Happy Friday CECC Families!!
Please remember that on Monday, January 16th, there is NO SCHOOL for all students due to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday.
Next week we have our dental clinic at CECC on Wednesday and Thursday. This week's tip sheet is called, "Dental Health for Babies and Young Children". Please check it out. Those families whose student will be in Kindergarten next school year will be required to provide proof of a dental exam prior to school starting. If you want to get a jump start on getting that completed, here is the form you will need to have the dentist filled out: https://www.isbe.net/Documents/dentalexamform20191022.pdf
Below our Important Dates at CECC section, there is a description about some fun events that will be happening soon at CECC for our students!
If you ever have any questions or concerns for me, you can call our office at 217-351-3881 or email me at email@example.com.
Thanks and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
