Thanks to all who came out to help with the car wash or had their car cleaned!  It was a huge success.  Everyone had a great time and helped raise money for the wonderful CHES PTA.  There was tons of fun, soap, and suds!



Our 1st Annual BACK TO SCHOOL BASH is planned for August 29th from 11am-2pm, and it will be held at the Outdoorsman on Hwy 11W.  We are looking forward to this event!  It will be open to all CHES students/families/teachers/staff!  We will be selling wristbands starting two weeks prior to the bash which will cover all the activities and food.  We will have outdoor games such as corn hole, horseshoes, etc., as well as bounce houses and slides. There will be tons of prizes for the kids, too!!  Please plan to join us for this exciting, awesome, and fun event!


2nd Annual Putt-Putt golf fundraiser


Our 2nd Annual Putt Putt Fundraiser will be held on September 26th from 11am-2pm.  We absolutely had a blast last year and decided to do it again!  Not only did we have a great time, we were able to raise a lot of money for our school!  All you can play for $5!  We will also be serving pizza, drinks, and desserts for a small price.  While we had a good turn out last year, PTA would LOVE to see even more kids/families/teachers/staff come join us!  It truly is a fun time!  We hold this event at Putt-Putt Gold on Stone Drive in Kingsport (across from Biggie's)  Door prizes are given out for each hole-in-one and every 30 minutes.  Hope to see everyone there!

CHES Teachers getting ready for an

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.
