Cougar DASH Results!

Wow!! We are completely blown away by each family’s tremendous efforts and support during the Cougar DASH.  This year’s DASH brought in over $27,000 for the school, exceeding our goal and well surpassing last year’s total.  What’s even more exciting is that because this is an in-house fundraiser, ALL of the funds raised go directly to support CES, its students, teachers and staff members.  We are incredibly thankful for your support of our school!  Go Cougars!
