On Wednesday, April 3, 2013, Bill Kelly, Chief Meteorologist from Channel 6, visited the third graders of Chieftain Elementary. Mr. Kelly was invited to visit and do a “lunchbox” presentation to our third graders. Of course, the presentation was about the different types of weather, and what makes weather occur differently. Students were given small demonstrations on why fog occurs, clouds, rain, and many types of precipitation experienced in Ohio.
Chieftain Elementary held their annual Family Literacy Night on Wednesday, December 5th, following the monthly PTO meeting. For the past several years Chieftain has offered an evening of crafts, music, refreshments and free books to our students and their families. Last year we conducted a Gingerbread house auction to raise money for Chieftain’s adoption of several families to help with their Christmas expenditures.
Two classes (Mrs. Georgia Johnson and Mrs. Rachel Kallimanis) from Chieftain Elementary received permission from neighbors of Chieftain Elementary to walk through their yards to get to Walker's Pumpkin Farm. While at the farm, the classes took hay rides, went through the corn maze, and each student selected a pumpkin to take home. The classes finished the day with lunch in the barn, before Mr. Walker drove them to the end of the field for one last hay ride before returning to the school.
During the month of December, Chieftain Elementary raised over $1800.00 to help many Chieftain families with their Christmas. Money was raised by donation, and a very lucrative Gingerbread House auction, which took place during our Family Literacy Night. It was so exciting to watch our parents and students get into the auction. It became a bidding war with the ultimate winner being our Chieftain families.
Chieftain Elementary teachers were treated to cookies, fruit and $1000.00 worth of Wal-Mart Cards from the Logan Wal-Mart on Monday, October 31st. Wal-Mart assistant store manager, Dave Driscoll, awarded ten lucky teachers with 100 dollar gift cards to purchase items that will benefit their classrooms. It was a great way to start the week. Thank you to Wal-Mart for their generosity and their continuing support of education in the Logan Hocking Local School District.
Recently Chieftain Elementary was awarded their Plaque of Excellent with Distinction from Superintendent, Stephen Stirn, and school board member Corby Leach.
The children were all present at the assembly and became quite excited when Mr. Stirn promised them all ice cream for their great accomplishment.
Nothing can end hunger in Ohio. At least, that’s the Southeastern Ohio Food Bank’s new campaign to raise money to help feed hungry families, and students at Chieftain Elementary have decided to help.
The Nothing Campaign — led by the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks (OASHF), Charter One and the state’s regional food banks — is designed to sharply make the point that “nothing” is what many families have to eat. To drive the point home, cans of “Nothing” are being sold throughout ...
Dawn Cisco’s first-grade class at Chieftain Elementary is engrossed in a music and sign language performance Tuesday. Musical training has been found to improve how the brain stores and processes information and, therefore, can be an important part of a child’s education.
