PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Congratulations to our 6th graders on a fabulous production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat!  The talent of our students really shined and we are so proud of the entire cast and crew of the show!

Students in Grades 2 & 4 will be taking the OLSAT assessment this week.  This information is used as one measure to determine eligibility for entrance into our APEX program for the following school year.  There is nothing you need to do to prepare for these assessments.  The students will take a practice test on Monday to help them to understand the types of problems they will see on the assessment.

As part of our character education program, Chatterton School will be celebrating National Random Acts of Kindness Week from February 10th – February 14th.   Our goal this year is to beyond kindness and to show respect for people, living things and our Earth every day!  Below see the daily calendar and encourage your children to participate during this special week. Please have a discussion with them about kind acts they might do during the week.

Monday, 2/10 – We will be doing our 2nd school-wide No Place For Hate activity.  Ask your child about the activity they participated in today!  This is also a great time to ask how your child has been doing with their NPFH Pledge commitment and their Tree of Respect promise.

Tuesday, 2/11– Create a bookmark to donate to a friend, the librarian, or a teacher. Be creative with it! Cut cardstock into strips and decorate to your heart’s content with drawings, designs or your favorite quote.

Wednesday, 2/12 – Write a compliment or inspirational message on a post it and either give it to someone, stick it on their desk, or post it around the school.

Thursday, 2/13 – At any point during the day, read a book or a passage from a book that has a theme revolving around kindness. Talk to your child about how it can be applied in their lives. Create a Kindness Calendar during recess. Fill in all 31 days for March about different acts of kindness you can do each day.

Friday, 2/14 – Mix It Up Day! Start a conversation with a new friend today! Ask them about their favorite things, what do they like to do, where have they traveled. Wear RED to show kindness, love and compassion for all.
