SPRING FORWARD TECHNOLOGY FUNDRAISER LAUNCHES MARCH 16!

Purchase a $10 Jamba Juice discount card and $5 goes directly back to our school!

Every cent will be used to upgrade our technology. As the school wins, so do students…

  • $10,000 raised = a laptop cart + 2 free dress days!
  • $20,000 raised = a laptop cart + smart boards + document cameras + 4 free dress days!

The fundraising card gets you 8 medium smoothies at $3 each (normally $5 - $6) and a free small smoothie, a savings of up to $20 per card.

Watch for order forms coming home on Thursday, March 16. Donations in lieu of card purchases are also welcome.

The fundraiser runs from March 16th to April 6th. Everybody loves smoothies - please share with all your family and friends. Thank you for your support!


LAST PLEA FOR YEARBOOK PICTURES

We are still in need of pictures, especially for:

  • 3rd grade
  • 4th grade
  • 6th grade
  • 8th grade
  • Art grade
  • Music
  • P.E.
  • Family Reading Night

  • Harvest Festival
  • lunch and recess time.

If you have any pictures to share with us, please send them to Mrs. Marlatt at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by April 1st.

The yearbook is a celebration of all the amazing learning experiences that happen for your children here at Cascade Heights and a repository of memories for them to treasure as they grow up. Thank you for your help!


SPRING MUSIC CONCERT

Save the date! Thursday April 13.
Afternoon matinee, 1:00 – 2:30pm.
Evening performance, 6:30 – 8:00pm.
CHPCS gym.

Our Spring Concert is quickly approaching! All classes, Kindergarten through 8th grade, will be performing. This is a special occasion and showcases the culmination of what your children have been learning this year in music class. All performances need an audience - don’t miss it!

More information on dress code, student arrival times, parking, etc. will be forthcoming.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Pridey at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


A NOTE ON THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL

Lay all the rumors to rest! CHPCS will NOT be adding extra days to our school year. The last day of school is Tuesday, June 6, 2017 as noted in your planner.

We have enough instructional hours “banked” in our schedule that even this year’s blizzards are not going to impinge on your summer vacation plans. Hooray!
