The year is off to a great start! The CES PTO has major changes to roll out this year thanks to the growing number of families getting involved! Look for some great new programs and fundraisers throughout the year but we will also continue some well-established events. The officers and members work to improve and maintain a supportive relationship between parents, school, and students. We provide a variety of social opportunities for the students and families and supply those “little extras” for CES. We invite you to become members by attending meetings, helping with special projects and activities and supporting our fundraising efforts.

Help with ‘Free’ Fundraising and Donations

Box Tops: Clip and Save! Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. Please write your child’s name and teacher on the envelope and submit. Each month one lucky student’s name will be drawn to win a pizza party with the principal and two of their friends! Look for collection sheets coming home with your child!
