MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
We are excited to welcome everyone back to CFE next Wednesday, May 6th for our Annual Spring Open House! The school will re-open at 6:30 pm for you and your family to visit classrooms and see all of the wonderful work and projects that your children have been working on. Our hallways will also be vibrantly decorated with student art work. The school will be open from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for you to stop in for any length of time that you choose. We hope to see you and your family next Wednesday!
We are in the final process of completing PSSA testing make-up sessions. Nearly all of our 3rd-5th grade students have completed this year's assessment. I want to congratulate our students on a job well done and thank all of our parents for all of your encouragement and support. Our students worked very hard and we are very proud of their efforts!
As always, thank you for your support!
