RISE AND READ
January 28th at 7:45 - 8:15am CES Library
All CES parents are invited along with their children to come start the day by reading together. Students can bring their own favorite book to read or borrow one from the library. This is the perfect way to ease into the day and celebrate reading together as a community. Coffee will be provided. All students must be accompanied by a parent for the duration of Rise and Read; this is not a drop off event. Questions? Please contact Olivia Kousky.


GENERAL PTA MEETING
January 28th at 9:30am CES Library
Have you seen the colorful posters around school and wondered what the red, yellow, blue, and green quadrants were? Join us for our next PTA meeting to learn more about the Mood Meter! At our last PTA meeting, we discussed "RULER" from Yale's Center of Emotional Intelligence, an approach for integrating social and emotional learning into schools and families. The Mood Meter is one of their tools that help students identify and label emotions, which vary throughout the day. Through the use of the Mood Meter, children, educators, and parents can develop self-awareness and expand their ability to communicate their feelings. You don't want to miss this interactive and informative meeting!
