CES PTA is looking for three PTA members to serve on our Nominating Committee. Your job would be to prepare the docket for our upcoming May Executive Board election. We need a Nominating Committee to hold elections, so we need you! If you are interested in this easy task that would be a big help, please send an email ptapresident@ptaces.org.

Science Fair

We are very excited to announce that CES will be holding a Science Fair on Tuesday, March 26, 2019! Participation in the Science Fair is optional, but we invite and encourage all students and their families to participate in this fun and educational event!

Participating in the Science Fair is a great way to encourage the “natural-scientist-within” and develop skills of curiosity and organization in our students. Students benefit from the pride and confidence building that comes with creating a project and presenting it to fellow students, teachers and parents.

For more information, please visit our website, http://www.ptaces.org/science-fair.html. Important dates and rules will be found here.

Here, you can read our submission guidelines, get fantastic ideas for science projects, and most importantly, it’s where you and your child can fill out our online submission form. The form is also available here https://goo.gl/forms/VCeTx9i8svbnDuv43. All entries must be submitted on or before Friday, March 8th.NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
