2022 Read Across CES 

Spreading the Joy of Reading

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 hosted the Book Swap on March 16th - 18th.  Students chose books from donations received.

Be well,

Judy O’Meara                           Meghan Amado
