CES Receives Donation from Modern Woodmen

Chickamauga Elementary School would like to thank Alan and Pam Brewster of the Modern Woodmen for their generous donation to our music and PE programs. They donated $900 to each program for a total of $1,800. CES will use this money to help fulfill the needs in each of these departments. Thank you to the Modern Woodmen for your support.

Butter Braid Reward Day

The morning was anything but typical here at C.E.S. The top Butter Braid sellers for each homeroom got to throw a pie at either Mr. Sikes or Mrs. Cassell. I have to say we have some students with a really accurate aim in our school. Mrs. Cassell was happy Mr. Sikes took the brunt of the pie throwing though. The students that sold 10 or more Butter Braids enjoyed an inflatable party today as well. Check out all of the pictures in the Photo Gallery.

Butter Braid Top Sellers

Congratulations to the top Butter Braid sellers! Jenny Beth Freeman was the top seller in the school. She sold 75 Butter Braids and raised $1,057.00. She received a gift card to Toys"R"Us in the amount of $125. Jenny Beth said she was motivated to sale because she would like to use the prize money to buy Christmas gifts for the needy. She is an amazing young lady, and we are very proud of her. Kylee Dockery sold 57 Butter Braids and raised $812. She will get to go on a shopping spree with a $100 gift card. Aubree Gottlieb came in third place for the school. She raised $732 and sold 52 Butter Braids. Aubree received a Toys"R"Us gift card for $75. Congratulations to these girls, and thank you to everyone who supported our fundraiser.

CES Receives Donation from Mesa Associates, Inc.

Chickamauga Elementary School received a gracious donation from Mesa Associates, Inc. This will allow CES teachers to continue to meet the needs of the students and support learning. Darrel Cross, Alan Janney, Jennifer Waltermyer, and Debra Stokey presented the check to Mr. Sikes and Mrs. Day. We would like to thank everyone at Mesa Associates, Inc. for the donation.

Grandparent's Day Parking

In order to better serve our visitors on Grandparent’s Day, we will be providing a bus to shuttle Grandparents back and forth Friday morning. Since we have limited parking available on our campus, we are asking that you either park only in a true parking space or park at the GLHS softball/baseball fields near the Helicopter Park. A shuttle bus will be provided.


In order to provide this service, we must keep both lanes of the horseshoe open so that we can accommodate the bus coming in and out the parking lot.  Feel free to drop off any guests at the front door and park somewhere else, but please do not leave your car parked in the horseshoe area unless you are in a designated parking area.

Peanut Free Zone

Due to nut allergies in our school, students are not allowed to bring anything containing nuts or peanut butter in their lunch boxes. Also, items containing nuts are not allowed in the classroom, including candy and snacks. This takes effect immediately. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions, you can contact your child's teacher.

Kids 'Can' Make a Difference: LOL Club Serves Community

The LOL Club, a children’s outreach ministry of Elizabeth Lee UMC, canstructed a flag out of 974 cans of soup, tuna fish, and PET milk donated by members of Elizabeth Lee.

This flag was assembled at Chickamauga Elementary School as a part of a community service project by the LOL Club. The food was distributed to families in the community and the Older American Center in Chickamauga which serves 140 seniors.

In addition to collecting canned goods, the children also bagged one-load scoops of laundry detergent in zip-lock bags. The laundry detergent was distributed to a domestic violence shelter and The Cottage. The Cottage is a residential facility serving children of Walker, Dade, Catoosa, and Chattooga Counties. It is affiliated with the Family Crisis Center of WDCC, Inc.
