Thanks to everyone who volunteered and supported our Book Fair! Our All for Books drive surpassed all previous records. In excess of $2800 was given to Mrs. Maloney to purchase books for our library and classrooms. In addition, Scholastic will donate more than 2,800 books in our name to children in need. We matched last year’s numbers selling over $29,000 of merchandise which gives the PTA a cash profit of over $7,000.
Please keep in mind that our next PTA General Meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 8, at 9:30 a.m. in the CET Projects Room! Hope to see you there! As always, if you would have any questions please email us at cetpta.com

We are fortunate that the CET PTA sponsored the Professional Lice Screening event in September. However, lice are constantly around us, especially within the elementary school age population. Parents have continued to phone us about new cases, and the Health Office has also diagnosed students in many classes.
