Remind Texts: To receive text message reminders for our homeroom, text @fb3c3h to 81010. I will send reminders for important dates and activities.

Birthdays are celebrated in numerous ways often with gifts, cards, and possibly a party. Please keep the following in mind when considering how to distribute birthday invites.

Invitation Reminder:  We never want to have a child feel left out or have their feelings hurt by not receiving an invitation to a party.  Even as adults, we know the emotional hurt from being excluded. 

This is why we highly discourage the passing out of invitations at school. The only exception is if you are inviting the whole class and the invitations are distributed by your child’s teacher.   Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent.  

Thank you for your cooperation. 

Please encourage your child to practice their typing skills on the Typing Instructor link found under Student Resources within the Chelsea Intermediate School web page. These engaging activities will help them learn keyboarding skills that will build speed and accuracy in a fun and challenging way. The students are aware of their user name and password

Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be presenting, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year. Our presentations will occur in November and January.
