CES Students Participate in Project Straw

Once again, I am thoroughly impressed with the many experiential learning opportunities provided to our students. This week, our 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th graders participated in Project STRAW (Students, Teachers, Restoring Aquatic Wetlands). Our students were trained on the importance of wetlands, then had an opportunity to make a difference by gearing up in waders and planting willows to help restore some stream channels. Through this experience, they traded in a classroom day to work hard in the field and get wet and muddy! A big thanks to the many organizations including Point Blue Conservation Science, BLM, Forestry Service, PUSD, and our teachers and parent volunteers who made this opportunity a reality for our students.

Chester Youth Wrestling Room Needed

Chester Youth Wrestling, under the leadership of Coach Jason Pleau, is in need of a wrestling room/garage/vacant business to hold their wrestling practices. The mats have to stay unrolled, and practices will be held in the early evening (5:00-ish). CES does not have any space to accommodate Coach Pleau's wrestling room. If you know of a possible location please contact Coach Pleau at 530-249-6169.

Thank you for sharing your child with us!

We enjoy partnering with our parents to provide an exceptional elementary education for all of our students. We appreciate your ongoing support. Please let us know if you have any questions.
