CES Core Values

Students will be recognized monthly for displaying S.O.A.R. characteristics. S stands for service. Students can provide service to fellow classmates and others by assisting them w/o even being asked. O stands for ownership and students are taught to take ownership of their own learning by completing classwork, homework and asking questions for clarity and understanding. A stands for attendance. Attendance is very important for every student's academic growth and achievement. Lastly, R stands for respect. Students will be respectful to all individuals in our school. When students are caught showing these characteristics, they will be rewarded during our monthly award ceremony. Parents are welcome to attend the monthly Awards Program.

Safety First

  • Students are not allowed to use their personal cell phones on campus.
  • Students will practice safety drills throughout the year, which includes fire drills, lock down drills, and severe weather drills. Please have a conversation with your child about the importance of drills in order to ease anxiety and fear in them.
