Blue & Gold - CHARGER NEWS

2/24/17

I hope everyone has had a fantastic week enjoying this unseasonably warm weather.

 

Our 7th grade students will be taking the Constitution Test next Tuesday, February 28. We will be encouraging students to wear red, white, and blue to celebrate and to make the day a bit more special (as well as a bit less stressful). It is a fun day to celebrate their learning and accomplishments.

 

We hope to see everyone this weekend at our 2nd Annual Churchville Volleyball Tournament. We will have nine schools totaling 32 teams playing 60 matches in three days! Please come out and support our Chargers for this exciting event.

 

As a reminder, Friday is Countywide Institute Day and it is a non-attendance day for students. Our staff will be having vertical articulation with York to increase coherence across the district.

 

​Have a wonderful weekend.

 

Respectfully,

 

Gina Pogue Reeder, Principal

Es un día de diversión y aprendizaje para celebrar sus logros.

Getting dressed up to attend a high school prom or dance can be a big deal. Sometimes, the cost of formal wear can be overwhelming. The York High School PTSA (Parent/Teacher/Student Association) invites young ladies to attend the “Say Yes to the Prom Dress” event at the sixth annual prom dress and accessory giveaway on Sunday, March 19, 2017, from 1 to 3 PM in the York High School Commons, 355 W. St. Charles Road, Elmhurst.

Girls ages 13 to 18 can select from more than 400 gently-used dresses in a variety of styles and sizes. Dress shoes, purses, jewelry and unopened
 makeup items are also available. Dresses are FREE, but limited to one (1) dress per customer. The event is open to the public and all Chicago and Western Suburban High School girls are welcome.

It’s not too late to clean out your closets and donate new or gently used long and short party dresses from homecomings, proms, graduations, weddings and other bygone events. Dressy shoes, purses, jewelry and unopened 
makeup also accepted. Donations can be dropped off at the York Attendance Office and/or at 300 S. Fair Avenue, in Elmhurst. Contact Marie Gall at tmkgall@gmail.com or 773.595.9158 with questions.

It is hard to believe that today marks the halfway point through the third quarter.  Our staff met this week to review our mid-year data. We were excited to celebrate our growth and create detailed plans for continued success. Individual student MAP data will be emailed home next Wednesday, February 22nd.

 

On Valentine’s Day, Churchville celebrated with the delivery of many student and staff purchased Candy Grams. Chargers had the opportunity to purchase these sweet treats and create personalized messages. The PTA, teacher, and staff volunteers worked diligently this week to organize and deliver over 2200 Candy Grams. It was a total community effort. The proceeds of the sale will go towards our next author visit. It is a very sweet tradition (pun intended).

 

A presentation from NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) will be embedded into the 7th grade health curriculum this year to increase student awareness of mental illness. The presentation, “Ending the Silence 101” is a 40 minute program that will take place during 7th grade health class rotations throughout February and March. NAMI shared the following remarks about their program. It’s a very powerful presentation for young people. The follow up surveys show that based on what students hear, between 3-14% are moved to get help for themselves or a loved one due to what they learned in “Ending the Silence 101”. We believe this is a prevention/awareness/education piece that will ultimately change the culture of the next generation, where stigma will no longer be the number one reason that prevents teenagers from getting help for their mental and emotional problems.

 

Mark your calendars for the 2nd Annual Churchville Volleyball Tournament, Friday, February 24th through Sunday, February 26th. We will have nine schools totaling 32 teams playing 60 matches in three days! Please come out and support our Chargers for this exciting event.

 

As a reminder, we are off on Monday in honor of Presidents’ Day.

 

Have a wonderful weekend.

 

Respectfully,

 

Gina Pogue Reeder, Principal

Es difícil creer que hoy llegamos al punto medio del tercer trimestre. Nuestro personal se reunió esta semana para revisar nuestros datos de mediado de año. Estamos emocionados de celebrar nuestro crecimiento y creando planes detallados para continuar exitosamente. Datos individuales del examen MAP de cada estudiante serán enviados a casa el próximo Miércoles, 22 de Febrero.

En el Día de San Valentín, Churchville celebró con la entrega de compras de Candy Gram’s por varios de estudiantes y personal. Cargadores tuvieron la oportunidad de adquirir estos dulces y crear mensajes personalizados. La PTA, docentes y voluntarios de personal han trabajado diligentemente esta semana para organizar y entregar más de 2200 Candy Gram’s. Fue un esfuerzo total de la comunidad. El producto de la venta se destinará a nuestra próxima visita de Autor. Es una tradición muy bonita.

Una presentación de NAMI (Alianza Nacional de Enfermedades Mentales) estarán incorporados en el plan de estudios de salud de 7mo grado este año, para aumentar la concientización de los estudiantes de la enfermedad mental. La presentación, "Acabar con el silencio 101" es un programa de 40 minutos que tendrá lugar durante la clase de salud de 7mo grado con rotaciones que serán a lo largo de Febrero y Marzo. NAMI compartió los siguientes comentarios sobre su programa. Es una presentación muy potente para los jóvenes, el seguimiento de las encuestas muestran que, basándose en lo que escuchan los estudiantes, entre el 3-14% se mueven para conseguir ayuda para sí mismos o para sus seres queridos debido a lo aprendieron en "Acabar con el silencio 101". Creemos que se trata de una concientización/educación/prevención de la pieza que será, en última instancia, cambiar la cultura de la siguiente generación, donde el estigma ya no será el número uno de los motivos que impide que los adolescentes obtengan ayuda para sus problemas emocionales y mentales.

Marquen sus calendarios para el 2mo Torneo Anual de Voleibol de Churchville, que se llevara acabo el Viernes, 24 de Febrero hasta el Domingo 26 de Febrero. Tendremos nueve escuelas por un total de 32 equipos jugando 60 partidos en tres días! Por favor salga a apoyar nuestros Chargers para este emocionante evento.

Como un recordatorio, no habrá clase el día Lunes en honor Al Día del Presidente.

Que tengan un maravilloso fin de semana.

Effective parenting promotes age-appropriate problem-solving. The coping skills that enable problem-solving unfold in normal developmental cycles. At each stage of a child’s development, new challenges create struggle that ignites new abilities. Sometimes, this growth enables the child to connect more successfully with others. Other times, kids are empowered to explore and learn. As they test their limits, an increased capacity for self-control evolves. As they move toward adolescence, these functions support independence and autonomy.

Sponsored by the Churchville Middle School Positive Family Support Program, this series of workshops are designed to help parents understand these normal developmental cycles and respond effectively to their children’s struggles. The first two workshops were held in January and February on the topics of coping skills and problem-solving skills. One session remains:

  • Tuesday, March 14; 6-7pm – “Parenting Strategies” – Based on feedback from the first two sessions, the presenters will facilitate role-play education to teach and model parenting strategies to situation-based challenges.

The presentations take place at Churchville Middle School in the MediaScape Lab, 155 Victory Parkway, Elmhurst and all are welcome. They are led by Katie McDougall and Steve Ritter, both Licensed Clinical Social Workers. Ms. McDougall is a former school social worker and Mr. Ritter is the Managing Director of the Midwest Institute & Center for Workplace Innovation. For further details, please click on the flyer below or contact Churchville Social Worker Megan McCarthy at 630-617-2244 or mmccarthy@elmhurst205.org.
