CES Receives New Artwork

Several classrooms and the cafeteria received some exciting updates over Christmas Break. The cafeteria wall was airbrushed with the Trojan House Crests. The crests really seem to come alive with some excellent painting skills. Mrs. Leonard's classroom feels as though you are walking into a galaxy far, far away. Her theme is Star Wars, and you will be amazed by the artwork. Mrs. Eldridge chose a sports them for her room. Many different sports are vividly represented. You can even shoot some hoops if you are lucky. Please check out our "Photo Gallery" for some pictures.

Peanut Free Zone

Due to nut allergies in our school, students are not allowed to bring anything containing nuts or peanut butter in their lunch boxes. Also, items containing nuts are not allowed in the classroom, including candy and snacks. This takes effect immediately. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions, you can contact your child's teacher.
