A Note from the Principal

Welcome to February! It's hard to believe that we are already moving into our third quarter of learning this school year. We are excited for many fun events coming up. Please visit the PTA website: http://www.ptaces.org AND be sure to read the February PTA Newsletter https://www.smore.com/j5szh

We are so grateful for the amazing support of our PTA. So many events would not occur without our PTA. If you will be a CES family next year, please consider being part of our PTA. We will be in need of board officers as well as committee chairs. It would be our hope that we can continue with our traditions and events moving into next year. Thank you!

Mrs. Hopson

CES Principal
