Greetings CES Families,
CES Bike Rodeo is May 23 from 2:45-3:45 on the CES playground blacktop. This is a great opportunity to learn about bike safety. Students can ride their bikes to school. A big thanks to our PTA, Bodfish Bike Shop and California Highway Patrol (Officer Twitchell!) for providing this excellent opportunity!
Our 3rd-5th graders have finished their math and reading tests. (5th graders will also take a science test next week). Congratulations! Unfortunately, we have to wait a couple months for these results. We will be sharing the results once we receive them.
6th graders are back and start testing next week, since they were on their Plumas to Pacific trip last week. Ms. Klimek shared that she received compliments on how well behaved our 6th graders were from just about every place they visited! Great news, and thank you 6th graders! We are starting to miss you already! Good luck on your tests next week. Please get a good night's sleep and do your best.
CES PTA is looking for new board members, along with more parents to join and help with the many sponsored events. Please fill out a nomination slip and put in the box in the main hallway by May 31st. Thanks so much PTA for an outstanding year! We appreciate you!
Fishing Opportunity June 1! Please see the attached flyer. June 1 from 8:00-12:00 at Canyon Dam students can enjoy a morning of fishing with several supporting agencies. Please consider attending. We hope to see this event continue in the upcoming years. (They will probably catch more fish than I ever catch!)
We need help! We are in desperate need of part time workers at CES to help out with our lunch duty (11-1) and substitute teacher aides. If you have some time during the day, enjoy being around young people and would like to make a little cash, then please let us know. Thanks for considering!
CES students making good choices! Drawing winners from PBIS Mountain Money!
