Hello CES Families and Friends,


Word of the month for June is Acceptance!   (The words for the summer should be FUN and Reading)


Another one of our fifth graders has been published!  Sam’s Good News has included our own Camryn Williams.  She entertains us with a fact filled, believable, short but suspenseful, story about an alligator wrestler and his daughter Zoey.  Give it a read on page 5.


Don’t forget our community BBQ picnic tomorrow starting at 11:20.  The children will enjoy field day activities before the BBQ.  You are encouraged to join them after that for the picnic.  Friday will be a full day of school, so the kids will return to class after the picnic. For more info click here
