Planning Update for RE-opening Chichester Central School From Superintendent Peter Warburton

Hope, Certainty and Communication

Hi everyone,

At the Chichester School Board meeting last night, Ms. Richardson and I presented the first part of our reopening plan for the coming year. A number of parents, community and staff members attended the meeting and provided feedback and asked some very good questions.

The Board will meet again next Wednesday, July 29, when we will present part 2 of our plan and respond to questions that were raised on July 21st.

The Board is expected to vote on the entire plan.

Please let me know if you have any questions or thoughts before hand, email or call 485-5187.

***The meeting next Wednesday the 29th will be remote, with the link published on the CCS and SAU 53 website on Monday, July 27th.

Thank you,

A Message from Chichester Town Library ~ Imagine Your Story!

Summer Reading is back, starting Monday, July 13-August 24th. Sign up online, or call 798-5613 for assistance. We are also having a writing contest using the theme: Imagine your Story. Three categories: K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. First prizes will be awarded and winning stories will be put into a book at the library. Next Wednesday at 2 on Facebook, Caroline will be doing a Summer Storytime reading the book, The Knight and the Dragon by Timor DePaula. Teens and Adults can join in on the fun, and pick up a Bingo card at the library for a raffle prize of a book tote filled with goodies and books. Lastly, we will have make and take art projects for you to take home. Our first project is: clothespin puppets. Stay tuned for more fun! Happy Reading!

News from the Environmental Club

In October of 2019, the Environmental Club, led by Mr. Gagnon, acquired 50 locally grown garlic cloves to be planted. This unique crop is planted in the fall, survives the punishing winter, and is generally harvested in early summer.

Kindergarten/New Student Registration and Re-enrollment

ALMA is the Student Information System used in to house our digital registration forms, student grades, and student information. Parents/guardians access ALMA to complete registration, annual permission forms, and to view student grades and report cards.

If you have a child who is new to our school, you will need to set up a new account. If you have a student who is returning for another year, simply login to ALMA and update any contact information, medical information and permissions on file for the current school year. The added bonus is not having to fill out all those paper forms on the first day of school!

We are so excited meet our new friends and welcome back our returning ones for the 2020-2021 school year!
