On Friday June 8th, CES held the annual Hokey Pokey Fair. This event is an end of the year celebration in which students leave classes and gather with friends and their parents to enjoy a variety of games, contests, and snacks. This event is a staple of the school, and Hokey Pokey Fair day is one of the most exciting days in the school year.
This is the C.E.S. Wall of Readers! The students who participated each month had a picture taken and added to our Readers Wall of Fame. Our reading challenge will continue this summer. Students that read and fill out a reading log (20 days for 20 min.) can visit C.E.S. on July 10th from 1 – 2 p.m. for an ice cream party.
The May reading challenge winner at CES is 2nd grader Dylan S.
Spring Celebration at C.E.S. was a great success. We had an attendance of 262. Everyone enjoyed a free dinner of hotdogs, chips, and cookies. Families got a chance to visit our classrooms and see the work that has been accomplished this year. Students were excited to show loved ones some of the things they’ve worked on throughout this year. The walls were displayed with student artwork and the third grade students performed on their recorders. (Photo and write up by Debbie Little, CES.)
On Friday morning, only two days before CHS graduation, the graduating seniors at CHS took a march through the halls of CES. The CES students had prepared posters for the seniors and handed them to them as they were marching. This tradition is much loved by students, staff, and locals, and gives the elementary children a glimpse of where they will be soon enough.
On Thursday May 17th, CES had their annual health fair. There were 35 presenters set up at stations in the school gymnasium. Students were able to the visit the stations, talk to the presenters, and receive treats from them. Thanks to all the presenters, and to Mrs. Clark for spending so much time organizing the event.
On Friday May 18th, CES hosted a VIP family dance in the gym. This dance was sponsored by the Calais PTO. It took place from 5:30 to 7:30PM and cost $5.
