Celebrating the Arts Night
Mark your calendars for Celebrating the Arts Night at CES on March 24. You won’t want to miss the wonderful arts experiences that we have planned. We will have a student art gallery, visiting artists in theater and dance, and more! The time will be announced at a later date.
We are excited to once again have the Principal’s Luncheon for all students who made all A’s for the first semester on Tuesday, January 27th during their regular lunch time. The Ice Cream Social will be held on Wednesday, January 28th following lunch. This social is for all students who made all A’s and B’s during the first semester. Students will get their invitation at the award’s program. Both of these events were very popular with the students last year and we know they are looking forward to them again this year.

¨ Let your child know homework is a top priority
¨ Set up a specific time for homework and keep distractions to a minimum
¨ Pick a quiet study area with supplies such as paper and pencils nearby.
¨ Review homework directions with your child
¨ Be available for questions, but allow your child to be responsible for their own work.
¨ Look over finished assignments to see that the work has been completed.
