Happy Birthday to Us - Our Tenth Year

Our Kindergarten students will always remember the 10th birthday of our school. This past week has been full of activities, parties, and fun. The kick-off started last week at our flag raising. The time capsule that was buried 10 years ago was unearthed. Pictures, books, and classroom treasures from 1998 were displayed in the lobby together with items from each of the ten years past themes. Students and alumni faculty who were in the inaugural class and throughout the last ten years came back to take part in various celebrations throughout the week. This included reading some of their favorite books to our class.

Each year our school has a theme that students, teachers and community rally around. The themes have included Hollywood, Puzzle Paradise, Construction, Sports, Western, well, we have been To Infinity and Beyond... On Thursday, students were invited to wear a costume that represented one of our past themes. In the afternoon, we had a party complete with dancing, cupcakes, and gift bags.

On Friday, each child was gifted with a CCE Birthday T-Shirt and we all wore them for our flag-raising. Immediately following that, we lined up for an aerial photo taken of all of the children spelling out CCE.

This birthday has sure been one to remember and come 2018, the time capsule will be opened again...these kindergarten students will be in 10th grade... my how time flies.
