This Week at CCES
March 6 - 10
Our campus attendance goal is 98%. Our attendance this week is 94.72%
We have had a great week at CCES celebrating Read Across America. Our March Madness book challenge is going strong. Have your students shared with you what they are reading? Here are some great questions you can ask your budding reader over the next few weeks:
- What are you reading?
- What is your book about?
- What is your favorite thing about the book?
- Do you have any connection to the book?
At CCES we encourage everyone - from our littlest preschoolers to our adult staff - to read whenever they have a chance! Reading gives you the opportunity to explore the world without ever having to travel further than your couch or a cozy chair. We hope that you all take the opportunity to read, or be read to, this weekend!

Visitor and Parent Pick-Up Procedures
All visitors are required to show their driver's license or other form of picture ID when arriving on campus for a meeting or to volunteer, or to pick up a student early from school. You must check in with the front office for all parent/teacher meetings, or for volunteer work on our campus. In addition, the front office will not release the student unless the parent or guardian shows their ID, and they are listed as an authorized pick-up person in Skyward.
Social Awareness begins with you!
Social awareness is the ability to take the perspectives of others and apply it to your interactions with them. Daily interactions with peers and teachers can help build your child’s social awareness, but you play the greatest role in their social development.
During the elementary years, when children are in a formal school setting, they’re interacting with more peers and adults. This increased exposure to others begins to broaden their understanding of the world. Children at this age are developing the ability to identify their feelings and what causes them. They are also learning how to manage their emotions and behave appropriately.
During the early part of this phase, your child is expanding their social circle and they are beginning to realize how their feelings and behaviors affect others. They are also discovering that others have different points of view and that these differences may affect their interactions.
As children gain a better sense of other people’s perspectives and behaviors, and start to understand that feelings play a major role in the nature of relationships, they are developing social awareness.
Counseling appointments can be made via the link below, or you can email Mrs. Zuniga.
Where Do I Go In The Morning?
Students eating breakfast (PK-5th grade) report to the cafeteria for their meal.
PK, Kindergarten, and 1st graders all report to the cafeteria (even if they ate breakfast at home). They will sit at their assigned tables.
2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders all report to the gymnasium.
5th graders all report to the 5th grade hallway.
There is supervision in all of these areas, and at the first bell (7:25) the teachers pick up their students and escort them to class. No one has to figure out how to get to their classrooms because the teachers and duty personnel assist the children and walk them to class.
