Dear Parents,

On behalf of the CES staff, I take pleasure in welcoming you to the 2017-2018 school year! We are honored to have the opportunity to educate and care for your child. Along with a sincere commitment to ensuring that all students feel safe and know that they are cared for, we are committed to a philosophy of success for every student. This philosophy of success for all and our School District’s mission of “Caring, Challenging, Learning – Every Student, Every day!” reflects our commitment to your children in every area, and you can be sure that our entire staff will do whatever it takes to ensure that your child has a great school year!

As a staff, we believe in partnering with parents and the community in general. To meet the needs of every student, it is imperative that we work together. In addition to high academic achievement, we also firmly believe in a well-rounded, engaging educational experience for our students. We integrate social studies, science, technology, and the arts with reading and writing, as well as incorporate movement and brain exercises throughout the school days. At CES, teachers and staff emphasize the Bruin PRIDE traits:

P-Perseverance =Keep on trying!

R-Respect = Encourage others!

I-Integrity = Make the right choice!

D-Duty = Do your job!

E-Excellence = Do your best!


Character education lessons, recognition of Bruin PRIDE and PRIDE Assemblies, the daily PRIDE pledge, birthday recognition, positive phone calls home, Bear Den recognition, and other special field trips and events are just a few of the activities that enrich the lives of our students.

Thank you for entrusting the education of your children to us. You can be assured that at CES, your children truly will be cared for, will be challenged, and will learn. We look forward to partnering with you as we continue to look at ways to help your children reach their potential. If you ever have any questions or just want to visit about our school, my door is open, so please give me a call or come by the school. We are looking forward to a fantastic year! GO BRUINS!
