Dear Families and Caregivers,

 Roots & Shoots kicks off at CHB for 4th and 5th graders! Roots & Shoots is a Jane Goodall Foundation program that teaches children to develop a service learning campaign that involves people, animals and the environment within our community. We will be developing one campaign for our school community with the help of parent Caroline Schestag. Interested in learning more about the program as a family? Go to their website at for more information.


  • First Grade Harvest Hoedown – Tuesday morning (11/26/19), our first graders will showcase what they have been learning in music class. First grade families are invited to the show at 9:15 and siblings will be called to watch as well. Get ready to be entertained!


  • Thanksgiving Meal Drop Off Meals can be delivered to school on Monday, Nov. 25th from 2:30 – 3:30 or Tuesday, Nov. 26th from 8:30 – 10:30. Thank you to all those who have signed up to donate.


  • After School Enrichment – If your child is participating in After-School Enrichment (ASE) this session, please take a minute to complete our survey to let us know how it’s going.  Your feedback is key in helping us plan for future sessions.


Want to join the ASE Committee? (Both large and small roles available.)  Or are you interested in teaching a class yourself? Please email Sarah at to get involved.
