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!

Volunteer Help needed tomorrow: Popcorn Friday

Families: We are in need of a couple more helpers tomorrow morning for our Popcorn Friday. Popcorn Fridays are a big hit with the kids (who doesn’t love Popcorn?) but it’s also for a greater purpose:  funding from our Popcorn Fridays goes to support 5th grade camp scholarships to help ensure that every 5th grader can attend camp next month!  It’s a pretty quick & easy task, but we need the helping hands to pull it off.  If we don’t have the volunteers for it, then we have to cancel. If you’re able to help from 9 -11 or 11...
