Croton-Harmon SEPTA would like to thank all
of our members for an amazing year! We hosted multiple Speaker Series
events; we provided nearly $5,000 in grant funding, including the purchase of
sensory equipment as well as ipads, cases and an ipad cart; we brought “Kids on
the Block” to CET to present a puppet show to our first through fourth graders
to discuss disability differences and awareness; we hosted our first Family Fun
Day in March, which was a very successful sensory-friendly screening of Mr.
Peabody and Sherman; we hosted our first Art Exhibit and Reception at Symphony
Knoll to honor all students that submitted artwork for our Art Contest; and we
recently brought Sam Sandler to perform his DEAFinitely Magic show at CET and
PVC to inspire our students to never give in and to realize their true
potential, discovering that the magic to succeed is in each of us! Please
consider joining CH-SEPTA next year to enable us to continue providing these
types of programs for you and your children.
Please label your child’s lunchbox and outer clothing including sweatshirts. Each year our Lost and Found is piled high with sweatshirts, sweaters, and coats that go unclaimed.
Information on the Lunch/Recess Program
Some things to note:
The lunch/recess period is 45 minutes. Students have about 20-25 minutes to eat and 20-25 minutes to play. Students go to recess before lunch.
This year CET will continue to participate in the Labels for Education program. Through the program we can collect UPCs from participating products to earn points that can be redeemed for FREE educational merchandise.

News from the Assistant Principal,
Mrs. Kerri Bianchi
What do you do when no one is watching?
One of our goals at CET is to increase the emphasis on Social/Emotional learning and Character Education. We pride ourselves in building a positive school community and strong empathy in our students. All of our students are familiar with the Golden Rule and we look for opportunities to recognize students who go above and beyond to help others. We are excited to extend this idea to this summer’s homework assignment.
A message from Asst. Principal,
"Schools are responsible for teaching your child. But schools can't do their job if your child is absent. Learning builds day by day. A child who misses a day of school misses a day of learning."

Studies indicate that focusing on social-emotional wellness in children can actually lead to academic growth.
