News from the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Kerri Bianchi

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  The CET All for Books Coin Challenge was a HUGE success!  The students at CET proved that we can accomplish great things when we work together.  The students were challenged to raise $500 to support the PTA sponsored book fair.  They were told that if they reached their goal that Ms. Maloney and I would dress like princesses for the day.



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

about Enterovirus D68 

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.

Renee Tanner

A library has been set up in the Health Office with books on various topics for parents to read and discuss with their children. The books cover a wide range of medical and social/emotional topics.


Please find below articles regarding social emotional wellness for students and their families.

The Importance of Generosity in Children

Last year around this time, I wrote an article about gratitude. As I am again reminded of the importance of practicing gratitude within your families, I began thinking of instilling a generous and caring spirit within children and how this is related to gratitude in so many essential ways.

Personal Space

Renee Tanner, Social Worker

During the month of October, I have been doing whole class lessons on personal space in kindergarten.  Personal space is a concept that is difficult for some people of all ages to understand.  For a person to be at their best in any situation, they must have the adequate amount of personal space.
