Chester Elementary School
February 27, 2023. A Year of Significance!
Well, winter still means business. The picture here was taken by a student in Chester and sent to me just this morning. Thanks to all of you for adjusting your lives at home to accommodate another snow day. The call was made early by our superintendent and it sure turned out to be the right one as most people received a couple of feet of snow. What's more, it looks like additional snowfall is on the way. A reminder: please send your child dressed for lots of snow next week!
The end of our second trimester is next Friday, 3/3. This means that your students will be knee-deep in wrapping up testing this week: writing, math and reading. The results will be used to drive classroom instruction as we head into the last third of the school year. March already? Amazing. There is hope for Spring: baseball and softball games for CHS get underway next week. Someone shared this with me today and I had to laugh as I had just finished removing a lot of snow from around my house.
A great weekend to all of you. Take care.
