Music announcement:

We would like to give a shout out to grade 7 students for exhibiting ROCKS behavior in the hallways.  Teachers, please give stars to students for appropriate hallway behavior today. Students, you need 15 stars to assemble a team for the faculty parent student basketball game.

 

Seeking a qualified middle school student to recite from memory the Gettysburg address at the Naugatuck Memorial Day Parade Ceremony.  Interested students should sign up with their SS teachers. The selected student will walk the parade with our local dignitaries.

 

Attention all students…

Don't forget, on Thursday, April 12th, we will be hosting Dylan’s Dinner, a macaroni and cheese dinner in remembrance of Dylan Hockley, for whom Wingman was founded. Tickets are $5.00 each and available at all lunch waves and at the door. Raffle tickets will also be available for some cool and fun-themed gift baskets put together by the faculty and staff here at City Hill. So, make plans to join us at both of these events and help support out Wingman program.

Raffle tickets will be available at all lunch waves for our newest stuffed animal - a gigantic a caterpillar that someday we hope will turn into a Wingman butterfly! Tickets are 50 each, or 3 for $1.00

If you have any questions, see your Wingman Squadron leaders, or Ms. Laurentus and Ms. Rinaldi for more information!

 

Have you ever thought about participating in Unified Sports? Unified Sports is a program that pairs athletes both with and without disabilities together to participate in sports. Our Spring sport is track and field! Students will participate in track and field style activities such as running, jumping and throwing. Students interested in signing up for Unified Track should see Miss Nolan in B-4 or Mr. Tousignant in A-19 during morning homeroom or enrichment. Sign ups will run until Friday, 4/6. Spots are first come first serve! All are welcome!!

 

TENNIS INTRAMURALS:

Tennis intramurals will begin next week, Thursday, April 12th - NOT THIS WEEK.

 

  

City Hill Aquabots announcement:

On Friday, March 23rd the City Hill Aquabots went to CCSU to compete in the SeaPerch regionals. All teams competed amazingly well, competing against 10 other middle schools. Our only all-girl team managed to win first place with Matilda Kutschinski, Shravani Daptardar and Jaida Taveras showing amazing finesse and accuracy as they guided their underwater robot with precision through the obstacle course and challenge. The girls earned a place at the nationals in Dartmouth, Mass in June.

 

All members of the Aquabots did a phenomenal job and should all be proud they presented CHMS!

This is a safety message to all of our students to remind them that activities such as the Tide Pod, Eraser or any other challenge that may be harmful to you or someone else is taken seriously here at City Hill.  These challenges go against our ROCKS expectations when they require students to engage in unsafe activities or be unkind to others. Several students have stepped up to tell an adult about students participating in these and assisted us in making sure their classmates were safe. Great job!

  

  

Peer Partnership is running a bottle/can drive until April. Collection bins are in several 7th and 8th grade homerooms, staff rooms, and in the cafeteria. Please deposit only redeemable containers - which includes water bottles and soda cans.

Non-redeemable items are bottles without labels, milk cartons, sports drinks or juice containers, and iced tea products.

Proceeds will go to an end of the year field trip for the Peer Partnership Project.

 

 

 

Students are reminded that no headphones (either earbuds or Beat style around the neck) are to be out and visible during the day unless they are actively being used for an assignment in class. Also outerwear such as jackets, hoods, gloves, and hats are not permitted during the school day. Teachers please do a sweep in your homeroom right now and have any students with headphones, hoods, jackets, hats or gloves on remove them at this time.

 

It has come to the attention of the administration that students are using cell phones in the cafeteria. The expectation for students is that cell phones are off and away. This policy is also enforced in the cafeteria.  We hope we do not have to confiscate phones.  

  

    

 Let’s earn those stars.

   

 

We are raffling off a grey CHMS sweatshirt and this garnet Naugy sweatshirt.  Five stars equals 1 raffle ticket. We are also raffling off gift cards.

 

 

 

 

REBOOT FOR RESPECT AND SAFETY

At the beginning of the year, we delivered lessons outlining the expectations for our CHMS Rocks in various settings.  One of the areas we reviewed was appropriate hallway behavior. The expectations is that students will walk to the right side of the hallway and keep hands and feet to themselves.  Teachers, we are asking that you reinforce appropriate hallway behavior with stars this morning and throughout the day.

 Additionally, cell phones are powered off and away, ear buds are out of sight, and hoods and hats are off.   

 

Students who stay for a sporting practice or event must have a ride for the end of practice. Students who wish to stay for a sporting event should present their coach or advisor with a note from their parent indicating parental permission was granted.
