2022 Read Across CES 

Spreading the Joy of Reading

March, 2022

Dear Families,

During the month of March, we are excited to celebrate reading.  One of our favorite Storytellers, Len Cabral will be in-person sharing storytelling performances on Friday, March 4th.  Each performance will be 30 minutes long.  During his visit, Len will share his newest Haitian tale from his book How the Rabbit Lost Its Tail.  

We always enjoy having Len visit and share his tales!  If you’d like to learn more about this national Read Across America, check out this site with free resources and tips about reading at home. 

We are excited to share that our Kindness Makes Us Bloom tree is complete and hanging in our cafeteria for all to enjoy.  Thank you to Lauren Muller’s kindergarten class for making the trunk and branches of the tree. Thank you to Betsy Hardy and Tonya Martz for cutting the hearts and hanging the finished hearts on the tree. It looks amazing! Finally, thank you to all of the CES staff and students who took the time to write/draw a random act of kindness they could do. Because of all of you, someone’s day is a bit brighter. ☺️

Our amazing CES PTO will be hosting the Book Swap on March 16th - 18th.  Students will be able to choose a book or two from donations received.

Please join us in welcoming Ms. Kathleen Asselin as our CES Social Worker.  We are very excited to have her join our team!  She has enjoyed getting to know our students.  She has jumped right in and is eager to support our young Cardinals. This is such an important position in our school community and we are thankful for her expertise and support!

Be well,

Judy O’Meara Meghan Amado
