A Note From Your Principal

Dear CEEM Families,

It is almost time to begin our 2021-2022 school year at Clyde Erwin and I cannot tell you the excitement I have for our Eagles to return.

Our staff family is ready to welcome every student at Open House on August 19th, from 3-5pm. This will provide an opportunity for your child to meet their teacher and visit their new classroom. We are also excited to share the many changes to our campus that have taken place over the last year. Retired MGySgt Stafford will be providing pizza for everyone who attends and we will have approximately 100 bookbags filled with school supplies, provided by ALI Temple 257, for students who need them. These will be first come, first serve.

Each week your family will receive this newsletter on Sunday at 5:00 pm. It will include important upcoming events and information your family needs to know. Please reach out to us at 910-347-1261 if you have questions. Our summer hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 am-4:00 pm through August 20th. Please join us on August 19th at Clyde Erwin!

Dr. Crystal Howard
