September 2018 Newsletter
It is the start of a new school year, to which we can all breathe a sigh of relief for one reason or another. Perhaps, our children are so excited to be at school that we are thankful they are finally back, perhaps we are a teacher and the unknown anxiety of the first day is now over, perhaps the routine structure of a school year helps the dynamics with our family, or in my case I breathe a sigh of relief because I see all of the many complex dynamics and the multiple volunteers fit together for a successful lift-off. Regardless of our position and interaction within the school we thank our God for the blessing of another year at CHC. While the start of the school year has taken off smoothly we would ask that all of us (students, teachers, administration and parents) continue to make the year as edifying as possible for all. To do this, we ask that you think of the following 3 words: Consideration, Honesty, & Commitment at all times. You will notice that if you take the first letter of each word and put them together you will get CHC - a helpful memory tactic. It is our desire that if we all work together to consider the results of our actions, if we are honest and discretionary with our words, and committed to the school and its principles, that we will have yet another wonderful and successful year.
