Dear Families,
Our last school week of 2019 will be a spirited one where students and teachers wrap up their projects and begin new ones with learning goals for the 2020 year. At CCE, teachers truly enjoy seeing their students’ growth and progress upon returning from Winter Break. January through March is when we see students applying their natural developmental and grade-level skills. In the Winter or 2nd Trimester, students fine-tune and adjust their learning, taking more risks with a Growth Mindset, and exploring new ideas including discovering new friendships! Again, the support you provide your child/children who are learning in a Foreign Language (Second Language) is a wonderful endeavor and gift you have bestowed on them now and for their futures.

Parents, our staff truly thanks you for all your care and kindness during these last three weeks. The support has been tremendous and is strengthening us and our school community in so many ways. We wish you and your families all the best health, joy and peace this season and for the coming new year.

Warm Regards,

Sra. Dunn

Queridos Padres de Familia,
Nuestra última semana escolar de 2019 será uno animado en la que estudiantes y maestros/as terminen sus proyectos y comiencen otros nuevos con metas de aprendizaje para el año 2020. En CCE, los maestros realmente disfrutan viendo el crecimiento y el progreso de sus estudiantes al regresar de las vacaciones de invierno. De enero a marzo es cuando vemos a los estudiantes aplicando sus habilidades de desarrollo natural y nivel de grado. En el invierno o en el segundo trimestre, los estudiantes afinan y ajustan su aprendizaje, tomando más riesgos con una mentalidad de crecimiento, y explorando nuevas ideas, incluyendo el descubrimiento de nuevas amistades! Una vez más, el apoyo que usted proporciona a sus hijos que están aprendiendo en un segundo idioma es un esfuerzo maravilloso y un regalo que les ha otorgado ahora y para su futuro.

Padres, nuestro comunidad escolar realmente le agradece todo su cuidado y amabilidad durante estas últimas tres semanas. El apoyo ha sido tremendo y nos está fortaleciendo a nosotros y a nuestra comunidad escolar de muchas maneras. Les deseamos a ustedes y a sus familias la mejor salud, alegría y paz esta temporada y para el próximo año nuevo.

Saludos cordiales,

Sra. Dunn
