October Newsletter

A Great Start!

Our students have had a terrific start to the school year! I am proud of the efforts of the staff, students and families to follow safety protocols and adjust to new routines. I am proud of our school community's efforts to make this a positive start during such uncertain times. Thank you for your continued support.

PTO Fundraiser

The CES PTO is excited to offer school spirit apparel for sale. The CES store will be open until Monday October 12th. You can place your order online and any items purchased will be sent home with the students once the items arrive (late October or early November). Cohort C learners will be able to pick their items up from the blue table in the vestibule during school hours. Please visit to place your order! Thank you for your support.

Artists at Work

Students have been learning many new concepts in art classes, exploring with paint, markers and many other fun tools and supplies.


Attendance is taken each day. The at-home learning days are just as important as the in-person days. Any time a student misses class, they are missing important instruction and interaction with their teacher and peers. Please ensure that your students are participating in Google Meets and completing learning activities during their at-home days, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

Car Rider Reminders

Please help us to keep car drop off and pick up run smoothly and safely by remembering the following:

*Please wait behind vehicles that are loading and unloading riders. DO NOT drive around vehicles on the left.

*Cars should not enter the lot until after the buses have left in the afternoon (at approximately 2:20).

*Load and unload your student on the passenger side whenever possible. Unloading on the side closest to the building is safest.

Thank you!

Open House

A traditional open house isn't possible at this time, but we do want families to have a picture of what their child's school day is like. Teachers are currently designing virtual open house plans. More information to come!
