We’ve offered individual instrument lessons as well as classroom instruction for longer than most schools in the area have been around!
P.S. Mrs. Peck teaches more than just the trombone. There’s piano and many other instruments. Why don’t you ask her about it?

FROM THE DESK OF Patricia D. King, Principal
Dear CES Parents/Guardians:
Fall is an exciting time at CES as we hold our first Book Fair, cross country meet, celebrate Fire Prevention week, and look forward to holiday dances and candy.
As we leave September and thoughts of the beach I’d like to leave you with a few images from the start of the year.
Students who turned their summer reading logs in to Mrs. Haynes were invited to a Popsicle Party. The celebration recognized students who kept their brains reading ready over the summer months. There was music, dancing, a shared story and of course popsicles. The students and their teachers had a wonderful time.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT CHAPLIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Chaplin Elementary School is dedicated to broaden our lines of communication with our school families and the community. CES is now on Facebook. Search for us on Facebook for general information, news, and events. Our school website has also gotten a renovation so we may bring your news from the classrooms on a regular basis.
It is our goal to become paperless when it comes to sending our information to you. Over the next few months you will be able to keep track of all flyers and handouts on a special tab on school website, chaplinschool.org . More information on how this feature can be used will be coming to you over the next few weeks.
NOTICES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Monthly PTO meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm. All parents and guardians are welcome to attend and participate. The goal of the PTO is to support the educational environment of children at CES by fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers. There are many ways to put your time and talent to good use to support our children’s learning.
School will be closed October 9th and 10th for Columbus Day observance and teacher professional development.
SAVE THE DATE – November 1st, 2017 – CES 25th Anniversary of the school’s dedication and Time Capsule opening. Did you know a time capsule was buried on the school grounds in 1992? There is and it is scheduled to be opened on November 1st of this year! A number of staff members and community members are working to put together a celebration fit for such a grand occasion. Our current students are working to create material to be placed in a new time capsule that will be buried for future generations for Chaplin students to unearth in the year 2042. Details will be coming home over the next few weeks.
The Chaplin Elementary School community had been pulling together to beautify the grounds and building at the school this summer. On August 7th a mighty group of committed individual braved the threat of bad weather to work on cleaning up the pre-K gardens and the Water Garden. The work will continue into the school year and will include work on the greenhouse and indoor painting.
