Blue & Gold - CHARGER NEWS


We are excited to start the 2018-2019 school year! I speak on behalf of every staff member and say that our students have had a FABULOUS start to the school year. It is wonderful to have our halls filled with students and staff smiling, laughing, and chatting as they walk to their classes. Our 6th graders have adjusted nicely to middle school. There may have been a few wrong turns trying to locate classrooms (especially in the basement), our 7th and 8th graders were a great help as they guided our 6th graders to the correct stairwells and classes.

Our learning began on day one! Project Lead the Way is off to a great start. In our Design and Modeling class, students were presented with their first instant design challenge of creating a foot orthosis for a patient with Cerebral Palsy. In our Innovation and Makers class, students are beginning with the concept of “What is an idea?” This is going to be a great year!

I promise this will be the longest parent letter I write this year.

Band, Orchestra and Choir
Welcome back to our musicians! For students enrolled in 7th and 8th grade Band, Orchestra, and Choir, morning rehearsals will begin on Monday, August 20th at 7:30 am. Please see the Churchville website for the early morning bus schedule listed under Bus and Bell Schedules. 7th and 8th grade students may still sign up for choir online and we would love to have you join us! If you have any questions about choir, please email Mrs. Lindsay Sickinger at

For students in 6th grade Band, Orchestra, and Choir, they will be meeting daily as part of the school day, as well as once a week in the morning, with morning rehearsals beginning the week of August 27th. Choir will be meeting on Tuesdays beginning August 28th and Band/Orchestra will be meeting on Thursdays beginning August 30th. Students may also ride the early morning bus with the schedule linked above. If a student is enrolled in two ensembles, they will attend both rehearsals. More details will be given to your students this week during class. Mrs. Krause, Ms. Pagones, and Mrs. Sickinger are looking forward to a wonderful year of making music with your students!

Open House
We hope you are able to join us at our Open House on Thursday, August 23th at 6:30 pm in the blue gym to hear the teachers describe what your children will be learning this year. Our 7th grade parents are invited before Open House begins at 6:00pm, in the Blue Gym to learn about Outdoor Ed. We will be attending Outdoor Ed on September 18th - 21st in two day windows this year.

Carpool Lane/Drop-off Procedures
I have enjoyed being outside this week to greet students and parents and to help establish the practice of our drop-off/pick-up procedures. Please utilize these procedures every day. Please pull all the way past the signs to drop off your child. Please pull over to the right side (against the curb) for drop off and have your child exit your car on the right side of the car. Please do not drop off in the parking lot and have your students walk across the driveway. It is not safe. Thank you for your cooperation. This will make drop off in the morning much faster and safer. Pick-up in the afternoon follows the same procedures. By working together and following the above expectations, we will keep our students and staff safe. As a reminder, the arrival time is 8:05 for breakfast.  Students cannot enter prior to 8:05am. Students arriving at 8:05 will go down for breakfast until the 8:15 bell. The school day officially begins at 8:23. Numerous students are arriving at 7:45 am we do not have the supervision for early entry and we want to ensure their safety.

Chromebook Take Home Information
Continuing from last year, all middle school students will have the opportunity to take their Chromebooks home. Students received their Chromebooks yesterday. In order for students to take their Chromebooks home, please review the Chromebook Handbook with your child. An updated permission slip located in the handbook must be signed and returned to the library. Students will be unable to take their Chromebook home without a signed permission slip.

Fall MAP Testing
Students will be MAP testing on Wednesday and Thursday using their Chromebooks in the morning. Thank you in advance for making sure our students arrive at school on time and have eaten a healthy breakfast.

Cross Country
As the school year begins, we hope our students take advantage of all the different clubs and activities Churchville offers. We are excited about the high number of students joining Cross Country. Cross Country practice starts on Monday, August 20th. Our late bus will begin today, Aug 17th to accommodate our Cross Country meeting taking place after school. The late bus leaves Churchville at 4:25. Please remember we have one bus for the entire Churchville area. Thank you for your patience.

