Principal's Pen 

Greetings CES Families,

This Friday is our Let’s Glow Crazy Fall Festival, and we need volunteers. We can’t pull off our fun school events without parental support.(Volunteer Sign-up)

Please remember that students need tennis shoes/sneakers for PE daily. Wearing proper shoes prevents injuries.

Did you know that you can help our school earn money just by choosing our school as your school to support at Publix and on Amazon Smile? You’re already shopping at these places, why not have some of the money you spend come back to our school? We appreciate your support! Publix Registry

Soar Eagles,

April Clark

Marty the Moose wants to be a reindeer! Those famous flying holiday helpers have all the fun - especially traveling around the world on Christmas Eve delivering gifts to all the good boys and girls. But everyone knows that moose are simply too big and heavy to fly! Who ever heard of a Christmas Moose anyway? Join a castload of holiday characters and Father Time, as they share the tale of a moose who wanted to fly, and how miracles can happen if only we believe!
