Message from Head of School - June 6th, 2014

Dear Parents,

I’d like to use this last Campus Updates to thank the many different stakeholders that have made a significant difference and contribution to the success that occurred throughout this school year at CHA.  From the first play date at Grass Lawn Park to the Ice Cream Social, Roller Skating to the Book Fair and Fall Festival, the many Service Learning Projects to the Auction, to the Ski Program and Musicals, to the Science Fair and Field Day to the wonderful teaching that occurred on a daily basis, we are truly an exceptional school to have accomplished so much.

It is with great sadness that I say good bye to our 5th Grade class and those students who are moving on for many different reasons.  Oh The Places You’ll Go! You will forever be an important part of the HEART of our school community. I greatly appreciate your many contributions in the time you were here.

To those families whose last child will walk across the stage at the Moving Up Ceremony after being with us for the past 6 years, and will not have another child continuing on with us, I say, “CHA won’t be the same without your presence”.  I’d like to personally thank every family for their endless support over the years.  CHA will be forever indebted to you!

As with the end of any CHA year we want to make sure we have plenty of opportunities to spend time together prior to leaving for the Summer.  Please look for an invitation from CHAPTER to attend the picnic at CHA on July 15th and I’d like to thank Steven Daly and Brian McKinley and their volunteers for hosting another success CHAPTER Picnic.

Not to be outdone, Coach Mays is putting his spin on Field Day and that will take place on Thursday, June 12th from 9:30-2:30.  Both of these activities are great family events. I hope you will join us.

Our culminating event will be our Moving Up Ceremony on June 13th @ the Bellevue College in the gym.  We will begin @ 10 and will start seating @ 9:45.  After the ceremony, we invite you to join us in the atrium for cookies and punch.  Please remember that there is no transportation or childcare after the ceremony.  CHA will be closed until the morning of Monday, June 16th when we open for Camp Explorations.

It has truly been an honor to serve CHA as your Head of School.  Thank you for a remarkable year!

Holly Senaga
