FEBRUARY 2, 2018


We ended the month of January with a fabulous Spirit Week filled with a frenzy of activity and fun! I hope you have enjoyed the pictures highlighting each day! Students also collaborated with their homeroom teacher to showcase their school spirit for the CUES door decorating contest! The winning class earned an ice cream social party on Friday afternoon, and boy, was it ever so hard to choose only one winning door! The display of school spirit within the halls of CUES was amazing! Our pep assembly was a big hit as well, and we are so grateful to have had the varsity cheerleaders and the varsity boys & girls basketball teams join us in celebration of homecoming.

We are looking forward to the PTO Winter Carnival next Friday evening from 6-8:30 at CUES. This event offers fun for the entire family. For the first time, students and parents can also create a Pallet Sign during the Carnival. Check out the great design options at http://www.jecpalletdesigns.com/partiesPTO and hurry to register. Registration ends TODAY! We hope to see you there!
