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,
Kerri Bianchi

"
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."

Health & Wellness


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. For this reason, I am asking all parents to keep checking their children each week.
