Skate Night & Uniform buy-back tonight!

Families, Don’t forget that tonight is Skate Night at Pattison’s West from 5-7 PM.   We’ll also be offering a uniform buy-back – if you have gently used, clean uniforms that you’d like to sell back to the PTA, we’ll pay you for them!  Just bring them with you to Skate night. Cost is $6.00 which includes skate rental ($7.00 for inline skates).    This isn’t a drop off event – you must remain with your child.  Stay and socialize with other CHE parents! See you tonight!

Great news from CHE!

Parents – We want to share some great news with you! We are growing…academically! During the last round of i-Ready testing in reading and math, Crescent Heights students grew across the board!  The scores in K-5 in both reading and math grew by at least 12%, and some by as much as twice that!!  That is something to celebrate!  Double-digit growth! While i-Ready is just one piece of data that CHE uses to look at student learning, it is verifying the growth we are seeing on other assessments.  Parents, teachers and students are working hard to help students grow.  WELL DONE!
