Conway Elementary School - April 24, 2023

Hello Cougar Families!

April vacation has arrived! When we return, the remainder of the school year will go by quickly! We have NH SAS testing during the month of May for our Grades 3-6. We also have many events, field trips and activities going on in May and June. Please try to make sure your student is in school every day, on time so they may participate fully in all that we have going on.

Every School Day Counts!

As long as your child is healthy, please encourage showing up to class when school is in session. Every day of school is an important opportunity for students to learn as well as connect to peers and their teachers.

If your child is going to be absent, please be sure to call us at 603-447-3369 first thing in the morning.

CES Parent's Library!

Did you know that we have a Parent's Library? We have a number of titles that may be of interest to you, raising elementary age children. Each week we will highlight a title. You can click on the image to read more about the book and if you are interested in reading it, you can check it out of the CES Library! We look forward to seeing you.

CES Happenings!

Community Offerings!

Kennett High School - Key Club

The Kennett High School Key Club is putting on a Dance-A-Thon at the Conway Rec Center on Saturday, May 6th.

The schedule is as follows:

  • 9 AM - 12 PM: Families with a child in 5th grade or under
  • 1 PM - 4 PM: 6th - 8th graders
  • 5 PM - 9 PM: 9th - 12th graders

The minimum donation to enter the event is 10 dollars. However, it is a fundraising event so if you raise more that is even better! All proceeds go to March of Dimes to help protect mothers and newborn babies.
