Please take a few minutes and click here to explore inquiry-based mathematics. The link will take you to a web page where you can explore the shift in teaching and learning mathematics by watching a video, viewing lesson plans and identifying the components of successful math instruction. The goal of the video is to help viewers understand the difference between inquiry-based mathematics and the traditional math classroom.†We hope this will help you understand how and why your child is approaching mathematics in a variety of ways.†
It was a great week at†CES as parents, students and teachers came together to celebrate student progress and plan for success. AIMS, STAR and GALILEO results were looked at. Strategies were developed to establish communication between home and school and goals were set to ensure a positive and productive school year.

Students in fourth grade read Ray Bradbury's short science fiction story "All Summer In A Day" as part of their English Language Arts curriculum. This is a haunting story about life on the Planet Venus. To dispell some of the gloom, the students write poetry about the things they enjoy most about summer here on Earth. Mrs. Epperson, somehow finds the time each year to come over to CES and film the students reciting their poems in front of a green screen. Then she uses images chosen by the children as a background and creates this keepsake for them to share. Click here to view the student's sharing their summer plans and memories.
