CES Principal Letters

SEPTEMBER 21, 2018

Just a reminder that school lunch cost is now $2.90. Breakfast is still $1.75 and snack milk is still $0.30
CES collects box tops throughout the school year. Last year we received over $1000 from box tops. We would appreciate you collecting them and sending them into the school. One hundred percent of this money is used to buy supplies for the school.

If families are looking for something to donate to the school, we can always use tissues. It is unreal how quickly we seem to go through tissues. Believe it or not, we already have students, and staff who are snotting and sneezing.

Picture Day is coming right up. Your student should have been given their picture forms this week.

Picture day is October 3rd. Please see attached flyer for an upcoming flu clinic-Tuesday October 9 Fall Sports picture day for soccer is tomorrow and for volleyball is September 26 (times and order form attached) Thank you for all of your support and if you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Again we are participating in the back pack program with the Food Pantry. If your student wishes to receive a food bag on Fridays, please contact Betsy.

When dropping off your student in the morning, please make sure that you do not use the bus lane. This slows down drop offs for the buses and it is also a safety concern.

Now that we are in our third week of school, please say good bye to your student at the door. This minimizes the number of adults that we have walking in out hallways.

All students are offered a fresh fruit and/vegetable every school day. This is made possible by the Fresh fruit and Vegetable Program grant. We do encourage all students to try the fruit and vegetables, however, they are not made to eat anything they do not want.

Please find attached information on a reading challenge for your students.

Thank you for all of your support and if you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Welcome back Calais Elementary families for the 2018-19 school year! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and that your student spent a lot of time reading. The custodians at Calais Elementary School worked very hard all summer and our school is sparkling clean. Thank you to Pete, Bob, Mike, Trucker and Jake!

As many of you have heard, Arnold Clark, who retired in June after 46 years as a Calais School Department employee, has passed away this week. His funeral will be on Tuesday, September 4th at 12:30 pm at the Calais High School. To give all of the Calais School Department employees an opportunity to attend Arnold’s funeral, Tuesday will be an early release day for all students. This means that walkers and riders will be dismissed at 11:00 am and buses will follow after that. After school care will be available at the usual rate of $3.00/hour.

Your student should have brought home a folder with several items in it to be signed and returned. Please do this ASAP as they are important for the school to have on file.

Reminder that Monday, September 3rd is a holiday (Labor Day) and there will be no school.

Yours in education,

Sue Carter

Principal, Calais Elementary School
