Monday, 3 September 2012


Well, here we are after 68 days away!  We're looking forward to another great year at CMES!  Welcome to all our new families joining us for the first time and welcome back to all the families returning for another year. 

We wanted to let you know that each family will be receiving a special "School Council" folder either today or tomorrow (for new JK families).  This folder will have all the "1st day" paper work that comes home from School Council.  There are some REALLY IMPORTANT PAPERS that you need to read asap!  We're hoping that this folder will help keep the papers you will receive from us throughout the year organized and in the same spot so you don't have too far to look for them.  Feel free to keep a copy of the monthly newsletter, calenders, special invitation and food order forms and anything else we send home in it.

We hope that your child's first day back will be a great one!

Don't forget to check in on us a couple of times each week to see what's happened over the week.  We will post the weekly announcements every Friday.

All the best to your families for the 2012 - 2013 school year!
