Every Student, Every Day – Our Personal Best In Every Way

CES Pride expectations – Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Safe and always Be Your Best!


Word of the Month is Community!

            May 31, 2019

Thank you to those community members that attended our Memorial Day Observance!   We especially want to thank our service women and men for being here during our observance – for them.  Special thanks to our guest speaker, Trooper Shaughnessy, for sharing his experience as a Marine and for encouraging our learners to honor our troops by being good role models every day.


Clarendon Community Complex C3and Walking Trail – The Edwards’s donation and seed money has been put to good use.  CES has been discussing the benefits of living healthy, staying active and staying drug free.  The focus of our Walking Trail and stations are for ALL of us to stay healthy, active, and drug free.  Mr. David Chambers, with his heavy equipment, has prepared the field for us and will be scraping the trail very soon.  Mr. Brian Hathaway and his friend Dan installed six posts for our station signs, security lights, and reading walks.  Mr. Gene Stone (Stoney) will be donating seven boulders to help our landscaping efforts.

CES did secure a grant from The Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports.  This grant is to develop the story walk program with the library, a senior stroll program with our community center, a family walking program with our PTO, informational signage for the community, welcome kiosks and amenities.  Our PTO has donated $500 to the Complex to enhance the experience for our Community.  We have had a number of people contact us to volunteer, which we will be inviting them as soon as the trail is started.  A letter will go out to contractors for a donation of one or two deliveries of our pre-paid packing material (which has been purchased with the seed money).

We want to thank our adjacent neighbors for their support and cooperation with the project.  The community feeling that we get (children and adults alike) is one of compassion and warmth.  The value to our community, with all of us working together, is priceless!  The project is fully supported by donations and fundraising and may take a few years to complete.
