Things to Know...
Earbuds or Headphones
While most students have brought their headphones to school, we still have a few that are forgetting to bring them each day. Please remind your child to pack his/her headphones/earbuds to bring to school. Thanks!!
Interested in Student Council?
Student Council ELECTION WEEK will be
Monday, September 26th -Thursday, September 29th!
Student Council is an organization designed to give students an opportunity to accept responsibility and learn leadership skills to apply in real-life situations. Members of the student council represent their student body and help in planning exciting events for the school like:
-Red Ribbon Week
-Community Outreach and Fundraising
Students wishing to participate in student council, in grades 3-5, may "campaign" for office. In order to campaign and be eligible for running, students will need to:
- fill out the application and turn in to their homeroom teacher by Monday, September 26th
(applications will be sent home in Friday folders)
- prepare and present a short campaign speech to their homeroom class
- create ONE campaign poster to be hung in the hallway the week of elections.
CES students will then experience the voting process and come to the voting booth with their class to vote for one boy and one girl from each homeroom on the final day of elections! Those elected will be announced on Friday, September 30, on the K-CES morning show and notes will be sent home.
One representative from each class will serve in the fall and the other in the spring. Representatives must attend meetings on the first Wednesday of each month during their term.
If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Hernandez, School Counselor, at Amanda.email@example.com or 817-305-4942!
