News from the Assistant Principal,

Mrs. Kerri Bianchi

Did you know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month?  At CET we kicked off the month with a very special, building-wide assembly with Magic Jim.  During the assembly entitled Bully Proof your School: The Magic of Character, students learned what it meant to be “a person of good character” by showing respect, responsibility and caring.



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."

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.
