April already; warm weather seems to be here off and on. With spring here we will be conducting our last fire drill and it will be an unannounced drill. Our staff does a great job preparing our students for these mandated crisis drills.
With the crazy weather this time of year, make sure your child is prepared to go outside for recess. We try to get the students out as much as possible.
This month we have PreK Screenings, Spring Carnival, Book Fair and Easter Break. Check the calendar on the other side of this newsletter for all these great events and days off. Since we are having PreK Screenings on April 3rd and 4th – morning and afternoon Pre K will not be in session either one of these days.
Mini-Relay is on May 3rdthis year and we will continue our focus on raising funds for Cancer Research. Students will be going to the CHS Track for games and education on cancer prevention and awareness. The Mini Relay Committee will be sending out information soon about different ways to participate and raise money. Please assist in any way to help CES, our school district, and the American Cancer Society fight Cancer.
The PTO will be holding the Spring Carnival on April 6th and we are looking forward to having everyone come and volunteer and enjoy the evening to help raise funds for the PTO. The PTO is an excellent organization and I would like to thank them again for continuing to fund school projects that help benefit our students in a state-wide budget crisis. Please come out and support the PTO and the CES staff and students on this great night.
As we are approaching the end of the year, be looking for dates for each class’ field trip information on your student’s newsletters from his or her teacher. They usually start in May; closer to the middle of the month. I will have them on the May newsletter and calendar.
School is winding down, but April is going to be very busy. To give everyone an idea, our last full day of school will be on May 23rdand May 24thwill be a Teacher Institute Day (no students in attendance). We are planning a special Family Leadership Day in the afternoon on May 23rd.
Remember to continue to turn in Campbell Soup Labels, Box Tops, HyVee labels, and Our Family Labels. Thank you for your support by turning these in to CES.
