**D.A.R.E.
In fifth grade, the students participate in a nine lesson program that teaches them how to resist pressures that may influence them to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Upon completion of the program, students will have a special D.A.R.E. graduation. Parents will be invited to attend. You will receive notification of the date for the ceremony. Officer Riff and Officer Sroka are our instructors from the Frankfort Police Station.

**Dear Parents/Guardians,
This week students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by FastBridge Learning. FastBridge is District 157-Cs new screening instrument that will take the place of AIMSweb. Similarly to AIMSweb, this assessment will be provided in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals and which students may require intervention. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math.

SIX FLAGS READ TO SUCCEED
Please consider having your child participate in the Six Flags Read to Succeed Six Hour Reading Club. The form will be sent home in their report card envelopes on Thursday, November 2, 2017. The completed reading log needs to be returned by February 1, 2018.

TYPING INSTRUCTOR
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
