Textbook & Laptop Return - It's That Time...
Students, the end of the year is upon us! Rather than hold a big Textbook Return Event, we are asking students to bring their books & borrowed Laptops directly to the bookstore as soon as they no longer need them for a class.

Please make sure you get your Textbooks & Laptops returned any time before 3:00pm on the last day of school, Wednesday, May 12, to avoid a Replacement fee. (Our textbooks & laptops are expensive... you DO NOT want to have to pay to replace one!!!)

If you have questions, please contact the CECFCHS Bookstore. Thank you!

Teacher Appreciation Week: May 3-7
Dear CEC Families,

During this challenging year, one aspect has remained constant—our dedicated CEC teachers and staff. They have been working harder than ever to give our kids the best education possible under incredibly trying circumstances.

We would like to show them our appreciation during Teacher and Staff Appreciation week starting May 3rd. A link to a sign-up to bring small treats for the teacher and staff lounge during that week is below - thank you for helping!

Please bring items to CEC no later than Thursday, April 29th.
Thank you very much CEC community!

Attention: Choir Students & Families!
As you have most likely figured out, there are no choir concerts this year due to the restrictions that are in place. In place of a concert, both choirs will be singing together after-school on Monday, May 3, from 3-5 pm. This will be a time to gather as one group and to work on the pieces they have learned this semester. This will also be a time to celebrate our SENIORS and say goodbye them.
 
This after-school rehearsal/sing is your student's Final. Attendance is imperative! If they cannot attend, your student must arrange ahead of time to take an alternative final.  
 
Please pick your student up from CEC at 5pm, Monday, May 3. Feel free to reach out to Mrs. Wells-McCreery if you have any questions!!!
CEC Celebration Tree
Students, It has been a year... We all have things we want to leave behind, and we all have things we want to celebrate. Stop by the Wolf Den and add these ideas to our Celebration Tree! Make a leaf or a flower to add to the crown of the tree that marks something you are celebrating. Make another to add to the bottom of the tree that marks something you are leaving behind. There are boxes to put your leaf or flower in so it can be added anonymously, but you can always sign your name if you like! See you in the Wolf Den!
Tutoring
Students,
You have 8 content days until Finals. Remember when you said you would do that one thing "later", or "at the end of the semester"?
That would be now...

Tutoring is available in math, science, English, French, Spanish, social sciences, and psychology. Please check that the tutor you choose provides tutoring in the subject you need. We look forward to working with you! Please remember that appointments must be canceled at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a $20 fee.

Students: Use the Crosswalk!!!
Ms. Prince would like to remind all students to USE THE CROSSWALK!!! Too many students are crossing in front of moving vehicles, and we really do not want to see anyone get hurt or worse! So, please stop frightening Ms. Prince into an early grave and be smart - Use The Crosswalk!!!!!
Student Meet-Ups
We are excited to offer some small, Covid-friendly Student Meet-Ups on-campus and throughout the community. All of us have been suffering from the lack of social interaction, and we want to offer some safe opportunities to interact and have some fun! Please click the button below for more details about the Student Meet-Ups we are currently offering. They will be updated regularly as more opportunities become available.
Book Drive Donations Wanted!
One of our CEC students is conducting a Book Drive for the Elderly as his Passion Project throughout next week.

"There are several elderly residents that live in nursing homes that have families that can barely afford for them to live there, let alone afford a TV or other activities that give them something to do. Donating books will allow those families that can't afford more some peace of mind knowing that they have an activity to occupy their time."

If you have any books that you would like to donate, please bring them to the Front Desk at the high school. Thank you for helping!
Covid - 19 Updates
The graph below will be updated each week to help keep you informed of any Covid cases reported to the school. We will only include information on probable or confirmed cases of staff or students that have been in the school within 2 weeks of the designation. If your student is in close contact with any staff or other students who are a confirmed or probable case, we will contact you directly with specific information. We ask that you please continue to contact the school Health Office if your student is showing any Covid-19 symptoms or has been exposed to someone with Covid-19.
