Reminders and Announcements:

A reminder from our Lunchroom staff:

Winter break is a great time for you to check your student’s lunch account balance.  Just have your student’s ID number handy (just ask them – they’ll know it!) and visit  You can load money on to their card at this site, and also apply for free or reduced lunch if necessary.  Thank you for keeping tabs on your child’s lunch account!

Need of gently used board games:

CHE could use some activities for rainy day recess! Any used board games, cards, activities that would work well for students indoors we would appreciate your donation. You may drop them in the front office for our playground supervisors. Thank you in advance.

NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition: We are still in need of food donations for the NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition program.  Did you know that we are creating more than 400 bags per month for our school community?  Please consider picking up one of the items from our NET HKC Food List shopping list.

Enjoy your Winter Break!
