Due to COVID-19 we will have a designated snack break, but we will not be providing it.  We are asking parents to send a snack with each child this year.  Additionally, instead of the students moving from classroom to classroom, the teachers will be the ones to switch. The students will be in the same room all day.

Nursery care will be provided for infants or toddlers who are too young to participate.

PreK and all grade levels above are encouraged to attend.

The deadline to register is Wednesday, September 29, 2021.

The required planning meeting will be held the week of October 4th, 2021.  The exact date and time will be given as soon as possible. Teaching teams and student groups will be assigned.  Teaching teams will be provided with a list of suggested topics, ideas for their classes, or could come up with their own.

Our CHES Unit Studies are always an enriching and rewarding experience for both students and parents!  Please plan to join us!

Please list each student’s name and grade level (or nursery if infant or toddler) on the sign-up form.

Please indicate your 1st and 2nd choice for your role at the Unit Study.  We will do our best to give each parent their 1st or 2nd choice of assignments.  Please do not be apprehensive about teaching, as you will be on a team with other parents and the Unit Study is designed to be hands-on, interesting, and fun for the students and the parents.

Please be sure that your child’s cup is labeled .
