CES Families Serving Our Country
Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11th. The reason it is celebrated on the 11th is because fighting in World War I ended on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour.
Veterans Day is a holiday we celebrate to show thanks for our Veterans. Veterans are men and women who served in the armed forces in our country. This means that they are a part of the U.S. military. Veterans include those who were in the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, or Marines.
It takes bravery and honor to serve in the U.S. Military. It takes bravery and honor for some of our Little Eagles who currently have family serving our country. Many people in our military need to travel far from their families for long periods of time. They miss holidays, birthdays and special family events.The members of our military also risk their lives as their work is very dangerous. They do it because they know that their job is important to keeping our country safe!
Chris and Billie, parents of Bella and Zac are both veterans of the United States Air Force. Chris served from 2006 to 2015 in active duty and is still currently serving in the Air Guard out of Selfridge Air National Guard base near Detroit, Mi. Billie served in the United States Air Force as well, from 2005 to 2013.
Donald, father of Wyatt and Emelyn is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Donald served from 2011 to 2016 on active duty and is still currently serving in the Marine Corps at the Grissom Air Force Base in Peru, IN.
One of of our Young 5's students, Kolter, has a dad who is active duty in the Army too!
Carson is a first grade student whose mom is actively deployed overseas in Germany. Carson was able to travel this past Summer to visit her.
Our CES family is proud to recognize and honor the sacrifices that all of our veterans have made to keep our country safe.

Pizza With The Principal
Groups with the counselor began in October. The groups currently taking place are: self-control, social skills, transitions and a group for those who struggle with worry and anxiety. If your student is taking part in a group you should have received a letter in their folder.
If you feel your student could benefit from a group and is not currently in one, you can contact Mrs. Phelps at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-592-6632.
Move This World
This month many of our classrooms began using the Social Emotional Learning program called Move This World. The program is a 5 minute video in the morning working on a SEL skill, and then a 3 minute video at the end of the day to help them calm down before they head home.
Ask your student: what are the "Emogers"? Emoger's are the starting point of teaching students ways to deal with their emotions in a positive way. We have already seen many students talking and referencing back to using Emogers as good choices.
