Dear parents, 

In November we welcomed Jefferson Drost, a local conservationist, to share information about bats with all students.  It was an informative workshop and students built bat houses to provide necessary and safe hibernation locations.  This event was made possible by our generous Home and School Association! 

December is always an exciting month and once again, Chelsea Elementary staff and students would like to invite parents and family to our Holiday Concert on December 19th at 8:30 am. On the last week before the holidays, there will be a special theme every day for students and staff. Make sure to look at the calendar included in this newsletter for more details.  I’d like to remind all parents to be conscious of any allergies in your child’s class during this holiday season.  If you are unsure, please ask either your child’s teacher or inquire at the office.   

During the parent-teacher interviews, the Home and School Association organized the Scholastic Book Fair and bake sale!  This is an important fundraising event for our school and provides supplies for the classes.  Thank you again to the Home and School Association. 

The Chelsea Value in December is generosity.  Whether it is the gift of time, friendship, or a physical item, teachers will be sharing with students the importance of giving to others.  We will also be raising awareness of the diversity of cultural celebrations that take place at this time of year. 

Wishing everyone a wonderful winter break and Happy New Year!
