Field Day parking will be behind the baseball fields since we will have so many family members attending. Lunch will be served in the school for a mid-day break. It is very important that if you are coming to field day you arrive at school between 9:00am-9:30am and leave by 3:00pm. Students will NOT be marked as late if you bring your child to school that morning.

Thank you!

Hello CDES families!
I want to thank all of the families that helped support the Daddy Daughter Dance. It was a successful event!
The TCPS Board of Education has approved the addition of a new playground for our younger students. This playground is designed for our pre-k, k and 1st grade students. The PTO has set aside around $20,000 for this project and we will need to raise $40,000 to achieve the $60,000 goal. The PTO is also seeking matching funds through a grant in the fall of 2015. Race for Education will be held on May 8th and the funds raised for this event will go towards the playground.
