I hope everyone has had a fantastic week enjoying this unseasonably warm weather.
Our 7th grade students will be taking the Constitution Test next Tuesday, February 28. We will be encouraging students to wear red, white, and blue to celebrate and to make the day a bit more special (as well as a bit less stressful). It is a fun day to celebrate their learning and accomplishments.
We hope to see everyone this weekend at our 2nd Annual Churchville Volleyball Tournament. We will have nine schools totaling 32 teams playing 60 matches in three days! Please come out and support our Chargers for this exciting event.
As a reminder, Friday is Countywide Institute Day and it is a non-attendance day for students. Our staff will be having vertical articulation with York to increase coherence across the district.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Espero que todos hayan tenido una semana fantástica disfrutando de un tiempo anormalmente cálido.
Nuestros alumnos de séptimo grado toman la prueba de constitución el próximo Martes, 28 de Febrero. Estaremos alentando a los estudiantes de vestirse con el color rojo, blanco y azul para celebrar y hacer que el día sea un poco más especial (igual para que sea un poco menos estresante). Es un día de diversión y aprendizaje para celebrar sus logros.
Esperamos ver a todos este fin de semana en nuestro 2mo Torneo Anual de Voleibol de Churchville. Tendremos nueve escuelas por un total de 32 equipos jugando 60 partidos en tres días! Por favor salga a apoyar nuestros Chargers para este emocionante evento.

Effective parenting promotes age-appropriate problem-solving. The coping skills that enable problem-solving unfold in normal developmental cycles. At each stage of a child’s development, new challenges create struggle that ignites new abilities. Sometimes, this growth enables the child to connect more successfully with others. Other times, kids are empowered to explore and learn. As they test their limits, an increased capacity for self-control evolves. As they move toward adolescence, these functions support independence and autonomy.
The presentations take place at Churchville Middle School in the MediaScape Lab, 155 Victory Parkway, Elmhurst and all are welcome. They are led by Katie McDougall and Steve Ritter, both Licensed Clinical Social Workers. Ms. McDougall is a former school social worker and Mr. Ritter is the Managing Director of the Midwest Institute & Center for Workplace Innovation. For further details, please click on the flyer below or contact Churchville Social Worker Megan McCarthy at 630-617-2244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
