            A big THANK YOU to the many families that attended Parent/Teacher Conferences last week! If you were unable to make your child’s conferences, we urge you to contact your child’s teacher to try to reschedule. Our goal is 100% participation!

            Another big THANK YOU to members of the PTA for providing a meal for our staff during conferences and to all those that brought in snacks and treats!



            Spring pictures are here! Families can view/purchase them in the main office. Just a reminder that payment for any pictures you wish to purchase must be made BEFORE pictures can be taken home. CHANGE IS NOT AVAILABLE IN OUR BUILDING. You can pay with cash with exact change or check or money order made out to LIFETOUCH. You can also pay online using Picture Day ID: BN319040Q0 and bring a copy of your receipt to pick up your purchase.



            A free vision screening by the local Lions Club will be offered to CES preschool and kindergarten students on March 26th. The screenings are in conjunction with KidSight in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa Family Children’s Hospital. The vision screening produces images of a child’s eyes to determine the presence of eye disorders. No physical contact is made with a child and no eye drops are used for the screening. We will be sending consent forms home to parents soon. Completed consent forms MUST BE RETURNED BY MARCH 20TH if you would like your child to receive the screening. If you have any questions, please contact: Iowa KidSight, 2431 Coral Court #5, Coralville, Iowa 52241 or 319-353-7616 or



            As a school, we set a goal of reading 109,000 minutes in the month of March. We have read 15,456 minutes. We will celebrate in April if/when we reach our goal. Thank you for helping support this work!



            If your student is going to be absent, will arrive late, or needs to leave early, please make sure to call the main office no later than 9 a.m. on the day of the absence, tardy, or early dismissal.

            Our attendance is currently 95.93%. As a school, we have set a goal of 96.5%. Thank you for working with us to reach that goal, EVERY DAY matters.
