CDES Weekly Update

Dear CDES Families,

The end of the school year was busy, productive and fun! Thank you to everyone who could attend our Field Day, awards assemblies and other activities at school. We appreciate the ongoing support and partnership with families.

If you are receiving this notification and your child has moved on to Easton Middle School, you can add Easton Middle School to your notifications.

Our school will be open almost every Monday-Thursday from 8:00-4:00. We will be opening up our Media Center a few times this summer for students to come in and read books or check out books to read at home. I will send out the dates when it is finalized. 

Please pick up report cards and student items from the main office if your child missed the last day of school. 
Call me anytime throughout the summer! I am always available to address any questions or concerns. 

Best Wishes,
Laura Griffith
Principal of CDES

2016-17 CDES School Supply List

Hello CDES families! I am excited to organize some before and/or after school clubs for our students. Due to the lack of funding I will need parent and staff volunteers to plan and run the clubs. Read the attached letter for more information. Please fill out the attached form and return it to the CDES office if you are interested. Call me with any questions or concerns. 410-822-2391

Thank you for your consideration!
