Week 2 ~ Sept. 11 - Sept. 15, 2017


Thanks for helping your child have a successful first week at CAES!  It was a week of excitement and adjustments for all – including myself! J We spent some time last week getting to know each other, our classroom and our school.  We also took some time to go over classroom and school expectations. 
      
Agendas and red folders will come home each day.  Please make sure the agenda is signed/initialed each day and placed back in your child's backpack.  Also, don't forget to check the red folder and clean that out as well.  Please feel free to use the agenda to write notes in or email me at jsmith@iwcs.k12.va.us
