Trailblazer Times

October 2017

Welcome to the October edition of Trailblazer Times.

A lot has happened this month at CEMS. First, Congratulations to our Volleyball Team who ended the season as conference champions. Students are diving into learning, setting goals for the year and working on awesome projects. Mr. Gatewood, along with some helpful students hosted "Donuts with Dads," and over 200 dads had fun with their students. Our Student Leadership Team organized a penny war for hurricane relief, and Mr. Nichols' class won the competition. We are proud to say that we raised a total of $ 2,206.63! We're wrapping up this month with Red Ribbon Week by participating in fun dress up days like Crazy Socks Day and Favorite Team. All students were encouraged to pledge living drug-free. There are more exciting things happening around the corner. Make sure to check the upcoming events, and watch the ONE AWARD VIDEO and October's BBN.
