Sixth graders are groovin' into the 2021-22 school year like champs! Keep up the great work, sixth grade!


Skyward is an excellent tool for checking your child's current grades, staying up-to-date on missing assignments and late work, checking messages sent by Chatfield staff through email, and managing your child's hot lunch account. Additionally, you are able to set up to receive a weekly notification if a missing assignment is recorded in your child's grade book or if the grade drops below a specific percentage. If you do not currently have a login to your Skyward account, you can visit or call the main office. You can also use your child's login credentials. Please let us know if you have any questions on how to use Skyward.

Staying Organized with Keep Google Chrome Extension

Keep is a great tool for your child to create daily reminders, check-lists, or notes to save for later. We will teach students how to use Keep to aid their productivity and organization. Much like a planner, students can create reminders about upcoming due dates, tests and important events.

The Google Classroom

Your child will have access to Google Classroom where all assignments for math, ELA, science and social studies will be shared. We will spend time the first two weeks of school understanding all of the important features of the Google Classroom. Below is a tutorial created by Mrs. Boyle we strongly encourage all parents to view and reference should they have questions about Google Classroom. Students will be required to view the tutorial as part of a class assignment. Please take the time to view the tutorial and let us know if you have any questions.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Permission Slip

We are excited to have the opportunity to take our sixth graders to The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore! The cost of the trip is $175. We are accepting deposits of $55. Fundraising opportunities will be an option to families who wish to participate. Lapeer Area Discount Cards will be the first fundraiser of the school year. Each card is sold for $10 and contains discounts at various Lapeer area businesses. Students make 60% profit for each card sold. For example, if a student sells one card, they can earn $6 towards the cost of their trip. Cards may issued to students ONLY if the parent/guardian has signed a contract. Contracts will be distributed to students interested in selling cards.

The permission slip and refundable deposit of $60 is due Monday, October 4.The deposit will be used to pay for busing expenses through Dean Transportation.

Chaperones are welcome to attend the trip. However, we are only able to transport a limited number of chaperones to the U.P. and from trail head to trail head. If you are interested in attending the trip, please keep in mind that we hike approximately 4-6 miles a day and climb about 500 stairs. It is important that those who attend are physically able to hike and assist with putting up and taking down tents. Additionally, those who volunteer to attend will be asked to help assist Chatfield staff and students during our stay at the campground and at meal times.

If you would like to attend, please complete the chaperone drawing slip attached to the field study permission slip. The chaperone drawing slip should be submitted no later than September 17. We will conduct the drawing Monday, September 20. A letter will be sent to those who submit a slip notifying you if you will attend the trip or if your name will be placed on a wait list. Chaperones who wish to attend the trip must be a parent or guardian of the student. Chaperones are expected to submit a $60 deposit and the chaperone expectations contract, failure to do so will result in losing your spot to attend the trip.

Permission slips were sent home the first week of school.
