Title One Survery

Title One Survery

This year Chilton Elementary became a Schoolwide Title 1 school.  That means that federal dollars we receive for reading support in our school can be used to support all students.  This survey is asking how we are doing and asking for your suggestions for planning purposes.  It would be great if you could complete it and return it to the elementary school office.  There are also copies in the Elementary Office that you could complete if that is easier. Thank you in advance for taking the time to do this.

Thanks!

CHS Band in the 2015 National Memorial Day Parade

Dear Chilton Public School Parents and Community Members,

Members of the Chilton High School Band will be leaving school on Friday, May 22, and travelling to Washington D.C. On Monday, Memorial Day, May 25, the Band will have the honor of marching in the National Memorial Day Parade. There will be a two hour live broadcast (including commercials) of the parade starting at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 1:00 p.m. Central Time. For a sense of timing and perspective, you should be aware that the Chilton Band is unit 105, out of 110 total parade units. Viewers should also advised that no one particular element in the parade is guaranteed television time.

The parade can be streamed live here:

The parade will also be broadcast live on these channels:
Nationally televised live on the REELZ NETWORK (check local cable listings and set the DVR!)
Around the world on the Pentagon Channel (check local cable listings)
Locally (DC market) – News Channel 8

Graduating Seniors and their Network Accounts

Graduating Seniors and their Network Accounts

Attention Seniors! After you graduate, your H drive on the school computer network, your Gmail and your Google Drive accounts (including documents, presentations, saved media, shared docs and so on) will be deleted. If you want to keep those e-mails and items that you've created, you'll need to transfer them to other personal accounts. If you have used your school gmail as your contact information for scholarships that continue into next year, you will need to contact your scholarship provider to give them a new e-mail address! There is a handout on the library desk with tips on how to do this and this will also be posted on the schools website, under "CHS Forms and More."

Summer Reading

May152015

Summer Reading

Many students and families regard the summer break as just that – a break from school and classroom studies. Unfortunately, it often means a break from reading, which can seriously hamper achievement in the classroom.

There's a solid link between the amount of independent reading children do and their success in school. Research shows that kids who never crack open a book during the summer often fall behind in reading – the notorious "summer slide" – while kids who do read, maintain or improve their reading and learning skills.

In fact, we've found that children who read four or more books during the summer perform much better on reading comprehension tests the following school year than other kids who read just one or no books during the break.

So it's extremely important that we get more books into the hands of our students. That's why we're urging kids and parents to visit our Book Fair to stock up on books for summer reading. You'll find a great selection of the books kids want to read – something for every age and interest. (In a recent survey, 91 percent of children said they were more likely to finish a book they pick out themselves.)

With your help, we can keep children reading during the summer months, while sharpening a life skill that is so critical to success inside and outside the classroom.

I look forward to seeing you at the Book Fair!

  • May 19, 5:00-8:30 p.m.

If you can't make it to the book fair, please check out this link.

You may purchase books online and have them delivered to school before the end of the year.
