Kindergarten Field Trip to Goodrich Woods

Kindergarten didn't let a few raindrops stop them from traveling to Goodrich Woods on Wednesday for their first field trip of the year. They participated in a nature scavenger hunt finding things such as twigs, insects, logs and more! The trip concluded with building their own trees back at school with pipe cleaners, tissue paper and small portions of tree trunks.


Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October, CAES wants your help to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless. We will be collecting new pairs of socks in the front lobby throughout the month of October. Our goal is to collect 200 pairs of socks, and if we make it we will have a sock hop at the end of the month. Help us help others!

Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Join us for our 6th Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Turn a pumpkin (real or fake) into your favorite book character this year and bring it to school on Thursday or Friday, October 27th/28th. Flyers were sent home today with more information.

Students will dress in their Halloween costumes after recess and have their classroom parties from 1:30-2:30 p.m. At 2:30 p.m. we will parade through our school and the preschool. Our annual Trick or Trunk will begin at 2:45 p.m. in the school parking lot. We hope to have a FULL parking lot of decorated trunks!
