You Are Invited to the Fifth Grade Celebration

Come join us on Thursday, June 2, at 8:15 for the Fifth Grade Celebration. The fifth graders will take a "graduation walk" around the school at 8:00 on their way to the cafeteria. After the presentations, the slideshow will be shown. Refreshments will be available.

5th Grade End of School Bash!!

Fifth grade is having an "end of school" party on Thursday, June 2nd from 12:45 to 2:45 at Keller Pointe Water Park. Please click on the link for all of the details, order form, and payment information.


Our final field trip to Main Event in Grapevine is on Tuesday, May 31st. The $20 fee includes bowling, laser tag, a $10 arcade card, and pizza for lunch. Students are to bring (or wear) socks for bowling and may bring additional spending money. Although chaperones are not requested for this trip, parents are welcome to stop by Main Event for some of the fun. Please remind your child to wear his/her 5th grade CES shirt or another gray shirt.


Did you know that you can use Istation throughout the summer months to combat Summer Slide?

Istation believes a break from school needn’t be a break from learning. These printable brochures for teachers and parents explain how to access Istation at home. Need a brochure in Spanish? You can get one here. Think a video might work better to help inspire summer reading? Our Istation characters Justin Time and Paige Turner put together a short video about using Istation Home during the summer. Please share this video with students and their families:

Watch Paige and Justin discuss Istation Home.

We hope schools with subscriptions to Istation will encourage families to log in and keep learning all summer long!
