Planner Signatures

 Image result for congratulations

Today marked one of many milestones between now and high school for 8th graders. Students who have consistently demonstrated their ability to manage their materials and homework were given the opportunity to practice doing the same without adult supervision. These students received a slip to place in their planner that allows them to not get their planner signed by teachers or parents. 
If at any point they have missing homework, this privilege will be rescinded. 

Students who are not quiet ready at this point will have another chance after Spring Break.

Winter Break

 Believe it or not, winter break is only 2 days away. This year is flying by and I'm sure everyone is ready for a hard earned break for all things school. The staff met on Friday and decided to assign no homework over the break other than daily reading. With school being a front and center item in your home for the last several months, we wanted everyone to have a chance to put away their computers and just enjoy the season. 

I wish you all a very happy holidays and a bright and healthy New Year.

Turkey Trot


Our biggest fundraiser every year is our PTA's fall jog-a-thon! This year we are excited to get everyone involved from home on November 24th-29th. In the next few weeks, please talk to your friends and relatives about donating to support the school. The pledge sheet can be printed out or done electronically. Then plan to run, walk, jog, skip, or bike ride. Take a break outside! Make it a family event! Go in costume or take it seriously! Complete 5K for a medal! Show off with a 10K or a 1/2 marathon! Challenge another family to a virtual fitness competition! And be sure to take pictures and send them in. 

"Turkey Trot" Donations can be made through Venmo (@CascadeHeightsPCS-PTA) or Cash App ($CHPCSPTA) or we are scheduling a day in December to drop off checks or cash donations. 

The money raised goes to buy all the extra supplies that we are sending home! Every year 8th grade uses the generous PTA budget to buy all of the fun hands on items we use including the things that have been coming home. So please consider donating and allowing our programs to flourish. 

The goal is $15,000 so that we can support our 9 classroom teachers, 2 world language classes, Music, Art, PE, and our Resource Room with the supplies that make learning at CHPCS hands-on, engaging, creative, and interesting!

 The Town Hall debate was a huge success and all of the candidates were incredibly well spoken and professional. 

After elections were held this morning, Katy and Bailey were chosen to be our class President and Vice President.
