CES Wins Arts Grant!
We have been awarded the Distinguished Arts Planning (DAP) grant from the SC Dept of Education, again this year! Part of these funds will go to Professional Development for teachers and two week-long residencies with a Dance and Theatre artist. If you would like to be a part of the grant steering committee, please contact Mrs. McDonald at Aregina.firstname.lastname@example.org. Creativity abounds at CESCA!

Please check the school calendar or the calendar posted outside the library for monthly afternoon closings for meetings.
If the library needs to be closed on days other than those indicated, a red sign will be placed on the entrance door.
Birthday Book Club!
Thank you to all the students who donated books through our Birthday Book Club!
Over 50 brand new books were donated!
These students will be the first to check out the book they've donated which includes a special bookplate to recognize the student who donated it.
We will be calling all students who have not yet been recognized to our morning show, WISE TV, over the next couple of weeks for recognition and to check out the book he/she donated.
AR is now up and running!
If you have books at home and would like to know if they have an AR quiz, please go to the Library page on our school homepage and click "AR Bookfinder." This site lists every AR quiz ever created. If the quiz is in their list, it's available at our school.
Small Talk with the Principal Highlights!
Our first Small Talk with the Principal was held on Wednesday, September 17th and was a great success! We had a group of approximately fifteen parents who came and shared concerns, asked questions and offered praise for teachers and the school. A great suggestion was made at the end of the meeting that it might be a good idea to share some of the topics that were discussed with other parents in the school. So here are the highlights!
¨ 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.
Happy Autumn!! We have had a wonderful first nine weeks, and we are well on our way for a fabulous second!! We appreciate all of the hard work from our students and teachers each and every day! We are so blessed to have so many volunteers that offer a helping hand. A very special thank you to all of the volunteers that helped us for second grade testing. You make testing go so smoothly!
