Dear CFS parents this newsletter intends to:
Getting to Know Ms. Porter
Ms. Porter is our new Kindergarten & first grade teacher. She grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and has wanted to be a teacher ever since she was in Kindergarten. She loves to read and one of her most beloved children’s book is the “Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein. She really enjoys camping and being out in the wilderness. Her favorite thing to do is go on long trail runs and she also enjoys playing tennis. One of her favorite places to be is out on the beach! When she is not enjoying the outdoors, she is a huge fan of movies and TV shows. She loves to travel and her most treasured vacation is when she goes on a “Porter Family Cruise” with all her extended family. She adores dogs and they defiantly rank as her favorite animal. CFS extends a warm welcome to our new teacher!
Upcoming events info:
Every Friday from 8:30-9:00 parents are invited to a special time when all the CFS students come together in Ms. Porter’s classroom!

What is After School Enrichment?
The After School Enrichment (ASE) program provides extracurricular opportunities to our CFS students. The ASE tribe goal is to offer three different after-school classes, three times a year during the fall, winter, and spring for a total of nine courses each school year. Each session runs for six weeks. Classes usually meet after school once a week for an hour. We try to provide a variety of classes to appeal to our entire community of students. Some examples of classes that were offered last year include: art, drama, cross fit, baking, ocean in motion and pedal power a bike safety class. Students are charged a reasonable fee for the classes and some scholarships are available. Instructors for the classes include our CFS teachers, parents, and friends from the community.
We are excited to offer three classes this fall which will start in mid-late September. Stay tuned for details which will be sent home in your student’s weekly folder. Scholarships are available. Note that all scholarships are confidential, contact Chris Power should your family need one to participate.
