Field Study

Friday morning: K-1 to Turtle Bay!

School News

  • We are proud to call ourselves the Chrysalis family and work hard to maintain a kind, supportive, respectful community for  everyone. Thus, there are some basic standards by which we all must abide.      Prohibited behavior includes:
    • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol with children in or near your vehicle.
    • The use of physical or  verbal aggression toward any child or adult, including profanity or       abusive language or nonverbal intimidation. This includes physically  disciplining your child in front of others.
    • Spreading gossip or negative conversations that may undermine the positive atmosphere of the  school. If you have concerns, please address them to staff members.

This last one can be subtle but insidious. Just think about the problems that occur when children gossip or spread negativity at school. We always coach our students to try go resolve the problem directly with the individual they are upset with or get help from a grown up to do so rather than talk to their friends about it first and get a whole group riled up over something that might be a nonissue or a misunderstanding. We encourage ALL the adults in our Chrysalis community to be role models to the students in this regard and “THINK” before you speak and avoid gossip or negativity. We have this as a poster in the student bathrooms. 

  • Electives will be starting next week! There’s an  incredible line up with everything from Campus Maintenance with Mr. Casey to Chrysalis Rocks with Ms. Davis to 3D Printing with our tech expert Mr.      Eric. Thank you to all the amazing parents who volunteered to offer an elective to our students!
  • Also next week is the amazing Book Fair! What an  amazing way to raise money for the school and get books into kids’ hands. However, we need your help to make it happen! Volunteering is easy and fun.  Please please come and help. Use  this link to sign up.
  • The Shasta County Mini Maker Fair is coming to the Shasta County Fairground on Saturday, September 15th! Chrysalis is one of  the leading sponsors for the event because our core philosophies of science, inquiry and open-ended exploration fit so beautifully into this all day celebration of Making. Children and college students are FREE. You can get your early bird tickets online here: https://shastacounty.makerfaire.  Llok for a separate Parent Square coming up in the next few days to sign      up to help at the Chrysalis booth.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Dr. Irene is looking for leftover balls of yarn for her weaving and knitting elective. If you have any leftovers from your own  craft projects, please consider bringing them into the office. Thanks!

Fire Support

Emotional Support-Carr Fire Recovery Community expressions of grief are essential to the healing process and recovery from the Carr Fire.  Lynn E. Fritz, Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, in collaboration with a number of local psychotherapists is providing process sessions and support groups for those impacted by the Carr Fire.  All sessions are free, open to all they’ve experienced the loss or damage of a home or business, evacuation, impact upon friends/family/community or a loss of the sense of peace.  Sessions are first come first served and registration is suggested as space is limited.  All sessions are not faith based but held at Pilgrim Church, 2850 Foothill Blvd, Redding.  To register call Lynn E.
