Dismissal Changes

Dismissal changes & Early Checkouts must be completed by 2:00 PM (M ,T, TH, F) and by 1:00 PM (W). All changes should be in writing.  Please send changes to CES [email protected]

Your respect for our dismissal policy helps maintain safety and security as we complete attendance/dismissal change/check-out reports accurately before students prepare for and move to their dismissal stations. It is often very difficult to locate students or get them ready to leave early during the last minutes prior to dismissal bell. Teachers and students are completing lessons, packing up, or on the move to dismissal stations.    

Thank you for your understanding and compliance as we work together for all students’ scholastic success!

Congratulations!

Congratulations to our Rookie Teacher of the Year Lauren Zytowski, Teacher of the Year Colleen LaHatte, and School Related Employee of the Year Maureen Shilkunas!

Cougar Families, 

Please see the attached testing schedules for K-2 & 3rd-5th. 

In March 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis signed new legislation that replaces the Florida Standards Assessments in ELA and Mathematics with the Coordinated Screening and Progress Monitoring System required in section 1008.25(8), F.S. If you recall, the new FAST system for grades K–2 Reading and Mathematics that will be implemented in the 2022–23 school year. Kindergarten–Grade 2 Star Early Literacy, Star Reading, and Star Mathematics Overview FAST for students in grades K–2 will be administered three times a year using Renaissance Learning’s Star assessments.

K-2 Winter Testing Letter

Grades 3–10 FAST Overview • Grades 3–10 FAST ELA Reading and grades 3–8 FAST Mathematics assessments are aligned to the Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards. • Because all FAST assessments are computer-adaptive, items may become progressively harder as students successfully respond to items and easier if students answer more questions incorrectly. • FAST assessments are administered three times during each school year: once at the beginning of the year (PM1), once in the middle of the year (PM2), and once at the end of the year (PM3).

John A. Crookshank Spelling Bee: We Have a Champion!

The 2022 – 2023 CES Spelling Bee was held on Friday, November 18. The competition consisted of 10 worthy contestants. It was a hard fought spelling battle that lasted 16 thrilling rounds. When the dust settled, Spencer Lamontagne from Ms. Anderson’s homeroom class, successfully spelled the word “exciting” to earn the title of the 2022 – 2023 CES Spelling Bee Champion. We are very proud of Spencer and wish him luck when he represents CES at the District spelling bee competition. The Runner Up was Lyric Gibson. Other contestants were: Ella Brink, Aubriana Burch, Ella Grady, Cash Hasbrouck, James Jackson, Ju’Cory Sams Jr., Christopher Taylor, and Mikaela Waters.
