Image for May

From the Principal’s Desk:              

Dear Parents and Guardians,

  I am simply amazed at how quickly this school year has gone by! Our 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade students have been testing with the new TNReady Test (still under the TCAP umbrella) beginning April 18th and continuing through the first week of May. I am very confident that our students are prepared and ready for the test. They have worked very hard this year and so have their teachers!! We will continue to work hard the remainder of the year so that our students are equipped and ready for the next grade level. Good attendance continues to be a top priority – we need your child here EACH AND EVERY DAY!   Please continue to encourage your child to read over the summer. If I could recommend just one thing that would make the most impact on your child’s education, it would be to encourage him/her to read, read, read!

I hope that your child’s experience has been enjoyable and productive this year. Now, we will begin thinking about next year and how we can improve to make our school even better. This year, we are going to be having a RISING-UP Day on May 22nd from 1:00-2:15. This will allow your children to go to their next grade-level and be introduced to the teachers that they may have. Parents will also be invited to attend with their children to become familiar with the expectations of that grade-level. Please watch for more information coming soon about the day!

We value your input, so please let us know of any ways we can improve and grow. And also, let us know where we are doing a good job!

 I want to praise and thank you all for the tremendous support you have given our school this year. CHES has wonderful parent/family, community, and business support. We cannot adequately express the gratitude we feel. On behalf of all CHES students, faculty, and staff, I thank you for the love, help, and support you have given me/us throughout the year. Have a wonderful summer and play hard!

 Best regards,

 Hope Malone
