Infinite Campus Parent Portal

The Curriculum and Instruction Department would like to share some grade reporting information for kindergarten through fifth grade students for the 2017-2018 school year. Students will receive four grade reports at the end of each quarter. Between the grade reporting, teachers will be posting grades to Infinite Campus on a weekly basis beginning the third week of school. You will be able to login in with your personal login and password to view your child’s grades. Infinite Campus can be found on the district webpage. If you do not have a login for Infinite Campus please contact us to complete the appropriate paperwork!

When you create a My School Bucks account, it makes paying for your child's school lunch and viewing account balances simple!

7 Habits Homeside - The Leader in Me

Welcome Back! We are so excited to be starting our 3rd year implementing The Leader in Me at CSE! We all know it takes a strong home/school connection and if we are going to make CSE a great place for ALL students to learn and lead, we need your help!

Our goal is that students not only exhibit The Habits at school, but at home and in the community as well! I'm sure you have heard your child(ren) talking about the 7 Habits. But this year, we are going to focus on the views/opinions (or paradigms) that support The Habits as well.

When you have time, I encourage you to read a quick article, Empowering Paradigm Changes in the Family, to learn strategies on how you can help support this goal!
