Dear Parent/Guardian                                                                        January 13, 2017

Although we have had many books purchased for the “Stock our library bookshelf, donate a book in your child’s honor,” there are still many more to be purchased. Essentially, you pay for the purchase of a book, and your child’s picture and a note saying it was donated on their behalf will be placed inside the book cover. Please feel free to call the school with any questions

January 16th is a holiday and there will be no school. January 20th is a half day, and the same day that grades close. Report cards will be going out on the 27th.

There is a class competition for Boxtops starting in March so start saving now!!

The PTO was planning a CES has talent show on January 27th , however, we have not had anyone sign up. If your student is interested, they will need to sign up next week or it will have to be cancelled. Please encourage your student to participate.

Dr. Leigh Alley will be returning Wednesday, January 18th at 6PM to CES library. A reminder that Dr. Alley has been working with CES staff, students and families to develop a homework policy. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

Betsy is sending home packets about school store. Directions are included in the packet. Essentially, a parent goes online, registers for the program, brings that into school, (the student will get a prize), and then when you shop on line you can earn money for the school.

If at all possible, can you please notify your student and/or teacher with a note in the morning regarding any changes to their dismissal routine. For example, if they are going to go to a relatives one day instead of home, send a note. When parents call, Betsy has to interrupt your student’s classroom which disrupts the entire class.  This will also help alleviate the large volume of calls that the school receives each day.

Thank you for your commitment to our school and students. Have a great weekend.

Thank you

Sue Carter
