CES Has "SMORE" News!

Reported by: Diane Stegall (CES Principal)

CES is Gearing Up for a SENSATIONAL End of the 2014-2015 School Year!


The first thing that I want to announce is that I have been officially named Principal for the CES Campus. I am very excited and honored to hold this position and look forward to enhancing education in a fun and motivational way. It's been an Awesome year at CES up to this point, with many more great things in store, as we finish up the 2014-2015 school year. Among some of the exciting events going on during the final six weeks of this year, is Commerce Elementary's 1st Family Picnic. We are scheduling this 2 day event for May 21(PreK and Kinder) and May 22 (1st and 2nd), so put these dates on your calendar. We will be sending more information out about this event in the near future. Another big project that CES is planning to embark on is changing the Atrium into a Reading Showcase Room and calling it "The ArboREADum"! We are very excited about this transformation and welcome anyone that would like to help in making this become a reality to just contact me. More details pertaining to this upcoming project and one way you can contribute in bringing this to life, will come in the near future. By doing this, we are hoping to "Plant a Motivational Seed to Read" in every child that enters this captivating room of inspirational resources.

I am looking forward to all the great things that are in store at CES!
