Dear CES Families,

It is amazing that we are almost at the end of September!  Our Cardinals have made so much growth in learning our routines. We are looking forward to the Open House on Thursday, September 30th.  Preschool and kindergarten families should sign up for a time to visit between 5:00 - 6:00 PM and first and second grade families can sign up for times between 6:00 - 7:00 PM.  Mrs. Amado sent out a Sign-up Genius for each classroom.  Please let your child’s teacher know if you did not receive the email.

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  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!
