A Special Thanks
We would like to extend a special thank you to Ms. Monica and the wonderful food services staff for the delicious Christmas Lunch that was provided for our students, families and staff yesterday. They cooked and served over 600 meals! We also want to thank our PTO and all of the parent volunteers for their time and dedication. It truly was a great day.
We hope that all of our CLE families have a wonderful holiday filled with time spent with family and friends. We look forward to seeing you all again on January 8, 2019!

Camp Invention® is coming to Conway Public Schools!
In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Conway Public Schools is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention® program to children entering kindergarten through sixth grade. It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children work together to create solutions to real-world problems and build critical 21st-century skills while rotating through several high-energy, hands-on modules. The week begins on June 10 with Anita Reynolds serving as Director of the ALL-NEW 2019 program, Supercharged!
Here are how young innovators will be spending their time:
· Exploring the electrifying relationship between frequency, circuitry, motors and gears through reverse-engineering and rebuilding their very own remote-controlled robot.
· Unearthing hidden fossils then building ships and innovative equipment to embark on a research expedition to uncover more exciting information about their discovery.
· Coding and programming robot, Bot-ANN-E, to take on duties and help turn a polluted wasteland into a fruitful farm and successful business.
· Collaborating with the Innovation Force®, a team of NIHF Inventors turned action-packed superheroes, to design superhero gadgets and disguises, explore the fields of engineering and fabrication and take on the sinister villain, the Plagiarizer.
Activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover and achieve while having fun!
Local educators facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high-school students serve as Leadership Interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
