The Final Countdown Is On!

One more week to go!  I know we are all excited about second grade and the upcoming summer break!  Please remind your children that the rules remain the same this week.

Rule #1 Respect

Rule #2 Safety


Special thank you to all the family members who support CTES in our recent Fun Run Boosterthon.  The donations were very generous and helped us to reach our goal.  We enjoyed celebrating at the Fun Run on Friday.

Another special thanks to Melody’s mom for being our Mystery Reader last week!

Big News!  We have a new “Around The World” champion this week – Yashwanth!  Congratulations Yashwanth!  We now have one more chance for a girl to hold this special title.  Keep practicing those math facts!!!!

On Monday we will visit the Wax Museum that the fifth grade students have worked so hard on this year and donate all our change for charity.  We are still accepting coins through Monday!  Thanks to all the families who have already donated.

On Wednesday afternoon the first grade students will gather together to have a large yearbook signing.  We have invited all of the resource teachers to join us too!  If you did not purchase a yearbook, I believe they are still available for $30.

*Friday is a 1/2 day of school and report cards will be coming home.

I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day on Monday.  Please take time to talk with your child about the importance of Memorial Day.  It is a day when we remember all the men and women in the military who have died serving our country.

Field Day is on Friday!

Please remember to dress your child in their class t-shirt or a lime green or green shirt and wear tennis shoes.  If you did not order a lunch in advance, please remember to bring a bag lunch.  If the weather is good, we will have a picnic outside!
