MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
It's hard to believe we have reached the end of a great school year! I want to sincerely thank you for your tremendous support and feedback. Our PTO, lead by Mrs. Heather Marshall and Mrs. Vivian Lee did an amazing job this year planning and facilitating our many events, as well as supporting our school goals and grant requests. THANK YOU to all of our PTO chairs, volunteers, and supporters! We are very fortunate to have such a phenomenal school community!
I hope your summer is as eventful or as relaxing as you wish!
All the best!
Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFES Principal

MESSAGES FROM THE PTO
A GIANT THANK YOU FROM CFES PTO BOARD
A giant THANKS to all CFES parents, teachers and staff who volunteered their valuable time, energy, talents and treasures to make 2015-16 school year a great one! We especially thank all the committee chairs and homeroom parents who took charge of PTO events through out the school year. PTO could not have run so many successful events without our dedicated chairs and volunteers. We look forward to working with everyone next year to make our school great for our children. We wish you a healthy and happy summer filled with FUN.
Yearbooks are being distributed this week! If you did not order a yearbook, we have a very limited quantity available for purchase at the front office. Yearbooks are $20. First come first serve, no exceptions. If you have any questions regarding your order, please contact Vivian Fresco: email@example.com

ORDER YOUR SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR 2016/2017
The CFES PTO has contracted with the School Tool Box Company to provide your child's school supplies for next school year if you are interested. This is a great service to utilize as it saves time and is very convenient. No waiting in line or shopping around for what school supplies are needed. The teachers in each grade have determined their school supply lists for next year. The supply list is then forwarded to the School Tool Box Company. If you place an order now, your child's school supplies will be prepackaged and shipped directly to your home. Click HERE for the order form.

Are you looking to donate old school supplies?
For the past ten years, the Longwood Rotary club (www.longwoodrotary.com) has provided free backpacks and school supplies to low-income children in the local community. They believe that every child should start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful. They provide age-appropriate supplies for each grade including: backpacks, pencils, paper, erasers, highlighters, folders, binders, glue, glue sticks, tissues, etc.
They have just launched a partnership with the Unionville Chadds Ford School District to increase the number of children they can support. They are collecting used backpacks that your children may have outgrown or other backpacks you have that are no longer being used. They will be placing bright blue donation bins as shown here in the lobbies of all the district schools. They will also provide new white trash bags next to the bins for the last day of school when students will need something to bring home their work and other items. These bins will also be available all summer long to collect donations.
Later this summer when you are shopping for 2016-2017 they are asking you to consider buying additional supplies that are on sale. Who can resist the "loss leader" specials for 5 and 10 cents! Buy extra supplies and help less fortunate kids get off to a great start in school.
If you have any questions about this community service project please contact Jordan Gushurst at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support!
