This is what Mrs. Debbie had to say about working at CES: "The staff is amazing! I love our Kindergarten Team and everyone in our whole building. I really feel like we are a family all trying to provide the best environment for the students. I also love my hugs from current and former K students :-) It's also rewarding when you're working with a student and see the light bulb go on in their head after they learn something. I also love it when I can share a little animal/biology knowledge with the students because Science Rocks!"

Mrs. Phelps will be visiting classrooms throughout February for class guidance lessons. This month we will focus on friendship & kindness. Students will be exploring bullying and how to treat one another in the classroom and on the playground.
We are continuing to match students with TERRIFIC KIDS mentors. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information contact Mrs. Phelps at email@example.com
