Greetings CCE Families,

I appreciated our parents’ CARES this past Wednesday when I suddenly needed to revise our CCE Curbside Materials Pickup Event Process due to the “Unhealthy” AQI index. Materials were distributed safely to our families thanks to the coordination and help from CCE Staff Daniela, Lynn, Mitchell, Maria Jose and for Climate Committee and SIPAT for organizing the following parent volunteers: Jennifer Kam, Michelle Shinstock, Susan Perez, Grace Bassett, Jennifer Johnston, Kris Tollerup, Susan Chen, Jasmine Thompson, Eunmi Choi and Kadee Russ

Gracias y Si se puede,

Sra. Dunn

Highlights
bulling prevention month


October is National Bullying Prevention Month!

With kids spending more time at home and less time with peers, we might believe that they are safe from being bullied or teased by peers and that there is no benefit of talking about bullying at this time. The truth is, with our kids spending more time online, we need to continue to be aware of possible cyber-bullying not only from known friends and peers but also from the millions of people on the internet.

CCE will kick-off this month by focusing on kindness! Starting this upcoming week, teachers will start the conversation about kindness and showing kindness, not only to others but to ourselves. We will also talk about bullying – what it is and how we can protect ourselves and others from bullying.

A couple of years ago, I hosted a parent engagement night around the topic of bullying. I wanted to share that presentation with all of you today in hopes that you and your family will continue the conversation about bullying at home.
