Dutch’s Distinguished Readers is a program designed for Central Heights Elementary students to encourage good reading habits. Although our program focuses primarily on reading and encouraging lifelong habits of reading, we also encourage healthy habits of being good citizens at Central Heights as well as in the world around us. Each grading period names are submitted by teachers and adults at Central Heights for students to “adopt” one of Dutch’s puppies (a small stuffed labrador puppy) to take home with them to read to each night. Student’s names can be given for accomplishments in Reading, most improved reader, and for giving the extra effort to do well in school.
Please click HERE to see how you can be a part of this program by sponsoring the puppies!
Special THANK YOU to Mrs. Engle and Mrs. Thorn!
We are so thankful for everything that both of you do to make CHES such a great school! 💙

The Fun Run raised over $24,000! That is incredible! Special shout out to the PTO for planning and organizing this awesome event. Thank you to all of our corporate sponsors! We could not do this without your support. A HUGE thank you to our students who worked so hard running their laps. A large portion of the funds will be used to build a cover for the Pre-K playground.

Seamless Summer Option - Free Meals in School Year 2021-2022
CHISD would like to announce for the 2021 – 2022 school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance this year that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021 – 2022 school year. Please note that while this free breakfast and lunch program is available to us for 2021 – 2022, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022 – 2023 school year. During the first week of school, each student will receive a packet of paperwork that needs to be completed. While no application or eligibility determination process will be required for your student to receive free meals this school year, we are asking ALL families to complete the included ‘Socioeconomic Information Form’. This form will not be used against you in any way, as it is not used for any sort of individual qualification purposes. It is confidential and will only be used in summary for TEA to examine our CHISD school population as a whole. Our student population determines the amount of funding available to our school district and factors into our accountability ratings, so we need these forms completed to make sure our school continues to benefit from these special programs. Below is a letter explaining the ‘Seamless Summer Option’ in English & Spanish. There is a also a copy of the ‘Socioeconomic Information Form’ so that you can see what to look for.
