Chatfield School News
May 31 - June 9, 2022
From the Directors
Olympics / Tribal Wars is Friday! Please bring your food items that represent your child's country to the gym Friday morning.
The Olympic parade begins at 9:15!
Summer reading books will be coming home next week. Please make sure your child spends time reading this summer. The summer reading book assigned by the future homeroom teacher is very important! It helps to create a sense of unity for all students when they begin the school year because all students have a common text to refer to. In addition, all students should be reading, reading, reading all summer. As Mrs. Dunsmore always says, "Reading is like a sport you only become better by practicing!"
The last day of school is Thursday, June 9. It is a half day of school and students are dismissed at 11:30am.
We wish everyone a safe and happy summer vacation!
