At Chelsea School, we want to keep Halloween a safe and happy celebration. Here are a few guidelines for celebrating Halloween at Chelsea:
• Students are not to wear their costumes to Chelsea. They will have an opportunity to change into their costumes.
• Do not bring to school paraphernalia associated with the costume.
• We want to see student’s faces at all times. Do not wear masks or face paint to school or on the bus.
• Items that simulate weapons will not allowed at school or on the bus.
• Costumes that are violent in nature or inappropriate for the school setting will not be allowed at Chelsea.
• Any inappropriate paraphernalia will be sent to the office.

Thank you for helping us keep Halloween!


Curriculum preview for the week of October 23, 2017

Math: We are currently working through our third module in the Eureka math program. This module focuses on multiplication and eventually division. This week we will continue to multiply multi-digit numbers by one-digit numbers, using a partial product method as well as standard algorithm. We will also be working to solve multi-step word problems.


ELA: We will be wrapping up our first unit "New Beginnings.' This week will be taking our Literature Outcome Assessment which will cover such skills as theme, identifying character traits, as well as using context clues to determine meaning of words in a piece of text.

This week we will also have our culminating experience of New Beginnings Unit, as students will get to experience Ellis Island at Chelsea. Friday, October 27, students will do a simulation of what it was like to be an immigrant going through Ellis Island.

Writing: Our first writing unit will focus on Informational Writing. We will begin by learning how to take notes, paraphrasing, as well as looking at quality resources.
Our topic will cover Natural Disasters, with each student researching on a disaster of their choice.

Social Studies: We are studying the NE region and will be quizzing over the states and capitals of this region on October 26.
