We are planning on having Worker’s Holiday the day after Martin Luther King Day. The activity will be our annual sledding activity at CHS soccer field, IF we have enough snow. If the snow is too sparse, we will postpone the activity from one day to the next, until we get snow. We need to be flexible and be prepared each day. Students will need to bring these items:
Large plastic garbage bag
Packet of hot chocolate or cider
Warm clothing (coat, hat, gloves, boots, extra layers)
*Don’t wear all your layers to school, since this will be in the afternoon
We will slide down the hill on our garbage bags, so the bigger/thicker, the better. No sleds or plastic saucers. We will furnish hot water and cups for the drinks. We plan to be away from the school from 1:00-3:15. Remember, students need to earn 80% or higher and have all assignments turned in by this Friday 15th.
Please continue to monitor home reading (30 minutes a night), and math homework. We would also love it if you would log into your students’ google accounts and help make revisions on the essays they are writing. We would like all students to achieve a score of 24 (out of 30).
You will find a permission slip, for a lesson by Mrs. Bassett, about the dangers of the choking game. Your child will need permission to attend the class, which will be taught in March.
Thank you for helping your child at home and supporting our efforts here at school. We enjoy teaching your children and seeing them succeed. Please contact for any concerns you may have.
