Great Things Are Happening Here! Join Our Journey

Dear CES Families,

I hope you had a wonderful fall break! We are looking forward to the next three weeks and making the most out of the time we have left in 2015! The next 14 days will be VERY busy! We plan to have our students engaged until the very last bell rings before Christmas break. You can help us make a greater impact on your child by making sure he/she is at school on time and stays the entire day. Research shows that a student who misses an average of 2 days per month has a greater chance of failing a grade or dropping out of school. While checking a student in a few minutes late or out a few minutes early seems harmless, the minutes add up. Please help us make EVERY SECOND COUNT!

Lil' Bison Stampede

The next time you are at CES take a look at our front drive!! The Lil' Bison Stampede is underway! For just $20 you may purchase a Bison hoof print with your child's first name and graduation date painted on the drive for everyone to see! Work has begun on this project and a BIG SHOUT OUT to all the parents that are making it happen!! What a great way to show our Bison Pride and raise money for the 5th grade Ocean Expo!
