  • CHHS Drumline Visits GES

    The drumline welcomed students and staff to our Rachel's Challenge kick-off on Friday, 9/25. During the song 'Happy', CHHS students joined the GES staff as we danced and gave high-fives to our students! We appreciate how the high school students set a good example for our GES Stars and how they shared their talents with us. Check out this fun video taken of their time with us.  Thanks to their sponsor, Jeremiah Jones, for capturing the excitement!

  • Rachel's Challenge Kick-Off 2015

    On Friday, September 25, the GES students and staff gathered to kick off Rachel's Challenge for the year. This year's theme, Brightening the World With Kindness, was evident as you glanced around the cafeteria at all the bright neon clothing! Our wonderful counselor, Mrs. Horn, arranged for the CHHS drumline and the CHHS Peer Assistance Leadership Service(PALS) group to join in our assembly. The drumline did a wonderful job setting the tone for such an exciting kick-off event! Students watched a short video explaining Rachel's Challenge and the importance of recognizing acts of kindness and compassion each day. The PALS shared all about their 'Water is Basic' project and encouraged our students to look for ways to help out others at school, in our community and our world. It was a great message from students in our very own district! Both groups represented CHHS well and were great examples for our students.

    Mrs. Horn and Mrs. Hilcher spoke with the students about the importance of bringing positive change to the lives of others. They also had the privilege of introducing two of our own third graders who started Friendship Fridays at GES last year. These young ladies recognize the importance of having a friend to play with at recess. Their desire to include everyone while playing at recess, has led to their motto: Be a friend. Share the friendship. We will be honoring their idea by making an extra effort to include students in the friendship zone on both of our playgrounds during recess. The friendship zone will be a designated area that students can go if they need someone to play with while outside. Students who notice a peer inside this 'zone' will go and invite them to play.

    This year, we will be creating digital links rather than the paper chains like in the past. Students will simply scan a QR code and complete an online form in order to capture acts of kindness they witness while at school. We will be calculating monthly totals for each grade level and displaying them on the Wall of Fame in the cafeteria. Starting in October, the grade level with the highest number of links each month will earn a special recess with Mrs. Horn and Mrs. Hilcher!

    We are looking forward to a wonderful year full of chain reactions of kindness and compassion at Grapevine Elementary!
