Principal's Pen

Greetings CES Families,

On Thursday we honored our Veterans with a program and parade. I am so grateful for the sacrifices these individuals have made for our country, and I am thankful that we were able to recognize them at school. Thank you, Ms. Northcutt and Ms. Fudge, for planning and executing this event. We look forward to doing it again next year!

At this time we are taking nominations for the Chaffee Teacher of the Year and Chaffee Support Person of the Year. Please email me by Monday with any nominations you would like to put forward (

A Holiday Moosical

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!

Chaffee Elementary School will present the musical on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, at 6:00 pm at Trinity UMC (Airport Road)
