WE DID IT CEMS FAMILIES!!!

Another year in the books! We are so fortunate to send our kids to school in a district where they are celebrated by teachers, staff, and community members each day. Sure - on a daily basis there are ups and down for all our kids including pizza parties, dances, spirit week, A+s, F's, every grade in between, calls from the principal, tiffs between friends, etc... Regardless of the chaos - in the end, we have a close knit community that wouldn't be the same without you and your child as a part of it. 

Best of luck to the 8th graders as they walk down the hill to CEHS next fall. A huge thank you to Carmensol Kesselhaut for spearheading her crew of volunteers to make tomorrow's 8th grade celebration a special event for our kids. Thank you to Eileen Hetrick for wrangling her volunteers to plan and execute the 8th grade dinner before the dance. THANK YOU!

6th graders who ordered Chewonki t-shirts, they will be distributed today, Monday 6/18 to the teacher indicated on the order form.  If you ordered one and have already left for the summer, I will deliver it to your home in the next week. I'll be in touch with teachers about this, but feel free to email me as well - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please note that we do not have extras, so if you did not order one and were still hoping to get one, I'm sorry, that isn't possible at this point.

Thank you to Dahlia Rondeau (newsletter) and Aimee Zanovello (Facebook) who help spread the word each week. Our families appreciate it very much! Please note families, we'll be taking the summer off from newsletters, resuming them in late August. 

Thank you to ALL VOLUNTEERS who spent any ounce of time doing something to support our kids, teachers, staff, and schools this year - MSPA, sports boosters, extra curricular groups, in the school, school board, - and many many others. 

If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity for the MSPA next year, please reach out to me and we'll figure out the best fit. There are all sorts of things to do from organizing events to folding clink bags. I promise you there is something for everyone and every time commitment.  

Best wishes for a great summer! 
Cheers!
 


 

CLYNK Weekly Announcement

Thank you to ALL of you who supported CLYNK this year. Our program will raise well over $10,000 this school year!  Please continue to CLYNK over the Summer.  There will be grade level bags in the lobby of CEMS that you can take or have your kids grab on their way out of school.  You can take your child's current grade level bag and those funds will follow them.  Example, if you take a 5th grade bag for your current 5th grader, that bag will count towards their grade (all through the Summer) as it is attached to their account number. Next year that account number will roll to 6th grade with them.  

Special thanks to the following volunteers who have done everything from fold bags multiple times throughout the year, picked up CLYNK bags weekly from the school or from C*Salt and taken them to Hannaford or filled classroom bins with bags. This program could not work without the many committed hands below:

Jill Abrahamsen, Kathryn Akerman, Kathleen Curry-Sparks, Ann Gray, Julie Halter, Brenna Kelley, Stephanie Korupp, Stephanie Leonhirth, Sam Lowe  Jennifer O'Sullivan, Terri Patterson, Heather Ramsden, Jayne Rudberg, Mary Smith and Amber Wannemacher

Have a wonderful Summer!
