The new dance/PE program is intended to encourage students to be physically and mentally active. Students will focus on seven key areas of physical discipline: rhythm, balance, coordination, endurance, flexibility, strength, and concentration.

Visual Arts

The visual and integrated arts program is intended to teach students to recognize and use arts as a form of creativity and communication; to know and apply elements of art and expressive features, and help students relate art to various historical and cultural traditions

School Library

The school library welcomes all community members. Every child at Cheltenham is able to check out books. We would appreciate your help in making sure books are kept in a clean and safe place. Please assist your child in returning the books in a timely manner. The library is open to the community daily 3:00-3:30 p.m. Computers are also available for community use. If you are interested in getting a library card, please stop by the library and complete form.

Technology Computer class means more than teaching basic computer skills and software programs these days. Integrating technology into everyday learning will help students acquire the skills they need to survive in a complex, highly technological knowledge-based society. At Cheltenham, aside from the school computer lab, also available for all grades ECE-5 are chromebooks, iPads, digital cameras, and Promethean boards. All classes are encouraged to utilize these tools for research, typing, projects, virtual learning experiences, and so much more. With technology, the learning possibilities are endless!
