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.


Summer Reading Projects

Summer reading projects are due Friday, August 18th. Students may complete two different projects or one project and dress up as their favorite character or scene from another book. There will be a contest to judge students on their costumes. One student from each grade level will win a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble. Students will receive a grade for the two book projects.


CES Open House

Everyone is welcome to attend Open House on Monday, August 7, 2017 and meet their new teacher. Kindergarten Open House will begin in the cafeteria at 5:30 PM. First through fifth grade Open House will begin at 6:30 PM in the classrooms. We look forward to meeting everyone!

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.

 


The Little Red Caboose

As many of you have probably noticed, the CES caboose received a new paint job over the summer. Once again our train car is looking good with its bright red paint. The caboose is used by different classes throughout the school year. Also, some of our reading volunteers take groups to read in the caboose. The caboose has heat which allows it to be utilized during the winter months. With the lack of air conditioning, we are limited to the times of the year we can use the caboose. Our PTO submitted a grant to Lowe's in the fall which would fund the installation of an air conditioning unit for the caboose. I am thrilled to inform you the PTO received the Lowe's grant, and an air conditioner will be installed soon! We are very thankful for all of our PTO parents that worked on the grant. We will have a ribbon cutting ceremony in the spring, and we hope you will be able to join us.


Pop Bottle Biographies

The third grade reading classes recently completed Pop Bottle Biography Book Reports. The students each read a biography of their choice. Then the students used a 2-liter bottle to create a bottle person from the book they read. Please click the link "Photo Galleries" to view pictures of the projects.
