting last week, and we have begun planning for the 17-18 school year.  I believe there are still some openings to lead and support events for next year.  Please consider getting more involved if you can!

Friendly Reminder! Our annual Spring Open House is this Wednesday, May 10th from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.  Our Open House is a great opportunity to visit your child's classroom and see all of the great work they have been doing, peruse the CFE halls and take in all of the beautiful and creative art work, and visit our gymnasium to learn about some of our great S.T.E.M. initiatives.   We have some awesome S.T.E.M. based projects, interactive activities, and demonstrations planned for you.  See attached flyer for more details.

Our 68th Annual MAY FAIR is this Friday, May 12th!  We are hoping for great weather!  Keep your fingers crossed! Please see attached flyer for more details.

As always, thank you for your support!

Mr. Shawn Dutkiewicz

CFES Principal


We had out last board meeting on Wednesday May 3rd. In addition to hearing from John Sanville, we approved new PTO by-laws and we voted in three new positions. Our new recording secretary, communication secretary, and treasurer for the 2017/2018 school year have been approved. Thank you to our current board members who will be rolling off next year. Kristen Goodman, Anna Marcotte, and Wendy Bomberger have served our school and our children for two years. Thank you so much for everything you have done, you will be missed.

Teacher appreciation week was a hit! The teachers and staff members really enjoyed their week of recognition and thanks. Thank you to Patty Kutz, Katherine Lombardo, Naiara Xavier, Kim DeFelice for running the event. Additionally, thank you to all the parents who contributed food and time to help making this event successful. It was truly an example of how supportive our parent community is. The teacher appreciation team needs your help next year. Please reach out to Patty Kutz (pattykutz@gmail.com) if you are interested in helping!

May fair is this Friday, May 12th at 2pm. All the volunteers and children have been working hard at this Chadds Ford Elementary time honored event! Please come out and support one of our last school events for the year.

Also, don't forget, if you have expenses to submit to the PTO please have your requests submitted by June 1st. This will ensure a timely reimbursement.

Mark your calendars! There will be a happy hour on Thursday May 25th 2017 at Brandywine Prime starting at 6:30pm. Come meet your CFE friends for a night of enjoyment!
