 April 3, 2008
TEACHER - IN - SERVICE: The next teacher - in - service is April 10 and 11 when our school will be hosting an     Alberta Conference training session. There will be no school for students these two days. Please note that April 10 is an additional school day off for students from what was posted in the school handbook. We have guest presenters   coming from California and Seattle and wanted to benefit from their expertise for an   extra day given the distance they are traveling. Please mark this change on your    calendars. Thanks.                  
ECS OPEN HOUSE: A Kindergarten Open House will be held at College Heights Christian School on Tuesday, April 8, from 10:00am - 11:15am. During this time, you and your child will have a chance to see how Kindergarten feels, and will enjoy a tour of the school, playing at centers, listening to a story, and making a craft. Mrs. Schafer will also be filling you in on the details of our Kindergarten program and answering any questions you might have regarding curriculum, scheduling, special          programs, etc. For more information, please call the school at 782-6212 or Mrs. Schafer at 782-6886.

YEAR - END GYMNASTICS PERFORMANCE: Please plan ahead to join us for a gymnastics performance on Monday, April 14th at 7:00pm in the CHCS gym. The students have been working hard this year and are eager to show everyone what they have learned. We would encourage you to take this opportunity to bring any neighbours, family or friends who might be considering having their children attend CHCS next year or in the future.
THE CHCS SCHOOL BOARD: gives notice of the Annual Constituency Meeting to be held on Tuesday, April 29, 2008 at 7:00pm in the CHCS gym. Various reports will be given regarding the operating and program of CHCS. Plans for next year will also be        discussed. Everyone is welcome to attend.

EDUCATION DAY PROGRAM: is scheduled in the College Heights Church for Saturday, May 3 during the 11:00 am church service. Most students will be involved in music, choral speech, prayer, skits, ushering, etc. The College Heights SDA Church financially subsidizes our school program to a great extent, so Education Day is, in part, our PR program to thank them for their support and to show them what the students are learning. For this reason, it is really important to have everyone participating, whether you regularly worship at the College Heights Church or not. To be effective, we need everyone present. Please plan ahead to keep that day open so you can attend, and your child can participate. Students will need to be available from 10:30 am to 12:00 noon. Thanks for your support.

SPORTS DAY: Our annual Sports Day is being held on Thursday, May 22nd. Track and field events will be held all day. Students from several other Adventist schools in Alberta, will be joining us so we may be hosting approximately 500 + participants. As you can expect, we will need LOTS of help (at least 100 people) to make this happen. Please plan ahead if you are able to help us with Sports Day and leave your name at the school office. Thanks
