Welcome Back!

Dear CCE Families,

Thank you for supporting us during the beginning of school. Our teachers and students are off to a grand start and we know that each student is a Champion in our school. We continue our PYP World IB School journey with students learning about academics and also about the world and beyond through inquiry, projects, and problem solving lessons that require critical thinking. We work hard each day to help children gain the needed skills to become future graduates who will be be valued citizens of our state and county. Our school is special in many ways.

 

As we move into the end of August and start September, we give you a few reminders. Talk to your student every day about their transportation route home. Please try very hard to keep this consistent so that your child can express this to teachers each day. This is a small piece of gaining responsibility which can help students become independent learners. Make sure  you send a note if you need to change transportation. For safety, we cannot make changes over the phone.

 

To help everyone get off to a positive morning start, go ahead and pick out clothes the night before. Go to bed each night at the same time and follow a routine for your students. This does create a much calmer setting and helps students to awake ready for school. Try to talk with your student about school each day and find ways to make school a positive place. As academics build during the year, these beginning of the year routines will pay off and help your student find success with structure and repetition.

 

To see some of the great things going on in our school, please follow us on FB or Twitter. Our Twitter account is @CCEChampions and the Principal Twitter account is @seejanelead. We post fun things about our school on these accounts and it is a great way to stay in touch. Many of the teachers also use REMIND101 which will give class reminders about field trips, events, and class assignments. Teachers update websites monthly and we will continue to use the School Messenger Phone Blast as needed.

 

Go ahead and mark your calendars for our PTA Share Fair Open House on September 12 at 6:30 pm. You can show your ID to obtain the password for the parent portal at this event to check your student’s grades and you can check out teacher classrooms for the ways we use technology in school. It is a great way to have an inside look at our school.

 

Thank you for your support. We are BUILDING a COMMUNITY of CHAMPIONS.

Kindly,


Mrs. Mills

School Principal
