1:1 Initiative Next Steps

In January of 2015, CES became a 1:1 community with each student having an iPad assigned to them for use at school. Starting in January 2016, the students at CES will have the opportunity to take home their iPad! We are excited about this new opportunity and invite you to attend our Parent Information Night on Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. in the CES Learning Commons.

​I​ncluded in the Friday folder on November 6th was a letter from Mrs. Shimmick with more information. Please mark your calendars and we hope to see you Thursday, November 19th at 6:00 p.m.

If you cannot attend the meeting, there will be ​more information coming home throughout November as well as information that will be on the CES w​ebsite.
