PTO Vote, Spirit Wear and Holiday Store

Thanks to all the PTO members who came out for last night’s meeting.  There was a unanimous vote to move elections for the 2015-16 PTO Executive Board to March 2015, so the new board can begin working on budgets and planning fundraisers for the following school year.  If you are interested in running for an office, look for additional information soon.
CES Spirit Wear would make fantastic holiday gifts!  Inventories have been updated online.  There’s still time to order and have them hand-delivered to your student at school.
To shop, please go to:
Lastly, a big thank you to Lisa Lindley, Holiday Store Chairwoman extraordinaire, for all your hard work.  We are grateful for you.  Students were so excited to be able to select the perfect gifts for their families, teachers, friends and even pets!
Thank you for your continued support.

Help Celebrate Assistant Principal Brammer’s Birthday
