CHA Sponsors Walk To School Day

Dear CHA Families,

It’s hard to believe that school has been in session for about a month already this school year!  Thanks for a great start to CHA’s fifth year of operation.  We are excited to have achieved our growth plan over the last five years now with programs ranging from child care to our first Senior Class.  As we launch into October we wanted to provide you with some informational updates which are outlined below.

Attendance rates and communication about attendance have increased across the school and we thank you for your support in this matter.  As a reminder, please call the main office by 8:30 a.m. if your son/daughter will not be in attendance.  Please also provide written documentation regarding the nature of the absence when available.  In addition, CHA’s revised policy pertaining to the use of cellular phones and other handheld electronic devices, which prohibits the use of these devices during instructional time, has been implemented smoothly.  Again, thank you for your support as we continue to strive for a focused learning environment free of distractions.

CHA will participate in National Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.  Similar to last year, we ask that parents that drive their son/daughter to school drop them off at the parking lot across the street from the baseball fields on East Airport Road.  CHA buses will also be dropping students off at this location.  Teachers, other staff members and volunteers will greet students and walk with them to school.  Richfield Township Public Safety will also be assisting to ensure a safe morning for all.

Finally, next week (October 17 – 21, 2016) will be CHA’s Homecoming and Spirit Week.  In celebration of this week, students will be permitted to dress out of uniform following a theme each day as follows.  Student dress must be clean and in good taste.  Hats will not be permitted.

  • Monday – Sports Day (Support your favorite sports team)
  • Tuesday – Twin/Dress a like Day (Dress the same as someone else)
  • Wednesday – Decade Day (Choose a decade, such as the 70s or 80s and dress accordingly)
  • Thursday – Storybook Character Day (Dress like your favorite character from a book)
  • Friday – Patriot Pride Day (Wear red, white and blue in support of CHA)

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.  Again, thank you for your support thus far in the school year.  We look forward to an exciting 2016-17!
