Principal Update

CELEBRATIONS
Attendance
It is important to us that our students attend school every day possible.  We appreciate your partnership in ensuring students are here.  I am pleased to share that our Average Daily Attendance Rate Percentage for the first six weeks of school is 98.5%!  WOW!  This is incredible.  I hope we can continue to celebrate high attendance with our Comets! 

CCE Welcomes Three New Members To The Team
We are excited to welcome Tanya Pope, Sheri Fowler and Joan Bevers to our campus as Educational Assistants.  Tanya will support students and teachers alongside Kathy Sternad, our campus Interventionist.  Sheri will work alongside Mr. G.W., in our FAC classroom and Joan will work alongside Cynthia Gordon, in our FCC classroom.  These three are not brand new to our campus.  They have supported us in different ways since the start of the school year.  We are thrilled to have them here full time.  Please give them a warm welcome and introduce yourself if you haven’t had a chance to meet them. 

Professional Development Day 
Monday was a great day here at CCE full of learning for the staff.  We began the day digging further into our campus data, learned, reviewed and discussed instructional strategies which promote student engagement and ended the day with teachers working in vertical content teams.  It was a busy day, but very productive! 

CAMPUS NEWS
Red Ribbon Week
Next week is Red Ribbon Week, October 20th – 24th.  The week will kick off with a Red Ribbon Assembly on Monday and the fun won’t stop there!  Students and staff are encouraged to show their commitment for being drug free and making healthy choices by participating in the designated theme each day:

Monday – Wear Red
Tuesday – “Sock It To Drugs” – Wear Crazy Socks
Wednesday – “Put Drugs To Bed” – Wear Pajamas (don’t forget appropriate shoes for recess and P.E.)
Thursday – “Put A Cap on Drugs” – Wear a Creative Hat
Friday – “CCE United” – Wear CCE T-Shirt or school colors (Blue & Silver)

Volunteers
Please fill out the volunteer application online if you plan to volunteer in any capacity on campus.  Also, please be sure to sign in as a volunteer when donating your time on campus, as our volunteer hours are tracked at the district level.  We want to be able to recognize our CCE volunteers for the many hours dedicated to supporting our campus! 

Watt Watchers is coming!
Beginning November 3rd, the third grade students will implement the Watt Watchers program.  Watt Watchers is a program designed to help the campus become more energy efficient.  The third grade students visit classrooms during the school day to check for lights, projectors and TVs that are left on during times students are out of the classroom.  Friendly reminders will be left for classrooms where lights are on, but no one is “home”.  The students will track the daily/weekly data which is reported on the white board in the hallway which leads to the cafeteria.  Thanks, third grade!
