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,
"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."

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.
