CES Week of April 29th-May 3rd
Posted On:
Saturday, April 27, 2013

Dear Custer Elementary School Family and Friends,

It’s hard to believe that we are heading into the final month of school. We have many activities planned before the last day of school, and things continue to get busier and busier at CES. Most importantly, we have one week before the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students take the KPREP test. Next week is our annual spirit week, with a theme each day. The Student Leadership Team and STLP group worked with our staff to plan the theme days. Students in all grades participate in the theme days, as our whole school community works together to help our older students strive for proficiency on the test.

Our school was invaded by mysterious balloons over the weekend! Students came in on Monday morning to find balloons all over the school, and they had many theories about why the balloons were there. More clues have appeared throughout the week, and the reason for the mysterious balloons will be revealed during our spirit week.

On Monday afternoon, we will have our annual KPREP Awards Ceremony. The 6th graders will join us as we honor the students for their scores on the 2012 KPREP test. Throughout our spirit week, the students who scored proficient and distinguished in all areas of the 2012 test will be given “VIP” status, and enjoy some extra privileges.

On Wednesday, May 1st, we will be having our annual Breakfast for Dads. Sponsored by the FRC, all fathers will eat for free and spend some time with their child. Breakfast will begin at 7:20 a.m., and an additional breakfast for any other family members attending may be purchased for $2.25. We look forward to seeing you!

Below you will find a complete list of our activities for the week, followed by a list of activities for the rest of the school year. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 756-3040. Thank you for your support of our school!
