3rd Grade BBQ Picnic

Third grade teachers and parent volunteers treated their students with an end of the year BBQ picnic. Students had a great feast of picnic foods and relaxed on picnic blankets with friends. A great time was had by all. Thank you 3rd grade teachers, and to our parent volunteers who supported this event.

12th Annual Playwrights Festival Performance

This past week actors from Philadelphia Young Playwrights performed plays created by our CES students. Young Playwrights taps the potential of youth and inspires learning through playwriting. For more information on Young Playwrights please visit

We would like to thank Mrs. Marilyn Golden, who worked with our CES Young Playwrights and gets them ready every year for the annual competition.

CES Carnival Great Success!

On Friday, June 12th CES held it annual carnival. Students were able to get a sneak peek by trying out several games during the school day. There were more than 25 games and crafts, plus food trucks, carnival treats, baked goods, prizes, face painting, and more! A big success was the dunk tank where students were able to dunk their favorite teachers and even Mr. Perez. We would like to thank the CES PTO Planning Committee, parent volunteers, teachers, and support staff, who worked tirelessly to make this event possible. We even received a visit from our newly appointed Superintendent Dr. Marseille. The record heat did not keep our families away and the event was a great success.
