Principal's Note

caps Dear Families and Friends,

June has arrived and we are looking at the final fifteen days of school. The eighth graders are ready for their next adventure (high school) and soon our new kindergarten classes will be coming in for their initial screenings. This is a busy time of year for us as we wrap up the end of the 2016 - 2017 year and begin to plan for the fall. Please be sure to check classroom newsletters and the school website for end of year events and times.

Many of you have asked about next year and who will be teaching what grade. Here is a rundown of the staff, to date. We have two additional hires that need to still be nominated by the school board on June 12th. More information will come after that meeting.

Kindergarten: Mrs. Hardy and Mrs. Randall

First Grade: Mrs. Staszko and Mrs. Girroir

Second Grade: Ms. Rushlow and Mrs. Martin

Third Grade: Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Ramsey

Fourth Grade: Mrs. Gitchell and Mrs. Quarry

Fifth Grade: Mrs. Sipler and To Be Announced

Sixth Grade: Ms. White

Middle School: ELA: Mrs. Gordon Math: Mrs. Lausier Science: Ms. Plotczyk Social Studies: Mr. VanStechelman

I would also like to welcome Mrs. Donna Robinson to our staff as our 40% school adjustment counselor. She will be seeing students and working with families starting next fall. She has just recently joined us and is getting to know staff and learning more about the school.

This summer there will be several big projects in store for the school. Our water tank will be getting some attention, the library is getting a face-lift and the music room will have the permanent risers removed due to age and safety issues. Both of these rooms will receive new flooring as well as paint. Our custodial staff will be busy cleaning, painting and prepping for the fall.

It has been a great year here at Chesterfield School. As I reflect on the events it is hard to believe everything that took place. I still gaze at the mural and am so impressed by the talents of our students. This is a masterpiece and a great reminder of this past year. I am already looking forward to next year’s residency. Could the circus be coming to town? Stay tuned.

I wish you all a restful summer with warmer temperatures and even fewer insects.  Be sure to visit the public library as they have a lot of great summer activities throughout June, July and August. Keep your children reading and working on those math facts. It won’t be long before you will see the fall placement letter in the mail.
