Dear CES Families,

This has been a busy week of learning after the holiday break.  On Fridays, Mrs. Amado creates a special message for our Cardinals.  This month she is focusing on celebrating differences, specifically how families celebrate and practice traditions.  She will also help our young learners practice whole body listening by reviewing eyes watching, ears listening, voices quiet, bodies calm, and hearts and minds open.  We are hoping this will help as the excitement of December builds.  As always, we also remind students to think about what zone they are in and use strategies from the Zones of Regulation if they are not in the green zone where they are ready to learn.  

Each year, Connecticut Children’s Hospital holds a PJ Day where students, staff, and families can donate any amount to contribute toward the fight against cancer and wear the pajamas to school.  PJ Day will be held on Friday, December 10, 2021 this year.  Our entire district will be taking part in this meaningful fundraiser.

Every Friday will be CES Spirit days.  We encourage our Cardinals to wear red and white.  Spirit wear shirts can be purchased through the CES PTO.  We are excited to show our Cardinal pride.

For information about policies, schedules, and events at CES, please see our website at www.colchesterct.org.  Our handbook is available online for your reference. The Digital Backpack is a weekly communication from our schools to parents and guardians via an emailed link. If you prefer a paper copy or do not have Internet access, you may fill out a form in our main office to update your distribution preference.   

Our office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We encourage you to contact us at any time during these hours if you need assistance with anything related to this packet for the upcoming school year.

We are looking forward to an exciting year of growth and learning!  

Sincerely,

 

Judy H. O’Meara                         Meghan B. Amado
