November is the month that we celebrate Thanksgiving and WE ARE demonstrating our gratitude at HOMS!
Attitude of Gratitude Challenge – Every student will receive this handout on November 1. Each morning during homeroom, they will write in something that they are thankful for and may opt to share it with their classmates.
Random Acts of Kindness – The display below is now posted to the left of the Cafeteria. Students will have the opportunity to take a card from one of the envelopes and complete the random act of kindness that is suggested, or come up with an idea of their own. Then, they can tell us about what they did by with this online form, and can even upload a picture of their “kindness”. The best entries will be included in the yearbook on our
“WE ARE…THANKFUL” page!
Chesapeake Public Schools provides a service for parents that enhances communication by delivering important information, such as delayed school openings or emergency closings due to weather, via SMS text messaging. This service is intended to enhance our existing means of communication and will not replace any exiting form of communication.
To participate in the new service you must register your mobile phone number. Registration is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.
