November Chickasaw Chatter

#ChickasawChampions #OBPride #TeamDCS

A Note from Mrs. Nichols

Dear Champion Families,

Gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. That is a perfect reflection of what I have experienced this year at CES. Every day, I am moved and inspired by what I see. Every day, I marvel at the incredible devotion of our staff and their unique ability to teach and inspire our children. Every day, I celebrate the amazing support of our parents and community.

I believe that the success of our school is built on a foundation of mutual respect and inclusiveness. Every day, dedicated teachers and staff nurture a culture of fairness, love and caring, all focused on the goal of providing a safe learning environment for our students and families. CES is committed to continuing this focus and supporting our families during the school day and beyond.

I am thankful that CES continues to strive for excellence in each and every classroom, in person or virtually, to grow stronger by our diversity, and to cultivate an open and positive school climate.

During this time of Thanksgiving, I want to share my gratitude and thank you for being such an important part of our children’s lives. This is a wonderful time of the year to get together with friends and family to celebrate and be thankful for all the wonderful people in our lives. On behalf of the Chickasaw Elementary staff, I would like to thank you for your continued support and wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving season!

This Month's BIG Idea

Our BIG idea for November is gratitude. Gratitude is when you let others know you see how they have helped you. You can show GRATITUDE by:

  • Start a gratitude list at home or school.
  • Ask your family what they are thankful for during dinner.
  • Let someone in your family know the reasons you are grateful for them.
