Chichester Town Library News

 

The Down Cellar Writers will be meeting Monday, August 27th at 7 p.m.

 

The Knitting Circle meets on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m.

 

Donations of used books that are in good shape are always welcome.  Magazines, encyclopedias, outdated textbooks and any materials that are musty, moldy or otherwise damaged either do not sell or cannot be sold.  Thanking all in advance for adherence to these guidelines.  We recently had to find a way to dispose of multiple boxes of books and materials which could not be sold.  

 

The September 8th Down Under Used Book Sale has a theme of canning and back-to-school.  Because of the interest in the collectibles and vintage books, the one-half price sale is being extended for September. The library is also hosting a Farmers’ Market in conjunction with the sale.  A few vendors have signed up, but we hope more contact the library to register.  

 

The Humanities Council To Go is helping the library bring back a favorite program:  Dudley Laufman will play for, and lead attendees in “Contra Dancing, Then and Now” on Friday, August 24th at 7 p.m. at the Grange/Town Hall.  Because of its popularity, this program has brought out so many people that we have to be very conscious of the attendee limit of the hall.  Come early to make sure you can join in the fun. 

 

On Thursday, September 6th at 7 p.m., the library, also with the help of the Humanities Council to Go program, is sponsoring “The Vietnam War: Diverse Perspectives.”  It includes a 28-minute video with stories from a journalist, an anti-war activist, an author and combat soldier, a South Vietnamese refugee, an ARVN officer and several US Marines.  It will be facilitated by Suzanne Brown, who has worked with veterans and the staff of veterans’ hospitals for several years.  Ms. Brown has recently retired from Dartmouth College after teaching there for over thirty-five years.  Because of the anticipated interest, the program will be held at the Grange/Town Hall.

 


 

2018-19 Chichester Central School News

Submitted By Brian Beaverstock, Principal, Chichester Central School

 

On behalf of the teachers and entire staff at Chichester Central School, we hope you have had a safe and enjoyable summer.  We are looking forward to welcoming back all of our students for the 2018-19 school year.  The classrooms are in order, hallways are waxed and shined, and the school facility has recieved many important upgrades.  The teaching staff is gearing up for an exciting year of learning and growing together with our students.  All students should have received a “welcome” letter from their homeroom teacher which will list necessary supplies for the school year.  

 

Tuesday, August 28, is our first day of school.  Please look over the bus routes as some times and stops have changed.  Students should be at their designated bus stop at least 10 minutes before their scheduled time in the first week of school so we can gauge their pick-up time and bus route correctly. Parents who are dropping off their children can do so after 8 and as close to 8:10 as possible as students may begin entering their homeroom at 8:10 and the school day will officially begin at 8:15 AM. 

 

The lunch price for students will be $2.50 for K-4 students and $2.70 for students in grades 5-8.  More information including our school lunch menu will be posted on our website and on our google calendar. Please get to know our website and visit us often for information about our school.  Chichester Central School is on social media to share all the learning we are doing and keep families up-to- date with events and information.  Like us on Facebook!

 

Incoming kindergarten students are invited to an orientation to school with their parents and an opportunity to practice riding the school bus on Monday, August 27.  Please meet at school in our kindergarten entrance at CCS at 2 PM that afternoon.  The PTO will once again be hosting our fabulous Back to School Barbeque on Wednesday, September 5 at 5 PM.  SAVE THE DATE! Carpooling for this event is strongly encouraged as there is limited parking at school.  After everyone is fed, families are encouraged to meet the teachers and tour the school as part of the annual Open House at 6 PM.

 

Our school will be undergoing many exciting changes in 2018-19.  We are moving with the rest of the SAU #53 schools to competency based grading.  Assessing student work and progress at all K-8 grade levels and areas of curriculum will be based on individual competencies, or standards, and not by an average grade.  To better facilitate monitoring a student’s progress, we have also changed to a new student information system called ALMA.  As the school year begins, we will be sharing more information about the move to competency grading and how to access your student’s account on ALMA.  Visit our website’s page http://ccs.sau53.org/academics/grading/ for information now to get a head start. 

 

We had an amazing year last year with many changes and additions to our programs at school and I am eagerly anticipating another great year of learning for all at CCS.  Students in grades 5-8…be sure to complete your summer reading book and your summer reading assignment on google classroom.  Enjoy this last week of summer and please call the school at 798-5651 if there are any questions!
