The fence has become an amazing way for students to speak to the community about their view on drugs.  Simply stated "Don't Do Drugs" has become this year's motto.

CHES takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

Teachers took the plunge this week to bring awareness to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).  Students watched as buckets of ice and water were dumped over the heads of several of their favorite teachers.  It is our hope that through our efforts we can help bring a cure to this deadly disease.


Join our Pre-K Program

  play learn and grow together.jpg

We are doing BIG things in our Pre-K.  Since the start of our Pre-K program in 2013, we have grown by leaps and bounds.  We are very excited about the opportunity to host this program.  With the national curriculum getting tougher, students need to have exposure to school before kindergarten.  In our Pre-K program, the children will learn everything they need to be successful in kindergarten.

Please email Carol Briggs at carol.briggs@sullivank12.net if you are interested or have questions about the program.



Monday, August 3 - Students return to school.  1/2 day only!
