Week of September 21, 2020

Fall is Here!

Hello Chester Elementary Families,

CES students are amazing! We are all learning so much right know as students, parents and teachers. Remember, everything will not be perfect all the time, we will all do our best, and we will grow from our experiences. A Growth Mindset is believing that one's skills and intelligence can be improved with effort and persistence. Remember to give yourself grace as you learn with along side your students.

Fall begins on September 22 and we thought it would be fun to send an activity checklist to do with the family. So many opportunities that aren't happening can be replaced with new ones! Check it out and send pictures of your family participating in these to We can share on social media and in the newsletter!

Packets for the upcoming week will be available for your Distance Learning students on Thursdays after 3 PM through Sunday. These will be located in front of the school under the canopy. Please be sure to pick up and drop off work weekly.

With Flexibility and Grace,

Colly Fischer

Monday Morning Meetings

Our Monday Morning Meetings are all virtual right now. Thanks to our teachers to keep this tradition moving forward in remote learning. Students watch the meetings in their Canvas classroom and discuss with their class. Below is the presentation from last week. Responsibility was the character focus, think about ways that you can build responsibility into your student's life at home. Can they sort laundry, care for pets, or wash dishes? Any form of responsibility builds independence, confidence and pride.
