Parent Conferences

We will have a late day on October 13th for parent conferences from 3:00pm to 6:30pm. October 17th there is no school for students and we will be conducting AM conferences with the hours being 8:00-12:00. Your child's teacher will be in touch with you to schedule a conference time.

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students)

The Dads of Great Students WATCH D.O.G.S. program is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. WATCH D.O.G.S. is a family and community engagement educational initiative designed and developed by educators, experts and parent volunteers over more than two decades. Our programs for Elementary and Secondary School campuses help provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important. Meanwhile, we provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security, reduce bullying and provide a greater sense of campus safety allowing students and teachers to focus on learning and instruction.

We have had this program at CBES in the past but with COVID restrictions we had to put it on hold, but now we are ready to kick it off again. We will have a Watch D.O.G.S kick off pizza party on October 25th at 6:00pm in the cafeteria for any dads, male parent figures, and their children. We will share more information about the program, talk to you about how to sign up, and give you information to purchase a T-shirt or other materials.

Please visit the Watch D.O.G.S website to get even more information and even order some of their products.
