Parents, 

I would love your input as to what you value the most and feel is the most essential part of a comprehensive counseling program.  If you could respond to the survey below, that would be wonderful in helping me tailor the program to meet the needs of our students here at CFES!

Parents,

Your child will participate in field day this week. K-2nd grade will be on Thursday from 9:30-12:30, and 3rd -5th grade will be on Friday from 9:30-12:30. Please make sure that they wear the color that their teacher has given them, and tennis shoes. Field day attire must follow the school dress code. Kindergarten lunch is from 10:30-11:00, 1st grade from 11:00-11:30, and 2nd grade is from 11:30-12:00. Grades 3-5 will eat after the games at 12:30. If you did not order a box lunch for your student, please be sure to send your student with a sack lunch. On Friday the cafeteria will be closed, and will not be serving the regular menu to ANY grades. Only box lunches that were pre ordered, will be served on Friday. Please pack a lunch on Friday as well, if you did not order a box lunch.

Please make sure that your student puts on sunscreen/bug spray before they come to school. Please send them with a water bottle and towel for picnicking as well. We are hoping for beautiful weather, but you never know what could happen. Unless it is storming, we will plan to go on with the day. Thank you for allowing your child to participate. We are looking forward to 2 days full of fun!

Thank you so much for the Teacher Appreciation week!  The kids enjoyed seeing the gifts as much as we did!  Thank you for making teaching such a rewarding experience.
 
Students who participated in the STAAR-Alt 2 Test will not be attending general education classes during their STAAR testing.  They will stay in my class for their learning activities during this time.

lunch time adjustments

From Coach Baxter:

A BIG, BIG thank you to 1st grade for being so flexible AGAIN this week.  We really appreciate you switching specials times with 3rd grade on Wednesday and Thursday to help the students get an extended block of time to work on their Mock tests. 1stGrade, I know switching schedules so many times can throw your students off. You guys are WONDERFUL!!!  So, 1st grade that means on Wednesday and Thursday your students’ schedule will be:

 

Specials: 10:35-11:30

Lunch: will be from 11:30-12:00 or 11:35-12:05 (which ever you prefer) 

Recess: after lunch

Please send an Edlio Blast to your parents letting them know that your lunch times will be different on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

 

3rd Grade, your specials time on Wednesday and Thursday this week will be 2:45-3:40. 

Friday is Run the Creek

Our class schedule will be a bit different Friday.  Each student will be participating with their homeroom class wearing their class's bandana colors and running at their class's times.  It will be a fun-filled day.  Creekfest is after school and we hope to see you there!
