Kindergartners Learn About Veterans Day

Glenn Niemitalo, a Master Chief in the U.S. Navy, visited his grandson's kindergarten class on Nov. 10 to help students learn about Veterans Day. He led the class in a flag raising ceremony, helped them salute the flag during the playing of "Taps," and finished his visit with a parade around the room. "The students learned the meaning of Veterans Day, as well as what the flag represents and the proper way to unfold and fold it," said Mrs. Golden. "The students enjoyed marching to 'Anchors Away' and saluted Mr. Niemitalo as he left. Thank you for your service Mr. Niemitalo!"

CES Students Get to Know Others at Mix It Up at Lunch Day

Gr. 3-5 students sat and talked with classmates they normally do not interact with as part of Mix It Up at Lunch Day on Oct. 27. The event, organized by the CES K-Kids service learning club, was part of a national campaign to help students break down misperceptions of others by encouraging them to get to know other classmates. Students sat at tables based on their birth months and were given questions that served as conversation starters. Great job!
