Congratulations to our 5th Grade All-County Chorus Performers!

 CES All-County students Lily Gallagher, Molly Osswald, Paul Truncale, Taylor Rogers, Emily Allen, and Mia Gottesman were six of about eighty of the best 5th and 6th grade musicians from all over Greene County chosen to participate in the 2016 GCMEA Elementary All-County Chorus. The six worked on some very challenging music after school and during their recess for over a month, and on November 2nd and 4th, traveled to Cairo-Durham High School to rehearse with their conductor and present a fantastic concert on Friday night! They were excellent ambassadors for our school and were model students with not only their talent but also their behavior and dedication.

Over twenty firefighters from the Catskill Fire Department, Kiskatom Fire Department, and Palenville Fire Department visited our school to show the students their firetrucks and other firefighting equipment. They also shared information on how to prevent fires and what to do if there is ever a fire emergency. Special thanks to these volunteers for making Fire Prevention Day an exciting event our students enjoy, and for helping to keep our communities safe.

third graders about the Monarch Butterfly Life Cycle. As part of their Citizen Science program Mrs. Tedford’s science classes were
given Monarch larvae to observe and care for. The project lasted
for over a month, during which the children watched their larvae
eat, grow, and turn into butterflies. In October, the students
released their adult butterflies into the wild.

Constitution Day commemorates the signing of our nation's Constitution in Philadelphia, PA on September 17, 1787. The fifty-seven delegates who signed the original document hailed from all over the newly formed United States of America and had worked together for four months to design a framework for our government that we still use today. At CES, the children began by working in committees to brainstorm rules for a fair, peaceful, protected, and happy classroom for all. Read full article...
