Chester Elementary School
March 22, 2019
We were excited to host the NED Show assembly last Tuesday. The students enjoyed the show and the message (Never give up, Encourage others & Do your best!). The assembly was free, and we committed to selling yo-yo's and turn over all proceeds to the NED Show to "pay it forward" for another school's assembly. Thank you for supporting this event!
Know an incoming kindergartener next year? If so, please pass on that our K round up is April 25, 2019 from 8:30-10:00 am at CES. We will be providing free health exams, and requesting birth certificates and shot records. Please register your K child online by visiting www.pcoe.k12.ca.us, click on "enrollment" on the right side of the screen, select "2019-2020 school year," create an account and complete the registration. We can also assist with online registration on April 25. Please call CES if questions. Thanks!
K-3rd families. Please check out the "My Body Belongs to Me" letter attached to this newsletter to learn more about a presentation on March 27. We will be welcoming Michelle Ridley from Plumas Crisis and Intervention Center to provide this training to our students. We want our families to be aware of the content and if you do not want your child to participate then complete the attached form and send back to your child's teacher. They provide a phone number if you have questions about the lesson. Thanks!
We appreciate your willingness to review our communication, stay informed and be a part of your child's education. Thank you!

Kindness Ninja Now Coming to CES April 5, 9:30 am.
We are EXCITED to announce that CES is going to be taking on a massive kindness challenge and its launching with an assembly on April 5 (assuming no more big snowstorms)!
THE CHALLENGE = KINDNESS EXPLOSION
The entire student body will be challenged to carry-out acts of kindness in the halls, classrooms, at home and throughout the community. Each student will receive a kindness challenge so don’t be shocked if you see a little more Kindness around the house .
Challenge #2 – Global Impact
During the assembly, students will hear stories, see pictures and watch videos of kids their own age in Kenya. But one big difference, is that these children have never worn a pair of shoes in their life! We are going to challenge the entire school to collect gently used sneakers that will be sent to needy children and families around the globe. So go throughout your closet to see if you have any sneakers you don’t wear anymore. (also ask your friends, family and neighbors!) Important – we are only collecting sneakers. Please don’t bring boots, flip-flops, slippers, etc.
To help us make an even bigger impact, we want to ask you to engage in conversation with your family about the subject of Kindness. Ask them about what they’ve done, acknowledge what they do, and encourage the simple life skill of Kindness.
