Good afternoon CTES families!


On Friday, May 31st Colonial Trail will be having our Fitness Field Day!  This is a great time for students to engage in fun and fitness!  I am sending this e-mail to ask for volunteers for that day.  There are many jobs available for you to sign up for if you’d like to help out!  Please specify, using sign up genius, which job you would like.  I ask respectfully that if you sign up for a job you stick with that job for the entire time you signed up for.  I very much appreciate your help as this will be an amazing day for the students!  Please use the link below to sign up for a timeslot or feel free to e-mail me at taleclair@henrico.k12.va.us


The lunch coverage slots will be for you to watch a teacher’s class while they get a lunch break. You will be watching them while they are doing their indoor stations.


Thank you so much for considering! The more volunteers we have the more amazing this day will be! Here is the link to sign up.

This is a sample of how the students have been hard at work brushing up on their fine motor skills.  Apple stamping was a way for the kids to explore apples while utilizing them for a craft.  They were all engaged and had fun!
