First Day of School - August 21, 2019 

Welcome to Chippewa!
Recognition Assembly
First through third grade students enjoyed participating in our end-of-the-year Recognition Assembly.  Students were recognized and acknowledged for academic successes, improvements in physical education, good behavior throughout the year, and participation in a variety of school leadership roles.
Earth Week
 Can you tell from this picture what week we are celebrating at Chippewa?  You guessed it; it's Earth Week!  Thanks to our PSO and parent volunteers, students have been able to enjoy learning about Mother Earth as well as participate in many other activities including a visit from a naturalist along with a great horned owl, and creating bird feeders for their homes.
One School, One Book Comes to a Close
Students, staff, and families have enjoyed reading our One School, One Book story of Spring According to Humphrey.  Culminating activities today included jugglers from Case Western Reserve University and students dancing their way out of the gym to the Hamster Dance.  Thank you to everyone who participated in our Signs of Spring bulletin board, Family reading pictures, and all the fun!

Chippewa Wax Museum
Third grade students completed a biographical research project which culminated with a Wax Museum which was visited by parents, family members, and Chippewa students.  The third graders posed until someone touched their "play" button and then came to life as the person they researched to share their newfound knowledge.
Second Grade Forces and Motion STEM
Second graders will take part in a Forces and Motion STEM rotation over the next few weeks.  Activities focus on building marshmallow launchers, creating marble tube runs, and many more hands-on activities to reinforce curriculum.
Spring According to Humphrey
 This week kicked off our One School, One Book family reading of Spring According to Humphrey!  Each family received a copy of the book along with a bookmark noting the dates each chapter is to be read.  Along with the story, please feel free to check out our website that compliments the book with many activities!
Three Little Pigs STEM
Kindergarten students used their knowledge of the Three Little Pigs to participate in a STEM project creating a house that the big, bad wolf could not blow down.  Students worked with partners to problem solve and create their masterpieces.
February Dance Party
The dance party was such a fun reward for the students a few months ago, we decided to bring it back again!  Students who earned their "Bee Your Best" reward for February participated in an energetic dance party in the gym!

Cockroaches, Jaw Bones, and Mice, oh my!
Students engaged in activities this week during our latest Science Discovery Zone!  This DZ Day focused on animal classifications and understanding why animals have the parts they do.  Students held cockroaches, touched mice, and examined a variety of animal parts such as bones, feathers, pelts, and more.  Thank you to Mrs. Claridge and our always wonderful parent volunteers for making Science DZ days possible!
STEM in Action
Third graders tie STEM and science content standards together as they study rocks and minerals.  Using a variety of types of candy and cookies as rocks and minerals, students create formations that demonstrate how sedimentary rock is formed, then apply pressure to show how it can change over time.
Making sure that your son or daughter comes to school with all the supplies he or she needs will help ensure a smooth start to the school year. Please mark each item with your child’s name. Kindergarten parents should bring the school supplies to the phase-in appointment. Students in grades 1-4 should bring their school supplies to Meet the Teacher Night.
