Jacki Skole is an author and has most recently published  the book Dogland. Ms. Skole is currently collecting dog stories, poems and reflections from children.  She hopes to publish them in a "coffee table" book and donate all the proceeds to the Homeless Pets Foundation.  

Last year's 4th and 5th graders were able to write a piece about their dogs or desire for a dog in Mrs. Earnest's writing lab class.  Cheatham Hill had 18 entries selected for Ms. Skole's blog.

Dr. Alicea was also honored in February as Staff Member of the Month. She and her husband, Edwin, have been married for 34 years and have one son, Nicholas.

Please note:

Effective September 7, 2010, students will not be permitted to return to classrooms after 2:45 pm to retrieve forgotten items such as homework, lunch boxes, book bags, etc. Teachers may leave the campus at 2:45 pm, therefore sending students to rooms without someone present is a concern for our staff and for the security of our students. Please be advised that ASP workers and custodians will no longer be able to unlock classrooms for parents or students. Until students become acclimated to this procedure, we will provide daily reminders on the afternoon announcements.
