Chester Elementary School
December 7, 2018
Greetings Parents! It's a busy month at CES!
These next two weeks teachers will continue to push our students academically because we recognize that we have limited time with students and so much to learn. On Thursday, December 20 teachers may have some small celebrations in their classrooms, and at 2:00 we'll spend the last 30-40 minutes to come together and sing a few songs. Winter break will start on December 21 (assuming we don't have any snow days these next couple weeks), and we will welcome our students back on January 7, 2019.
This may be a great time to encourage your child to set some productive goals/resolutions for 2019. Maybe they can set a goal to read so many books, master times tables, spend more outdoor exercise time and less screen time, or another idea? (I've set several goals/resolutions, including learning more about our students, families, staff and curriculum, as well as catching a big fish at Lake Almanor, hiking every week this summer, taking my wife and grandson on a trip and riding my bike around the lake when the weather gets warmer. We love our new community!)
In closing, please know that we appreciate the opportunity to work with our students and families, and want to wish all of you an outstanding holiday season with family and friends.
