Congratulations! our school is a 2015-2016 Respect for ALL Award Winning School!!

Keep up the reading over the break

As requested by parents, we have kept HOME PRACTICE to a minimum over the break. We have asked, however, that children keep reading. For readers, 30 - 60 minutes daily seems doable. For younger children, please find time to read aloud.

CPE II Community Cookbook - Call For Recipes

Mariama Duncan, Ruby's Mom, is organizing the CPE II Community Cookbook Project. Families have been emailing her their healthy food recipes and she has been compiling them into a book. We know that healthy eating is important to our school and this project as a way to help make healthy cooking accessible. So far, Mariama has collected about 24 recipes. She hopes to include recipes from different cultures. Wouldn't it be nice to have the diversity of the CPE II community reflected in this project?

Parents can email their recipes by completing this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1qP0IF_uBf4dLPg5BtKBofRcvVT85bR-wXxU2LkX0XCA/viewform or just sending them to cookbook@cpe2.org.
