AIMS Week

April 14th – 17th is AIMS (Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards) at CES. Please make sure your child gets enough sleep, eat a nutritional breakfast, attend each day and arrive on time.

The students have been building their skills in math, reading, writing and science all year. This is the week they get to demonstrate this knowledge. Please encourage your child and acknowledge their accomplishments.

There will be no school on Friday, April 18th.

On Monday, April 21 – the staff will challenge the students to a kick ball game to celebrate our success. Students will be eligible to win some fabulous prizes.



Spring Band and Choir Concert
The CES/MVP Beginning Band, the CES Choir, and CMS Intermediate Band would like to announce their spring concert, and invite families and friends to attend. The concert date is Wednesday, April 30th. That morning, we will be performing three shorter programs at CMS and at MVP. A full concert will be held at CMS that same evening. The first concert will start at 8:35 a.m. in the CMS gym, with the CES student body walking over to attend. The second performance will start at 9:25 a.m. for the CMS student body. The third performance will be held at MVP starting at 10:40. The evening performance will be in the CMS gym at 6:00 p.m.

We have all been working very hard on our programs and feel very proud of our accomplishments. I think you will truly enjoy the diversity and quality of the music these talented students are producing. Please join us and give a listen.


No Fooling...
Everyone thinks it's the Hammer that gives Thor (otherwise known as Mr. Koeppe) his power, but fourth grade student's know it's all in the Croc's. 

Happy Birthday Mr. Koeppe, oops we mean Thor.

In Norse mythology, Thor is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength and the protection of mankind.

Read the Most Coast to Coast

On Friday, February 28th, CES celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by participating in the Renaissance Learning, Read the Most – Coast-to-Coast challenge. The challenge goal of “Strive for Five Million” required students across the nation to read books and take Accelerated Reading tests to earn points.
Joining us in this challenge were Vice-Mayor - Karen Pfeiffer, Professor Vance Heydorn, Cottonwood City Police Department and Fire Department. While our teammates could not take tests, we sure enjoyed welcoming them into our classrooms to share one of their favorite Dr. Seuss books with us.
CES readers contributed an amazing 382.2 points to the national goal. We have received this message from Renaissance Reading,

Way to Go!
Congratulations, Students!
You beat last year’s record,
For reading the most
We’re proud of you all
From coast to coast!
The total quiz count for Read the Most Coast to Coast, 2014:
4,987,949!

4th Grade are in the MOVIES
As a culminating activity to reading Ray Bradbury's short story, "All Summer and a Day," 4th grade students at CES wrote poems about some of their favorite summer activities. To have some fun, they decided to create a movie defining these events. They recited their poems, while Mrs.Epperson filmed them using a "green screen." The students selected images to appear as the background for their recitations. Check out Mrs. Rossiter's School Fusion page to view their creations.  CLICK HERE!
