Welcome to Cheldelin

What’s New at Cheldelin?

Have You Donated to IMPACT Cheldelin Yet?

At the end of our first week of the campaign, our students have broughtimpact thermometer in over $3,000 in donations.   This is an average of $60 per student who participated.  Our goal is to earn over $50 for all students ($25,000 total) to support Cheldelin enrichment opportunities and library improvements.  More information about IMPACT Cheldelin, including copies of the donor cards, the parent letter, and links to donate, can be found on our website at:  https://cheldelin.csd509j.net/index.php/impact-cheldelin/


This year we are trying something new.  Instead of mailing home Progress Notices at mid-quarter, we are asking parents to specifically check their student’s grades around the middle of the quarter (and any other time you like, of course!)

Teacher Gradebooks will be up-to-date by Tuesday, 10/20/15 at 9 am.  You will receive a reminder by text.  In addition, Parent-Teacher Conferences are right around the corner.  If you wish to speak with your child’s teachers, and particularly if you have concerns over their academic progress, you may either call and schedule conferences or plan to attend the drop-in conferences.  The Parent-Teacher Conference schedule is listed below.

If your student is receiving a D or F in any class, you will be notified via text, and we strongly encourage you to call for Conference appointments.

If you need assistance with logging in to Pinnacle, feel free to call Annette at 541-766-4820.

Check Out Cheldelin’s Parent Organization (CPO)

Are you looking for a way to feel more connected to what’s going on at school? Do you have time or talents that you could lend to our children’s school? Are you interested in fundraising? Would you like your voice heard? Do you have input about how CPO’s budget is spent? Would you like to know what type of activities our fundraising supports for Cheldelin’s students? Are you interested in bettering the Cheldelin community?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, please join us for the first CPO meeting of the year: Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:00 p.m. in the Cheldelin library. Better yet, join us every first Tuesday of the month for CPO meetings. Mr. Brew, our Principal, is always part of the meetings and gives a informational report. If you cannot make the date, there are other ways to be involved and help. Watch the newsletter and Listserv for volunteer opportunities. Monthly meeting minutes are posted on Chel-delin’s website under “For Parents/Cheldelin Parent Organization (CPO).” Please consider being part of the supportive parent net-work at Cheldelin.

Pinnacle Gradebook is Live!

Under the For Parents tab above, select Access Pinnacle then look for the big blue button that says Check Pinnacle Here.  Log in and you’re good to go.

Cheldelin in the News

Check out this story in the Gazette-Times about our work with AVID: http://www.gazettetimes.com/news/local/corvallis-teachers-return-to-the-classroom/article_12e5e122-3a2e-5b9d-b3c7-1376a8c19a7f.html

Just a reminder that now is the time to make sure your child’s immunizations are up-to-date. State law requires that all children in public schools either have vaccinations or a medical / non-medical exemption. The State of Oregon Immunization Exclusion date is Feb. 17, 2016. Any stu-dent who has not completed the required vaccines by that date will not be allowed to come to school until they’ve been vaccinated. Notices will be sent home in the next month, notifying parents if their son/daughter is missing a vaccine. If you have any questions, please contact Diane Nicol, Cheldelin Health Assistant, at 541-757-3868.
