Cub Pride - December 12th, 2014
Exciting things are happening at the CPE library! Some of our third grade students were given the opportunity to work with Mr. Bennion’s creative writing class from the high school. Each third grader was asked to choose his/her favorite picture book. The high school students then read each picture book to the students in their group. After reading, the stories were discussed, identifying what students liked/disliked or found funny or most creative, etc., about each story. A new story that the high school student will write in the next few weeks was then planned with each group. Surprisingly, a lot of the third grade students want the new story to include zombies, princesses, and maybe even a few vegetables. (I think the creative writing class students might have their work cut out for them on this part!) When the high school students return in a few weeks, the third grade students will get to hear the new story and become the illustrators for that story! It was very heart warming to see the connection right away between the groups of students even though the age and grade levels are very different. It was also very exciting to hear all the creativity going on in the room all at once. It was interesting how much more fun reading can be when you have an audience and/or a “bigger” kid reading to you instead of reading alone. We can’t wait to have the creative writing students back as soon as possible! Thank you again to Mr. Bennion and his students!

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Area:
Attention Parents: We will be using Park Street that runs along the south side of the school for our drop-off/pick-up area. We ask that you enter the school area from the east on Park (heading toward 6th street). You will see the pick-up lane runs along the curb next to the school. Please use this lane to assemble to drop off students or pick up students. We will have staff on duty to assist you with directions. We are excited about this change as it allows students to exit from the passenger side of your vehicle and step onto the sidewalk without having to cross the street.
We ask that you not drop off students prior to 7:30 a.m. each day. If your child walks to school, please have them walk starting at 7:30 a.m. so they arrive after our doors are open. Please help us keep your child safe by not allowing them to be at school before staff arrive for supervision. Thank you!
