From the Board

Spring has sprung! We are looking forward to the last few events for CES PTA to close out the school year. Please join us for our last General Membership Meeting and Elections on May 16th at 6:30pm in the Media Center. Immediately following will be the ever popular Silent Auction Baskets to support the Teacher Grant Funds and Classroom Materials. Even more fun is in store that evening, we will also be having our 1st Annual Family Dance!! Put your boogie shoes on and come enjoy an evening dancing with your entire family! The fun starts at 6:30, so don't miss it!

Star Spangled Celebration is coming soon! We are super excited about some new additions this year, including new FOOD TRUCKS for the whole family. Much of the event is free for
CES families, while some attractions will require tickets. The ticket order form is below in the newsletter or visit our website www.ptaces.org to easily print one out. Returning also are the Teacher Book Raffle, inflatables, cake walk, hairspray, face paint, etc. Please see below for ways you can help make this event a success for all our kids.

We are in need of volunteers to chair committees next year. Unfortunately, the PTA Board cannot operate the PTA and continue to chair committees. The PTA will not be successful without volunteers. We are looking for people to be in charge of Fundraising & Staff Appreciation at this time. We may have other opportunities coming up as well. If you are interested, please email ptapresident@ptaces.org.

We are looking forward to Summer! We're almost there! Thanks to everyone for their help this year, we are looking forward to finishing the year strong!
