How wonderful it has been to see all of the smiling faces of students and parents as they entered the building over the past week! The excitement on the faces of the students makes us all remember why we went into the education profession in the first place. These students are our children every day. We not only aim to help them "reach new heights", but we also want to provide them with a safe, secure place to attend every single day.
At CHES, we are concerned about the whole child. We focus on enriching your child's school experiences in the basics (English/Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies), the essentials (Art, Music, Physical Education, Guidance, Library, Technology), the formatives (communication, empathy, self-control, integrity, embracing diversity, grit, culture, teamwork), and the social/emotional.
With 95 new students at CHES this year, I am looking forward to working with our new families while maintaining the relationships with our 249 returning students and families! It is exciting to have 344 students PreK-5 to start 2018-2019!
