Principal Dunn Update - September 11, 2022
Posted on 09/11/2022
CCE Community,

Our 1st-6th grade students and teachers will be commemorating CARES with La Semana de Cooperación, Cooperation Week! At CCE our goal is to create a school culture where students, staff, and parents/guardians are cooperating and working collaboratively in and out of the classroom and school! Students will engage in lessons, activities and stories that focus on this core value.

Learn more how our parents can find ways to support CARES in various ways by reading weekly Principal Updates and Lobos News and visiting the CCE and SIPAT websites.

Thanks for all your support with our CARES program!

Sra. Dunn

What Items Stay Home or Stay in Backpacks at School

We ask that students leave all personal, recreational items such as balls, toys, Pokemon cards and anything that a student deems as valuable at home or in their backpacks during the school day. Many students do like to share, show, and give such items to their peers, though it can be distracting, and we are not responsible for lost or stolen items as such at school. Please contact the classroom teacher regarding bringing personal items for sharing or special class events.
