Wednesday, November 2 at 8:10am

One of the best things about Fall is sitting in the library with tea or a cup of coffee and reading a good book. One of the best things about working at CHPCS is getting to know parents. I've decided to combine the two and have Coffee in the Library during the month of November.

Please join me at 8:10 am on Wednesday, November 2 in the library for an open, collaborative conversation about anything that comes up.


Wednesdays from 5:30 - 7:30pm in the CHPCS Library
November 2 to December 14, 2016

Active Parenting Now empowers parents to teach effective communication skills, practice positive discipline, encourage problem solving among children, and become a part of a supportive parenting community. 
This complimentary workshop includes childcare and a light meal.

An 8th grade fundraiser

Wear your craziest socks to this fun filled night! Everyone in the school is invited! 8th grade is raising money for their end of the year Ashland trip.

Admission costs $1.00. The concession will be selling hotdogs, fruit snacks, pretzels, apple slices and, ooohhh… glow sticks! Prices range from $ .50 to $1.50. Pre-sale order forms are coming home or can be downloaded from the link below. (Pre-ordering helps the concessionaires plan, and saves you time in line!)

Hope to see you there!

An 8th grade fundraiser

8th grade is having a poinsettia sale! Order forms and money will be due on November 7. Poinsettias will be delivered on December 7 and will be available for pickup from noon to 4 or by arrangement with Mrs. Adams.

This money is for our amazing trip to Ashland, Oregon. We really need your help raising money for our last hurrah before we go to high school.

Thank you for your support. We appreciate it!

Thank you for your support!

Our total sales were $2117.95 which earned $847.00 to spend on books for the teachers and school. Everyone enjoyed the pirate theme and had fun with the guessing game of the pirates treasure.

Kudos to our Book Fair divas, Mrs. Zundel and Mrs. Langston for another successful fair!
