Charger eNews - May 31, 2017



Greetings Chargers!

I hope that you enjoyed a very relaxing Memorial Day weekend! We are down to just 10 days of school!  Unreal how fast time has flown!   

We have some great end of year events coming up, starting with Field Day tomorrow, Thurs. June 1st.  Tomorrow's weather looks good...with a high in the low to mid 70's and sunshine.  No doubt our students are excited for this annual event.  Please be sure to send your child to school with sneakers, athletic clothing, sunscreen, and a water bottle.  Our PTO has generously offered to purchase popsicles for our students following their events.  Huge thanks to the PTO!

On Thursday, June 8th we will have our Annual Awards Ceremony where we will recognize Perfect AttendanceGood Citizenship, and Resilience. If your child will receive the Citizenship Award or the Resilience Award, your child's teacher will contact you to make you aware and invite you to the ceremony.   Due to the numerous Perfect Attendance Award recipients, we are not informing parents if their child will receive this award.  If you are unsure of your child's attendance, you are welcome to contact our office to check his/her record.  

Also on Thursday, June 8th, we will have our First in Math Celebration to recognize our students for their efforts this year and to see if we achieved our 1,250,000 Sticker Challenge as a school!  Exciting stuff!  Based on the number of stickers each student earned, they will receive a certificate to recognize their efforts.  Certainly there will be many other classroom and grade-specific end of year events and celebrations.  

The end of a school year is usually exciting and fun, but also bittersweet for some of our students.  This may or may not be true for our 5th grade students who will soon be leaving CFE for middle school.  Most of our 5th grade friends have been here for 6 years and it is always tough to see them leave CFE.  For that reason, we have a few things lined up to make their final weeks extra special.  On June 14th, 5th grade will have a breakfast and yearbook signing, a staff versus 5th grade kickball game, and right before our final dismissal of the year, we will have an all school CLAP OUT for them.  We hope that they have made memories that will last forever.  

As always, thank you for your support and enjoy the final days of our school year!

Best regards,

Shawn Dutkiewicz, CFES Principal
