Cougar Caravan II

Honks instead of Hugs

CES staff will be honking our horns, smiling and waving as we parade through our community on May 28, 2020 beginning at 11:00 AM. This will be our way of saying that we love and miss you and hope that you stay safe and have a Happy Summer! Our new route is listed for you along with parking suggestions along that route. Please come out and park, stay in your car, and wave and let us see those sweet little faces that we miss so terribly.

Pick-up Plan

Plan for picking up bags containing classroom awards, medications and personal items left in the classroom.
  • Each grade level has an assigned date/time listed below for drive-thru pick-ups. 
  • If a parent has more than one student at CES, they are asked to attend each day that is assigned to their children by grade level if the child wants to see their teacher. If they choose not to see each teacher, they can attend on the day assigned to their youngest child to pick up for all of their CES children. 
  • Grade level teachers will wear protective gear while collecting materials
  • Parents and students must remain in cars at all times
  •  Students must return any remaining items such as library books, RR books, reading bags with books and Chromebook in order to pick-up

CES Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Marisa Lee who is our Teacher of the Year for 2020-2021! After receiving her degree in Elementary Education from USC, she started her career in District 3 at Cannons Elementary as an assistant.  The following year, Mrs. Lee was hired to teach at CES where she has been for the last 16 years.  We are extremely proud that she is a product of District 3 and has continued to make her home in District 3 with her husband, Mike, and  their three children; Michaela, Christian and Noah. She is currently pursuing her M.ED in Literacy and will graduate in December of 2020.  Mrs. Lee stated, “Reading with my students and working with them in small groups is the highlight of my day.”

Good Night with Dolly

Dolly reads aloud
Everyone’s favorite Book Lady is bringing children and families everywhere just what they need during a time of unrest. Goodnight with Dolly is a 10-week special series of weekly videos featuring Dolly Parton reading select Imagination Library books.

Humane Society Drive

Dog Ms. Moore delivered the Humane Society contributions we had collected so far when school closed. Even though we were only halfway through our collection drive when school closed, we collected almost as much as we did last year. It is good to know our school has a heart for animals during this time!
