A great way to celebrate spring! We bring together educational and fun experiences for CHB families that support our Environmental Science magnet theme. In past years, families have had the opportunity to build bird houses; to meet rescued wild animals; and to create art from natural materials, among other fun activities. Vendors provide information on making our home gardens “greener” and the benefits of composting and solar energy. Healthy snacks for all (organic snow cones anyone?) are always available.
Family Formal Dance Party
Our first Family Dance Party was a huge success and we can’t wait do to it again! There will be food, an amazing DJ spinning the songs of your choice (and keeping our kids entertained with games) and even a quiet room for families who need one! This year we’re encouraging everyone to dress up in their sharpest clothes for this “family date night”. (Of course, all are welcome to attend no matter their attire!)
For the Love of Skating
Come and skate with your family and friends! Typically held at the Clary Anderson Arena, this event is always a popular way for our families to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Holiday Cookie Banquet for Teachers and Staff
During the busy holiday season, CHB families bake cookies for our teachers and staff members to take home to their own families to enjoy during the holiday break. This banquet is a great way to show the CHB staff how much we cherish their hard work throughout the year.
When: August and throughout the year
These socials are designed to help CHB kindergarten families connect and come together as a grade. This year, the Kindergarten Team is planning a weekend playdate at a local park as well as a potluck cocktail/dinner party for parents and caregivers.
Martin Luther King, Jr. DAY ON of Service
This special program honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and involves the CHB community in a day of education, service, and reflection. Every year, CHB families convene in the gymnasium on this holiday and prepare meals for delivery to local homebound seniors. Kids participate in meaningful art projects and a scavenger hunt that teaches them about the Civil Rights Movement. We have started a Volunteer Hours Pledge Drive where families pledge community service hours in honor of Dr. King. The DAY ON is an event that is unique in our town, and we welcome assistance from all to honor Dr. King’s message of equality, hope, and community.
Hosted by our Fathers’ Group, the Pancake Breakfast is fun and delicious! The dads make the coffee, pancakes, and bacon, and everyone gathers in our sunny cafeteria for a feast. Come early as the food goes quickly! We will also be running our Book Fair at this event — more fun for everyone!
Parent Fall Party
Come meet new parents and see old friends at our 2nd annual Parent Fall Party! Details to come!
The Talent Show is open to students in all grades. Everyone who attends a rehearsal gets to perform. Needless to say, CHB kids are amazingly talented, and it’s a great thrill to see our singers, dancers, poets, actors, comics, martial artists, and magicians strut their stuff!
Teacher Appreciation Week
We love our teachers at CHB. Throughout this week, we stock the staff lounge with fun treats. On Friday we host a special luncheon for the staff featuring home-made dishes from our families.
Welcome and Farewell Events
When: September and June
The PTA celebrates the beginning and end of the school year in a variety of ways. First, we provide a Back to School Lunch for teachers a few days before school officially begins. On the first day of school, we host a Welcome Back Coffee for parents and caregivers. On a Friday evening in September, you can find our community at the Family Picnic – great fun for kids and adults alike! In June, we meet again at the CHB playground for an evening of BBQ, friends, and fun!
