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.
