JUMP ROPE FOR HEART
Our fundraiser ended yesterday. Please make sure to get everything turned in TOMORROW at the latest! Thank you so much to everyone that participated!! Way to go CES!!
Parent/Teacher Conferences are right around the corner! Conferences will be held on Wednesday, March 4th and Thursday, March 5th from 1:30-7:30 p.m. A notice indicating the time and place of your child’s conference will be sent home soon. Please return this notice as soon as possible to confirm your conference time. Report cards will be sent home with students the day before conferences.
DUE TO CONFERENCES, WE WILL BE HAVING AN EARLY DISMISSAL AT 1:08/1:15 ON BOTH DAYS.
Our 3rd and 4th grade students will be leading their conferences again. They are preparing for this opportunity over the next few weeks. The students will share their strengths and areas that need growth. They are also setting goals for themselves in each class. This gives our students opportunities to engage in their own growth and play an active role in planning for their own learning.
LOST AND FOUND
Parents, please stop in the hallway outside of our cafeteria to look through the abundance of lost and found items while you are in our building for parent/teacher conferences. Any items that have not been retrieved by the end of parent/teacher conferences will be donated to Goodwill. Thank you!
FROM THE DISTRICT LIBRARIAN – CHECK THIS OUT!
Our Scholastic Book Fair is right around the corner! We will host the book fair in our ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Media Center during our spring conferences (1:30-7:00 p.m.) on Wednesday, March 4th and Thursday, March 5th. 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!
