CES Green Team Needs Your Recyclables

Our Green Team Club members are collecting soda cans to be recycled to earn money for our school. Bring your cans to the bins located at the front entrance or in the teacher’s lounge.

We are also collecting Christmas lights that don’t work anymore. There is a bin outside of the library where families can put them. They'll be taken to a recycling location so they don’t go into the landfill.

Box Tops Competition

REMEMBER: Please submit your box tops with the student’s name, and his/her teacher’s name, in the designated area of the front office. Our class competition is going strong!

Bus Drivers Are Still Needed!

Bus drivers and bus aides are also needed! Details can be found HERE.
