Read-A-Thon!

read-a-thon

The school year may be winding down, but the library fun is just getting started!

We are in the final stages of planning an exciting summer reading challenge that we hope will offer some fun ways to keep our students reading and learning throughout the summer! We want this to be complementary to the summer reading programs in which our students may participate in the their own local library systems, and we will encourage them to make good use of those libraries! At the same time, we want to offer a great selection of literature for them here at the CHESS library.  We are excited about carefully building on our collection to that end.

In order to help us in this endeavor, we are kicking off our first ever Spring Read-a-Thon!

The read-a-thon will be fairly short, and the rules are simple:

  1. Students will ask friends and family to pledge a very small amount per page(or book or chapter) that they will read.
  2. April 15th-21st, students will read as usual. At the end of the week, they will add up their pages read(using record sheet)
  3. Students need to collect their pledges(cash or checks), which they will then bring to the front desk by April 30th.

**Everyone who participates will be entered into a prize drawing, and the winning grade will receive a reward of doughnuts one morning after the read-a-thon is complete.

Students can pick up reading logs and read-a-thon rules at the library, or print a copy here:

Pledge Sheet

Happy reading, and thank you for supporting CHESS Christian School and CHESS Christian Library!

Testing Reminders!!

TESTING-white
Reminder that this coming Tuesday AND Thursday (4/10 & 4/12) will be our TerraNova standardized testing.  Students participating in the standardized testing do not have to study or stress over this testing.  But here are some tips to help each student to do their very best:
  • Get good sleep leading up to the testing periods
  • Bring a water bottle
  • Bring a light snack for break time
  • Pack a healthy lunch
  • Pray with your child
  • Bring two number two pencils with erasers
  • 5th-12th Grade students should bring a basic calculator (not scientific calculator)
  • Bring a book to read (for students that have completed a section before time is called)
  • Do not stress or worry
  • Mints will be provided. Research shows that hard mint candy can improve test taking.  We like to share mints throughout the testing days with our students.

******Arrive on time to go to class room at 8:45 am.  Students will pray and then have testing instructions given in their first period class.  Please remind students that some students will be given room assignments (possibly different from their first period class)  at that 8:45 am time due to grade level and classroom space for testing times. 

Students and parents should not be stressed about the standardized testing process!   Please remember that test results do not define you, they are not your identity or the identity of your child.  Children have God -given gifts that are expressed in a variety of ways.  While it is important to take into account testing results they in no way define our worth or the worth of a child.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
