Chaffee Elementary News 5/8/2023
Greetings CES Families,
Thank you all for making Teacher Appreciation Week so special! Our faculty and staff are appreciative of everything we received! Chaffee is such a special place.
This week we will host Awards Day Ceremonies for kindergarten-4th grades. We would like for students to dress up for Awards Day. Students can earn the following awards: All As, All As & Bs, Excellent Attendance, i-Ready Reading/Math Growth, and Governors’ Physical Fitness. There will be other awards given specific to each grade level. We hope that you can join us to celebrate our students.
Our May Attendance Challenge started this past Monday! The top three classes will get a popsicle and (extra) recess party. We want all students at school every day unless they are excluded for a medical reason. Thank you for helping with this!
We still have many families who need to complete registration for the 2023-24 school year. Please encourage your friends to register as soon as possible. You can reach out to Ms. Cothren or Ms. Saylor with any questions. If your child’s registration isn’t complete you will be receiving an email this week to remind you to complete registration. Each Friday we draw student names for prizes to be given to those who have completed registration. Getting registered now will help us to create class lists for next school year.

It is vital that students are present each day unless sick. Students are allowed a limit of 7 parent sick notes a year. Students are considered truant if they have more than three unexcused absences at any time or if they have more than 18 absences for the year, whether the absences are excused or unexcused.
Please send excuse notes to your child's teacher or email them to Sarah Cothren.
What's Up in P.E this May?
Hello Golden Eagles! It's Coach B. I'm excited to give you an update on what your child has been learning in Physical Education. During the month of April, we completed spring fitness testing. In May, we will be working on kicking, volleying, and playing some end-of-the-year games! I am so proud of all of the hard work students have put into PE this year! Soar Eagles !
