This Week at CCES
Our campus attendance goal is 97%
This week's attendance is 94.66 %
This week has been a great week for students and staff. We had an awesome turn out for our first ever STEAM night. It was so much fun seeing all the students showing off their math and science skills to their parents. Today the admin team was able to spend time with the students playing games for extra recess. We had an extra special treat as a group of seniors from Champion High School joined in the fun. It was awesome interacting with all the kids and seeing that games never go out of style.
The students in Ms. Pali’s class will be at the Cana Ballroom for the Boerne Handmade Market this evening and tomorrow. If you are going to the Handmade Market, be sure to stop by and see them.
I hope that all of you are able to unwind and relax some. Safe travels to anyone who is traveling for the break. Looking forward to seeing everyone back on Monday, November 27th
Mrs. Gillette 💛🐻💙

Fall into Fitness Family Challenge 🏃🏃♀️
CCES family -
Your physical education team (Coach Asher and Coach Heywood) would like to encourage you and your family to make time to “Fall into Fitness”!
We are asking students to bring in photos of themselves with their families doing a fitness activity together. It could be a bike ride, jump roping, running, walking, basketball... We want to highlight the importance of fitness with the family and display your fit family photos on our hallway bulletin board for the month of November.
Please include your child's first and last name and grade on the back of each photo. These photos will be returned to you at the end of the month.
This nine weeks, the Great 8 Skill we are focusing on is Self-Management. Over the last few weeks, I had the opportunity to teach some of our students some self-management, calm-down breathing techniques.
If you have a 2nd or 3rd grader, ask them about Bunny and Dragon Breaths!
Have a safe, relaxing, and kind Thanksgiving break Cubs!!

Beat the Flu from Nurse Miller
Information about the flu
Flu season is upon us! Here is some information to help your family stay healthy this flu season. The flu is spread from person to person by droplets made from coughing and sneezing. It can also spread through germ-infested surfaces such as desks, counters, doorknobs, and more. The flu can vary in length and severity from year to year. Children are two to three times more likely than adults to get sick with the flu, and on average, one in three children in the U.S. is affected by the virus each year.
Flu Vs. Cold
It is important to know the difference between cold and flu. Common symptoms of the flu include high fever, severe headache, muscle and body aches, chills, sore throat, exhaustion, and dry cough. Children may also have nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Often cold symptoms come on gradually and they include stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, and cough.
How to protect my students from catching the flu
Here are some tips to help in the fight against the flu: ·
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water
- Cover your mouth and nose with tissues when you cough or sneeze
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
- Stay away from others as much as possible when you are sick
- Avoid or minimize contact with sick people
- Get the flu vaccine
What should I do if my child is sick?
As always, you should keep your sick child home. Do not send your child to school with a fever. Children who are sick with flu-like illness should stay home until they are 24 hours fever free without fever reducing medications.
If you have any questions, you can always call Nurse Miller at 830-357-4409
