Geography Bee Winner!
Congratulations to Micah Chambers who is the CES National Geography Bee Winner. He has already completed the test for State Qualifications and we will find out in March if he will get to represent us there. Winners of State go on to Nationals. After finishing the State test, Micah stated it was easy so we have high hopes he will move on. Good work Micah!!
Preparing for Pathways
Our 8th graders are getting ready to make that big leap to the high school. Now that we have career pathways at CCHS, Mrs. Lowther and Mrs. Mac spent time with students getting them to set goals and begin to think about which pathway they will choose once they get to high school. They each projected themselves into the future and then decided which pathway will help them get there. Take a look at their hopes and dreams. They are pretty ambitious. We all look forward to watching them grow and see where those pathways take them!
Examples of Student Work and Learning Everywhere!
Walking around our building, it’s evident that our students and teachers are busy. There are so many visual representations of all of the wonderful learning on the walls. You can find examples of conceptual units, culture, Explorations, and art. Check out our new beautiful paper crane installation! Come and visit us and just walk around the building. You will be impressed!
Choice Theory Refresher
On Friday, our longtime friend and Choice Theory consultant, Jerry Noel, visited many of our classrooms to provide a little refresher and reminder of one of biggest pieces of our philosophy. Students learned about the importance of their Quality World, Total Behavior and how we can stay in control, Personal Responsibility, and positive relationship behaviors. It was good for all of us to hear again and to deepen our understanding so that we can more easily apply these things in our everyday life.
Do you know what this is and what’s it’s used for? If not, stay tuned. There are some exciting things planned for this very simple green wall!
NAEP Testing is coming…
On February 7th, our 4th graders will be participating in the National Assessment of Education Progress or NAEP. Every year random schools are selected around the nation to participate in this test. It is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of the what our nation’s students know and can do in core subjects. NAEP is congressionally mandated, and was first administered in 1969 to measure student achievement nationally. Our students will take the NAEP for Math and Language Arts. If you are interested, the links below provide more information. If your child is a 4th grader, please help us out by doing what you can to make sure your child is in attendance day after a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast. Thank you!
