CHIME is working towards a healthier school and will promote classroom celebrations that promote a healthy school environment. Please support the school in its efforts to show our students that it’s fun to celebrate birthdays and other celebrations the healthy way! Sweets are not being cutting out entirely (we will still have bake and popsicle sales as fundraisers), but please do not bring sweets and/or sugary items for birthdays or celebrations (such as Valentine’s or Halloween).
CHIME is also changing Valentine and Halloween Grams to non-edible items.
Please let the teacher know in advance if you’re bringing a healthy snack into the classroom for a birthday or holiday celebration. Here are some ideas for those special celebrations: Fruit & veggie trays, cheese & crackers, pita chips & hummus, bagels and cream cheese, wraps, fruit kabobs, fruit smoothies, popcorn cups, yogurt parfaits, banana bread, guacamole, frozen yogurt tubes with fresh fruit, pizza bites, etc. Also consider providing gluten/dairy free items for our friends with food allergies. For Halloween or Valentine’s Day, consider non edible treats such as pencils, stickers, or little games to hand out!
Also please consider bringing healthy items to the bake sales, and think about portion control (smaller muffins, fewer donuts). THANKS FOR HELPING KEEP OUR CHIME KIDS HEALTHY!

The CHIME Athletics Enrichment Program is a competitive after-school sports program. We compete against neighboring schools—working on developing sports specific skills such as strategies, fitness, and sportsmanship. The program is open to all students from grade 4 through 8. If you’d like to participate please fill out the attached form and return to the office by September 5.
CHIME students will be observing the solar eclipse this coming Monday, August 21. We have purchased solar eclipse glasses for all of our students and staff. They are NASA and ISO certified glasses. (The certification test results are on file with the office if any parent would like to review them.)
The eclipse is going to be a terrific learning opportunity for our students, but if for any reason parents would not like their child to view the eclipse, they should fill out and sign the affirmative opt out form attached and have their child return it on Monday morning. We’ll have an alternative activity planned for them.
Don’t forget to check out the CCA’s First-ever Online Party book here. So many great parties available for families or for a grown-up night out, so make sure to make a bid! The next one coming up is on Thursday, Dec. 22 and it’s an amazing 5-course holiday dinner from 7-10pm hosted by the Nazarian family in Woodland Hills; spots are available for just $25 each! Gets yours now!
Holiday Grams are now available for purchase in the office! Buy a cute holiday ducky for $2 each & send one with a note to anyone in the school! Ducky grams will be delivered to classrooms on Friday, December 16.
