What’s happening at Chester Elementary
We hope you had an opportunity to spend more time with your child during the President’s Day week break from Feb 17-21. We’re excited to welcome back all our students from the break.
If you’re interested in reviewing our 2020-2021 calendar, please see “Plumas 20-21 calendar” in your email packet.
Check out the link from Josh at Smart Social titled Popular Teen Apps for Teens and Parents in your weekly newsletter. Within this resource, Josh identifies apps as green (safer) to orange (dangerous) to help us navigate through the vast online resources our students may experience. Hopefully this helps keep our students safe during their screen time.
Our Plumas Public Health Agency has a website with lots of useful information. We are provided updates regarding public health. Please take a moment to review their website link below and learn more about some health alerts for our area. Thanks!
Our February character focus is Positive Attitude. We all know the importance and value of our attitude and how we approach school and other activities. We appreciate our parents emphasizing the importance of students learning to be positive, working hard and being a good citizen at school.
Black History Month
February is also Black History Month. Our wonderful teachers will be highlighting some African-American heroes this month.
CES PTA Read-a-thon
Our wonderful PTA is sponsoring a read-a-thon to raise money for the many events they do for our CES students. A link is provided in our weekly newsletter with all of the information.
In summary, Feb 7-28, students collect pledges; Feb 29-March 7, students read; March 8-12, students collect from their sponsors; then on March 13 they turn in the pledge sheet and the money. We hope all of our students are able to participate. Thank you!
In closing, we appreciate your ongoing support and teaming with us to make 2019-2020 an exceptional elementary experience for our students. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
