A Note from Mrs. Wilson

Hello CCS Families!


Our event calendar is filling up quickly with field trips, the return of our grandparent luncheon, graduation, and so many other fun happenings here at CCS! Be sure to keep track of our list of events, and check out our sign as you drive by the school.


We have lots of fun adventures happening in our classrooms, including gardens, chicks, math lessons, science experiments, field trips, wax museums, and so much more! Stay tuned to future editions of the newsletter for photos and write ups!


Have a wonderful week, and thank you for being apart of our school community!

Thank you for Mrs. Benevides!

Dear Parents and Families,


I’m sending my sincere gratitude for making our Book Fair an outstanding success!


Thanks to your contributions, we sold at least 612 books at our Fair. We raised over $2600 for our school, which we’ll use to stock classroom libraries and the school library.


My reward for hosting a Book Fair is watching your kids discover new books. All that joy wouldn’t be possible without volunteers from our school PTO community – you deserve my special thanks.


I hope to see you and your child at our next Fair. Until then, happy reading!


Gratefully,


Mrs. Anna Benevides

Book Fair Chairperson

Chichester PTO Easter Egg Event

We are SO excited to announce the Easter event we've been working on!

*More event details will come, but we want to get the date out to the community.

*This event is for the residents of Chichester and their children. Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate other towns at this time.

*This is not a school affiliated event. The PTO and town of Chichester are working together to make this happen. We also have residents and local businesses who have graciously offered services and donations.

*A FB event will be created in the next few days with details and we kindly ask you to let us know if you plan on attending. It really helps us figure out how much we need for supplies and logistics.

Stay tuned for details! If you would like to help at this event or would like to donate candy, eggs, or egg-stuffing services, please let us know!

4th Grade Visits Pembroke Academy Music Program

On Tuesday, March 29th, our 4th graders traveled to Pembroke Academy to hear a performance of their Band and Chorus programs. They had a wonderful time, and many were inspired by their performances.

March Pizza with the Principal

Each month, teachers nominate students for Pizza with the Principal in order to recognize goals being reached, hard work, kindness, and adhering to our classroom and school expectations. I am so excited to have this celebration time back again! Below are photos of March's nominees. Rocky The Ram, our school mascot, was able to join us for the presentation of certificates! Let's all keep working hard and reaching our goals!
