Greetings CES Families,

20 minutes/night for any 4 days of the week, as a special family reading time. Here's an interesting newsletter talking about the benefits of reading to your child each day for a few minutes.

Parent conferences are coming soon, Oct 7-11. School will be dismissed at 1:00 each day. . Please do your best to attend - we are striving for 100% attendance. Teachers will be working to schedule siblings close together next week. Please be on the look out for a scheduled time. if your scheduled time does not work, please contact your child's teacher to schedule another time. Thanks!

School Store CES Fundraiser. This year CES has signed up for a fairly easy fundraiser. We can earn money if friends and family go through for their online shopping. Stores like WalMart, Kohls, Target, Best Buy and other major retailers will give back 1-10% of the total purchase back to CES. A packet came home in last Monday folders. If you didn't see the packet you can visit, and use # 574 to support CES's fundraiser. We will be using these funds to support our music program and other enrichment activities. As an incentive, School Store promotes a "Golden Ticket" prize to 1 student who signs up (completely free). The Golden Ticket is work $100, and we were just notified it's still out there! Please sign up today. Students can bring their envelope in with their sign up number and get a little prize from the front office. Thanks for participating!
