March 25, 2022. Connect. Thrive
We had a busy week at CES! Some highlights from this week include:
--Our March Madness Champion Finalists are: Up the Creek and Manjhi Moves a Mountain. Check in next week to see which book are CES students loved the most this year!
--We had an AWESOME assembly from the BMX Stuntmasters that focused on the Six Spokes of Character including: Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Trust, Teamwork, and Kindness
We look forward to more great things ahead for our students this spring!
Mrs. Fischer and Ms. Crowther
Staff Spotlight: Michelle Petrillo
Ms. Michelle's motivation to work at CES was born from her passion for working with students that have special needs. She enjoys working with students to help them reach those "get it" moments and watching their faces light up. She says, "It's AWESOME!" Ms. Michelle also loves the spunky spirit of the CES kids, their determination, and their love for life.
In her free time, Ms. Michelle loves gardening and crafts and eating Birthday Cake or Oreo ice cream. She dreams of visiting Italy someday, in her favorite plaid shirt, to experience the richness of their culture. Ms. Michelle also loves unicorns, particularly the ones that visit her garden each spring.

Volunteers on Campus
Volunteers on campus
CES values our volunteers who help us so much. This year, in addition to the paperwork that volunteers complete we will be requiring
proof of vaccination
Or a weekly Covid test
and be fingerprinted (this can be done at the District Office in Quincy)
You are considered a volunteer if you come in consistently to assist at school in your child’s class. Field Trip drivers or parents that help for one event are not considered volunteers in this circumstance.
Testing will occur on campus once a week starting in early October but one can get a test result from anywhere convenient. The “quick test” AKA antigen will be the test provided at the school. At this time, over the counter tests will not be accepted.
