DAY OF AWESOMENESS
The reward from the PTA’s recent Step It Up fundraiser is a Day of Awesomeness here at CES next Thursday, October 3rd. There will be an epic Step It Up obstacle course, a DJ dance party, and other prizes! Please send your child with an extra pair of socks on this day!
HEALTHY HABITS CALENDAR
We hope your student is having fun completing activities on our first Healthy Habits Calendar for the 2019-2020 school year! Just a reminder that students that complete at least 23 days of activities listed on the calendar need to return their calendars to school on Tuesday, October 1st to receive an extra recess with Mr. D.!
FROM THE DISTRICT LIBRARIAN – CHECK THIS OUT!
Our Scholastic Book Fair is right around the corner! We will host the book fair in our MIDDLE SCHOOL Media Center during our fall conferences (1:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.) on Wednesday, October 9th and Thursday, October 10th. Watch for flyers to be sent home earlier that week for information on how you can order from home and have your order sent directly to school where we will deliver to your children. Can’t wait to see all of you, and watch the students’ faces light up with the prospect of buying books of their own!
We will be participating in the Genesis Flu-Free Quad Cities vaccine program for elementary students K-4. Genesis VNA provides this community service to us. The program provides a free flu shot to any student that has parent consent. The clinic will be here at school on Thursday, October 3rd. Please see the attached information sheet and consent form. The consent form must be filled out and sent back for your child to participate in this program.
