Dear CHA Community,  

This weekend we come together in unity and celebration of our students.  As a result of the guidance, organization and leadership of committees by Sukriti Singhal, Tani Bhutani, and Jim Eastwood, we will enjoy a night to remember.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with this team, Sukriti has a 6th grade alumni and a current 2nd grade student at CHA, Tani has a 5th grade alumni, and Jim has a 7th and 9th grade alumni.  I’m humbled by this team and the fact that two of them who don’t have children attending CHA anymore still give of themselves to ensure our success.  When we share that we are family, it is not just for the time you are here, but always.  Our school would not be what it is today without every one of you.  Coming together as a community is what makes things happen.  Thank you for being a part of our family. 

Report Cards – We will be sending Report Cards on home on Tuesday afternoon via Jupiter. Please make sure that you have added [email protected] and [email protected] to your contacts or safe senders list in order that the notification emails make it to your inbox.

CHAPTER Updates  

CHA Auction Tomorrow Night! We are looking forward to a fun filled evening and enjoying the CHA community as we support our school.  Ubers/Lyft/taxis are highly recommended to arrive and depart safely from the event if you are not staying at the hotel.  We anticipate the valet will be busy and construction in the area will result in longer waits for cars.   

Auction Volunteers – It’s still not too late to lend a hand. If you can volunteer for any of the upcoming tasks, please add your name to the Sign-Up herePlease contact Auction Chair: Sukriti Singhal with any questions.    

Volunteers Needed for Faculty Appreciation Week.  Volunteers are needed next month to start planning and organizing the event.  The success of our parent sponsored events depends largely on the generous contributions of time our members give. Please contact CHAPTER Volunteer Coordinator Steven Daly if you can assist with any of the activities.     

Mom’s Night out at Jimmy Choo at the Bravern Rescheduled for April 19: More details to come. However, if you have any question, please feel free to reach out to Susan Archer at [email protected].    

CHAPTER Board Positions.  Please contact [email protected] if you’d be interested in participating in CHAPTER Leadership or Representative roles for the 2019 – 2020 school year.   

All the best,

Holly Senaga, Head of School
