Letter from Charlie Carroll 3/11/2013:
March 11th, 2013
Dear Sixth Grade Parents,
As we get closer to April, and the weather heats up, thoughts turn to our sixth grade outdoor experience at Chewonki. The dates for this year’s trip are April 29 – May 3. Attached are the materials to get started in the Chewonki process.
After all fundraising efforts, the cost of the trip this year is $163.00. Checks should be made out to CEMS and may be dropped off at the main office. The deadline for families to pay the $163 is April 1, 2013. Payment plans and hardship (partial or full scholarship) cases may be arranged through the school guidance department by contacting Kim Sturgeon (firstname.lastname@example.org). Requests for hardship assistance must be made through Kim Sturgeon so that the school can accurately determine program costs. Families may arrange monthly payments.
The health form should be completed and turned in to your child’s homeroom teacher by March 22 . Please make sure that the tetanus immunization is up to date. Our school nurse will carefully examine these forms and Chewonki staff will be made aware of all health concerns. Along with the medical form is an equipment and clothing list put together by the Chewonki Foundation. All of this information can also be found on the CEMS Chewonki website: https://sites.google.com/a/capeelizabethschools.org/chewonki/ or at the Chewonki website: http://www.chewonki.org/
In preparing the students for their Chewonki experience, an informational meeting will be held for them, during school, on the afternoon of April 3. A representative from the foundation will give a slide show covering the facilities and activities offered at Chewonki. Students will also witness a packing demonstration during the session.
After school, on April 3rd, the Chewonki spokesperson and Mr.Carroll will be available to meet with parents who had specific medical concerns or special information they need to share about their child that goes beyond what the medical form is able to communicate. These confidential meetings will be held in the Madden Conference Room of the Middle School Library starting at 2:45 p.m. on a first come, first serve basis.
That same evening (April 3), at 6:30 p.m. in the Middle School Band Room, the Chewonki representative will present the same slide show and packing demonstration for parents along with a question and answer period. Parents in past years have found this session to be informative and helpful in gaining a better understanding of the Chewonki program. I hope to see you there. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
