WE STRIVE TO PREPARE ALL STUDENTS FOR THE LIFELONG PROCESS OF LEARNING, EMPOWERING THEM WITH PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT AND CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY. OUR VISION IS TO PROVIDE ALL STUDENTS WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP A POSITIVE SENSE OF SELF, RESPECT FOR OTHERS, AND RESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR.
This year's Veterans Day concert was truly special. We had an amazing turnout, and we were deeply pleased and honored to have so many of our community's veterans joining us at CES for the morning. Ms. Bemak and our CES students put on wonderful concert. One of the highlights was a special rendition of Traveling Soldier, sung as a duet by Marelle Mosher and Madison Sutton.
Ian Applegate also played a lovely and moving Taps on the saxophone. You can watch that performance here. After the show, there was a lovely lunch shared by CES students and the veterans from their families. The 8th graders helped serve the meal.
Lyndon Team Visit
Thanks to VSAC and the Gear Up for College program, CES students got to meet and talk with three members of the Lyndon State basketball team this past Friday. After a fun game of knockout (won by CES's own Cooper Brueck), the Lyndon students talked about hard work, staying focused in school, avoiding distractions, and defining success. All three Lydon students were first-generation college students, and they each spoke about the unique challenges this presented. CES students asked some great questions, too, including some about sportsmanship, time management, the challenges of college, and the players' favorite classes.
