Cheltenham Elementary School


Pedestrian and Bus Safety Assembly Highlights

Cheltenham Elementary has partnered with the Montgomery County Health Department to increase students awareness of the benefits of walking to school! AAA and the MCHD worked together educating our students on pedestrian safety. Mrs. Pellish then had students create pedestrian safety postcards. The five chosen winners and their families were honored at our bus and pedestrian safety assembly! These postcards will be handed out during the upcoming Kindergarten registration as well as to our current walkers!


Dear Fathers and Father-figures,

On Tuesday, March 29th from 6:00 – 7:00 pm close to 40 Dads attended our WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) Program Pizza Night Kick-off. Dad's were given a brief presentation of the the program and many already signed up to be WATCH D.O.G.S. If you would like for information on this event, go to and visit the WATCH D.O.G.S site. CES coordinator is Mr. Daniel Levy, Special Ed teacher. He can be reached at

WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.

24 Challenge Game

Fourth graders have been busy learning the strategies and number patterns necessary to play and win the 24 Game. In order to match our talents with fourth grade students from the other elementary schools and fifth graders at EP, we held a mini-competition to find the best and quickest at solving 24 cards. Thirty students met and competed under the supervision of Mr. Zimmer and Mrs.Golden in the building semi-finals. The top seven students will then compete to find the top four students at Cheltenham Elementary. The district competition will be held at Elkins Park School, Monday, April 4, 2016.

Congratulations! Good Luck!! Keep on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing!!

Support our Food Drive!

Our annual food drive for the Berachah Church Food Pantry is currently in full swing, and it will continue until the end of May 2016. Last year we collected over 1,000 food items. The clients being served by the pantry keeps growing. However, funding and food items are static. With your help, dedication, and enthusiasm we can match or surpass the amount of food items collected last year. This is a great opportunity to give back to our community. It is also a time for us to give thanks for our blessings and share with those who truly need our help. Thank you in advance for your continued support and generosity. CES is a community that cares.
