5th grades read a story and learned about our “magic breath”. We talked about how our breath can help us through difficult times and can be a positive outlet for our emotions. They generated ideas like: turning sad thoughts into happy thoughts, meditation, helping us stay happy, helping us through stressful times, ect. Each student made a rainbow of ways that their breath can help them and used water colors to make their “magical breath”. 💜 ~Mrs. Beaudin & Mrs. Raville 
A fun compilation album of back-to-school pictures from CCS families. Send yours to a.trombley@chateaugaycsd.org and I will add them to the album. I think this will be a great memory.  More pictures
The students in Mrs. Blair-Wilcox’s class were given supplies to build a perch for Harry. They worked so hard and did an amazing job! 
A few pictures from the first day of school.
Our varsity teams will be helping the little ones at parent drop-off every Friday.  This week, our Varsity Girls' Soccer team helped get our kids into the building and to the right classrooms!  Next Friday, Varsity Volleyball will be helping and the following Friday will be Boys Varsity Soccer.  You will see the teams out there in their jerseys!  This is a fun way to connect our high school and elementary students.
5th Grade started the school year with a fun Hula Hoop Day! We participated in team building activities with hula huts and thread the hula. Then we had a rock, paper, scissor hula hoop hopscotch relay along with a contest to see who could hula hoop the longest. What a great start to the year! ❤️ Mrs. Beaudin & Mrs. Raville 
Thank you, Mrs. Jones-King, for these pictures from the first day of ice cream. What a wonderful treat. 
Thank you, Mr. Simonsen, for these pictures from recent soccer action. We appreciate you very much. 
There is nothing like opening day games at CCS. Despite this heat and humidity, the students came to play. Congratulations to the 9th graders!

The CCS CAPES Team held another successful school supply giveaway.  Pictured are just a few of our volunteers.  We would like to thank all of our student volunteers, teachers and administrators who came to lend a hand.  We would also like to thank Assemblyman Billy Jones for funding our giveaway again this year.  We were able to provide backpacks and supplies to over 200 students. We did run out of some items for high school students. We will be working to make these available in classrooms at the beginning of the school year.

Chateaugay Summer School kids were traveling again. We visited High Falls Park and enjoyed a hike to the gorgeous waterfall.  That was followed by a picnic, playground fun, and an ice cream treat. The weather was perfect for this fun day.

The Little Bulldog crowd took their last field trip of the summer to the local fish hatchery. We were lucky to be hosted by two of our own CCS alumni. Cullen Jones and Derek Ribot shared their knowledge and gave a great tour. There was lots of excitement when the biggest fish came out to greet us. We are heading into our final week of the program. Then a quick break before school starts in September.

Thank you, Mrs. McComb, for sharing these memories. 

The Little Bulldogs took advantage of the beautiful summer weather and visited Chazy Lake Beach.  The kids swam their hearts out and enjoyed the brand-new playground that the beach had to offer.  It was a perfect summer day!

From Mrs. Blair-Wilcox: The kids in Mrs. Blair-Wilcox and Mrs. Raville’s classrooms celebrated beach week.  We made leis, surfboards, picture frames, salt painting, and had a STEM challenge to balance a beach ball on a tower of index cards.  We ended the week with a yummy tropical fruit salad. 

That’s a wrap! The Little Bulldog Summer Program ended the season with a fun filled day on the field. We had an exciting morning with water balloons, hula hoops, and ping pong balls. The weather cooperated and everyone joined in the fun. We ended with a delicious ice cream treat. Special thanks go to Carrie Marshall for providing an array of treats to add to the ice cream. It was a big hit! It won’t be long before we are back in the halls to begin another school year. Thanks to the students and staff for an enjoyable, successful summer!

The Little Bulldog Summer Program took a trip to the Nicandri Nature Center in Massena on this beautiful day.  We enjoyed a relaxing nature walk along a well groomed trail.  Highlights included animal tracks, a bat house, and many nature scenes.  We then had a delicious picnic lunch, checked out the nature museum, and ended with giant lawn games.  It was a fantastic way to end week two of our program.

From Mr. Calnon: The Chateaugay Bulldog Basketball Camp is in full swing for boys week!  A record number of campers and coaches have the camp off to a fun and successful start. 

From Mrs. Dumas: Little Bulldog summer school is back in full swing this week. We enjoyed our first field trip to Burke Family Berry Farms yesterday. Many thanks go out to Kevin, Josie, and Quinn for their hospitality and for hosting a great morning in the berry batch. Students will have fun creating tasty berry treats in their classes today. We finished the day with a picnic lunch and some playground fun at the Malone Rec Park.

From Miss Summers:  What a fun first week we have had! We learned all about how different berries grow and the important things they need to help them grow best! After picking yummy raspberries and blueberries yesterday, today we used them to make a delicious fruit pizza!
