Principal's Pen

Greetings Chaffee Family,

Don't forget to order your child's Chaffee shirt! Online orders are due TODAY, August 20 (link is below).

We are looking forward to iReady testing this week. iReady testing will provide us with helpful information on where our students are in their reading and math skill acquisition so that we can plan effective lessons to meet our students’ needs.

Our PTA Meeting with Open House will be August 29, 5:30-7. We hope to see your family there. Bruster’s Ice Cream will be available for purchase. Additional parking is available at Community Fellowship Church. Please do not park illegally in our Chaffee neighborhood.

I encourage everyone to join our PTA! We are very fortunate to have such a hardworking and supportive PTA. Becoming a member is a wonderful way to support the school and your child, so we hope you will join if you have not done so already. The class with the most PTA Members by August 29 will win a doughnut party with our school mascot, Bruce!

Thank you for your partnership!

Soar Eagles,

April Clark
