On Friday, October 5th, we will hold a school-wide pep assembly at 10 am featuring the varsity cheerleaders and football team.


CES and CUES will be walking together in the parade. We invite all of our students to join us at 4:45 pm. If your child plans to participate in the parade, please meet Mrs. VanWagnen and our teachers in the football field parking lot behind CUES. All students will need a ride home following the parade. The parade begins at 5 pm.


The varsity football game will be held at 7 pm against Dundee. Please come out to cheer our Golden Eagles to a victory!


GO EAGLES!!!

The first GIRLS ON THE M.O.V.E. session was held on Tuesday, and what an awesome afternoon it was! Our 5th and 6th grade girls were provided the opportunity to do a little Zumba and have a lot of fun, collaborate and connect with their peers and create a personal mission statement describing their purpose, something they like to do and include positive affirmations. We are so thankful for our volunteers, Suzanne Jones and Rosa Creech, for their commitment to this program and the positive development of our youth.

BUS NOTES!

If you have a change in transportation, please send a note with your child to their homeroom teacher in the morning. Thank you!