Website/Social Media
Please utilize our website as we work to make it as up-to-date as possible. Peter Cunningham, Assistant Principal, will keep our website current. The calendar in the right hand corner of the website lists all upcoming Churchville activities. If you scroll over the title, it will give you a description and more detail of the activity. We have also joined Facebook. Please “like” us at We are also on Twitter. Follow our school @ChurchvilleD205. You can also follow me at @themrsreeder. Please check out our hashtag #wearechurchville as we share our story throughout the day.  

Finally, thank you for giving us the privilege of educating your children. We are proud of our students, our school, and our community. We love working with your children and look forward to building a lasting partnership with our families.

Have a wonderful weekend.

¡Estamos entusiasmados de comenzar el año escolar 2018-2019! Hablo en nombre de cada miembro del personal y digo que nuestros alumnos han tenido un comienzo FABULOSO para el año escolar. Es maravilloso tener nuestros pasillos llenos de estudiantes y personal sonriendo y conversando mientras caminan hacia sus clases. Nuestros alumnos del 6to grado se han adaptado muy bien a la escuela secundaria. Puede que haya habido unas cuantas vueltas equivocadas tratando de localizar a los salones de clase (sobre todo en el sótano), nuestros 7mo y 8vo grado han sido de gran ayuda, ya que han guiado a nuestros estudiantes de 6to grado a las escaleras y las clases correctas.

¡Nuestro aprendizaje comenzó el primer día! Project Lead the Way ha tenido un gran comienzo. En nuestra clase de Diseño y Modelado, a los estudiantes se les presentó su primer reto de diseño instantáneo de crear una órtesis para un paciente con Parálisis Cerebral. En nuestra clase de Innovación y Creadores, los estudiantes comenzaron con el concepto de "¿Qué es una idea?" ¡Este va a ser un gran año!

Prometo que esta será la carta más larga para padres que escribo este año.

Lo mejor,

Gina Reeder

Sickinger quienes están esperando tener un año maravilloso haciendo música con sus alumnos.

Casa Abierta/Open House
Esperamos que pueda unirse a nosotros en la Casa Abierta el jueves 23 de agosto a las 6:30 p.m. en el gimnasio azul para escuchar a los maestros describir lo que sus hijos aprenderán este año.

Asistiremos a Outdoor Ed del 18 al 21 de septiembre teniendo dos días este año.

Procedimientos de Tráfico/Dejando y Recogiendo a sus Niños
He disfrutado estar afuera esta semana para saludar a los estudiantes y padres y ayudar a establecer y practicar nuestros procedimientos para dejar y recoger a sus niños. Por favor utilice estos procedimientos todos los días. Pase todo el camino más allá de las señales para dejar a su hijo. Por favor, acérquese al lado derecho (contra la acera) para dejarlo y haga que su hijo salga de su automóvil en el lado derecho del automóvil. Por favor, no los deje en el estacionamiento para que ellos crucen el camino a la entrada principal, no es seguro. Gracias por su cooperación. Esto hará que la dejada en la mañana sea mucho más rápida y segura. Recogiendo por la tarde siga los mismos procedimientos. Trabajando juntos y siguiendo las expectativas anteriores, mantendremos a nuestros estudiantes y personal a salvo.

Como recordatorio, la hora de llegada es a las 8:05 para el desayuno. Los estudiantes no pueden ingresar antes de las 8:05. Los estudiantes que lleguen a las 8:05 bajarán a desayunar hasta la que suene la campana a las 8:15. El día escolar comienza oficialmente a las 8:23. Numerosos estudiantes llegan a las 7:45 y no tenemos la supervisión para la entrada temprana y queremos garantizar su seguridad.

Chromebook Para Llevar a Casa Información
Continuando como el año pasado, todos los estudiantes de secundaria tendrán la oportunidad de llevar sus Chromebook a casa. Los estudiantes recibieron sus Chromebook ayer. Para que los estudiantes puedan llevar sus Chromebook a casa, revisen el Manual de Chromebook con su hijo. Una actualizada hoja de permiso ubicada en el manual debe ser firmada y devuelta a la biblioteca. Los estudiantes no podrán llevar su Chromebook a casa sin un permiso firmado.

Pruebas MAP de Otoño
estudiantes realizarán las pruebas MAP el miércoles y jueves usando sus Chromebook en la mañana. Gracias de antemano por asegurarnos de que nuestros estudiantes lleguen a la escuela a tiempo y hayan tomado un desayuno saludable.
