MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
We hope that everyone enjoyed a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday. Its hard to believe we are just a few weeks away from our Winter Break and the start of 2016!
This week at CFE we are celebrating Healthy Body Week! Each day this week on CFE-TV, we have a special health-themed video prepared by our staff members to encourage healthy eating and exercise. Nurse Mrs. Hansen treated everyone to a healthy smoothie treat at lunch today and there will have another later this week. Our morning announcements are streamed live on our Youtube channel...so check our the videos and help encourage your child to support healthy habits of mind and body!
Finally, this Thursday the Chinese Acrobats are visiting CFE for a morning assembly. Check out our Facebook page for pictures at the week's end.
As always, thank you for all that you do to support us here at CFES!
Mr. Shawn Dutkiewicz
MESSAGES FROM THE PTO

Bar Modeling Course for Parents Now Available Online
A new online Canvas course has been created and added to the Math in Focus Website. The course is designed to teach various aspects of the problem solving strategy known as bar modeling. The approach, originating in Singapore, is a means of visually representing mathematics as a means of understanding, and problem solving. We invite you to check out these resources and refer to them so that you better understand the concepts that are being taught in the classroom.
Go to the Math in Focus Website to access the course. The course has four parts, organized by grade level (grades 2 - 5)
