Leader in Me Survey- Grades 3-5 only

Each year, we ask our families of students in grades 3-5 to complete a survey for our Leader in Me Initiative. Below is the link for this year's survey. The 25 multiple-choice question survey centers around home-school connections and your child's ability to implement the leadership skills they've learned through the 8-Habits. We appreciate your time in completing this survey by June 2 as we are aware that you have provided feedback on at least 2 additional surveys this Spring already. Thank you to our families that have completed the survey thus far.

Wellness Committee Update

Congratulations to our Wellness Committee! Our school participated in MUSC Boeing Center for Children’s Wellness School-based Wellness Initiative during the 2022-2023 school year. Participation in this Initiative shows our commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of our students and staff. Our participation earned our school $1000!

Kindergarten Sing-Along

On June 2 at 9:00 a.m., we will host our annual Kindergarten Sing-along in the cafeteria. Lots of our students have family members attend this event. Please arrive early with a valid picture ID for entry into the building. ID's will be matched to your child's PowerSchool Account. Individuals that are not already listed in PowerSchool will need to be entered into our Ident-A-Kid system. If you have family members coming to this event, please alert them to this process prior to the event so the check-in process runs as smoothly as possible. Families may begin to arrive as early as 8:00 a.m.

End of the Year Celebrations

Many of our classrooms host end of the year celebrations with their students. During these celebrations, students often consume food that is brought in by our families. Please be on the lookout for communication from your child's teacher, if applicable. If you are uncomfortable with your child consuming "outside food/beverages" please notify the teacher as soon as possible.

YMCA Summer Camp

The YMCA will be hosting a Summer Camp for students that attend CES. Please contact them directly, if you are interested in your child attending.
