    Good afternoon,

    • Congratulations to last week’s CEEL star winner, Hector from 4th grade.

    • I am pleased to announce that Ferguson CEEL has collected 25 boxed cake mixes, 22 containers of icing 17 packages of sprinkles,15 packages of candles and 37 cans of sprite.  We will be working with the other CEEL sites to even out donations to maximize our kits.  Once we do that, we will begin packaging the collections for donation.  I will send an update when I have a final number of Birthday Kits.

    • There is NO CEEL on Monday, April 8th as a result of the 2 hour early dismissal.

    • There is NO SCHOOL and NO CEEL on Wednesday, April 10th.  As a reminder, you can view the CEEL calendar on the FTE CEEL website.  (Note the calendar has not been updated since the start of the school year and does not include the April 8th early dismissal or the new last day of school)

    Thanks,

    Morgan

    Good afternoon,

    • Due to the STEAM fair set up last week, we did not draw a CEEL star winner.  Our next winner will be announced next week.

    • As a reminder, the final day to drop off items for the Birthday Kit Drive is Monday, April 1st.  As of right now, Ferguson has collected 19 boxed cake mixes, 17 containers of icing, 13 packages of sprinkles, 8 packages of candles and 25 cans of sprite.  If you would like to donate and haven’t already, I strongly suggest donating candles and then sprinkles as those are the items we are the lowest in.  Once we finish collecting on April 1st, we will work with other schools to maximize the amount of total kit donations we make.  Thank you to everyone who has already donated!  I’m very proud and thankful for all of our students and families.

    • As a reminder, there is no school and no CEEL at FTE tomorrow and Friday March 28th and 29th.  If you signed up for the inservice day on Thursday, March 28th, you will receive separate communication regarding this day.

    • Session 4 classes begin Monday, April 1st.

    • Session 4 registration closes tomorrow, 3/1 at 10 a.m.

    • At this time, we believe all account balances should be correct.  The community education office went in and manually processed the February monthly payments for any accounts in which the February payment had not been processed.  Some of you were able to pay your balance last week during class registration so nothing was needed for those accounts.  Please reach out if you have any questions.

    Thanks and have a wonderful spring break,

    12/13/23

    • Congratulations to last week’s CEEL star winner, Huxley from 1st grade.

    • You all should have received an email from Shannon Messick at the end of last month indicating some possible changes to CEEL in the future.  First, I want to thank all of you who have expressed your support for keeping CEEL in-house next year instead of outsourcing it to a third party.  Many of you have asked what you can do to help.  I would encourage you to email Shannon at sem29@scasd.org and share your opinion to keep those conversations going.  You could share what CEEL has meant to you and your family, how it has helped your family and how it has impacted your students, particularly when compared to what an outside organization may provide.

    • Registration for the January 15th/16th inservice days will close this Friday, December 15th at 10 a.m. or when spaces fill, whichever comes first

    • No School and No CEEL from Friday, December 22nd through Monday, January 1st.

    Thanks,

    Morgan


    12/6/23

    • Congratulations to last week’s CEEL star winner, Luke from 1st grade.  

    • Reminders for when there is snow on the ground at CEEL.  Students should bring a coat, snow boots to walk in the snow, snow pants to play down in the snow and snow gloves to touch the snow.  If your child does not have these items, please reach out to either me or the school counselor so we can help.  I suggest sending these in a reusable bag or a grocery bag to make it easier for them to carry as well as sending an extra pair of socks for their dry shoes.  Students who do not bring snow boots will stay on the blacktop during recess.  Please remember to label items as the school lost and found grows dramatically during the winter months!  Once students arrive at CEEL, they may not return to their classroom to retrieve these items.

    • Session 3 class registration was set to open this Friday, but we are going to delay registration until we return after winter break.  Once I have a date, I will share that with you via email.  Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.

    • Registration for the January 15th/16th inservice days is currently open and will close Friday, December 15th at 10 a.m. or when spaces fill, whichever comes first.

    Thanks,

    Morgan

    • Tuesday, December 5th we will be canceling our regular CEEL classes to hold our annual PSU Nutrition fair for FTE CEEL students.  Local PSU students from one of the Nutrition classes will come to FTE during CEEL that day to put on the fair.  CEEL students will rotate through each booth by grade as they learn about nutrition and have the opportunity to try some foods along the way.  We are hoping the fair will finish between 4:45-5:00 p.m.  If you have any concerns regarding food allergies or intolerances, please reach out to me so we can discuss.  

    • Registration for the January 15th/16th inservice days opens Friday, December 1st at 10 a.m. and will close Friday, December 15th at 10 a.m. or when spaces fill, whichever comes first.

    Good morning CEEL parents,

    • Congratulations to last week’s CEEL star winner: Dorsa from 1st grade

    • Session 1 classes end today, October 25th.  Next week we do not have classes as we begin preparing for session two classes to start on Monday, November 6th.  Your child may still attend CEEL that week, we just do different activities instead of classes.

    • Tuesday, October 31st we will be having our fall festival at CEEL.  There will be lots of choices for students and every station is optional.  If a student does not wish to participate in any or all of the activities, they will have the option to participate in table time.  Please let me know if you have any concerns. 

    • There is no school or FTE CEEL on October 26th and 27th.  If you registered for inservice programming for either one or both of those days, you should have received a separate email regarding those days.

    • Please note that during session 2, classes occuring on Monday and Wednesdays will be shifted back 10 minutes and will occur from 3:55-4:55.  We are making this change due to room availability at the school.

    • Registration for the 3 hour delay on November 11th is now open and will close on Friday, October 28th at 10 a.m.  

    • If your child is attending IM’s please email me.  To ensure their safety, I need to know if they are returning to CEEL or if you are picking them up directly from IM.  This should be done at the start of each new IM throughout the year.  Keep in mind bowling, swimming and skiing are done off school grounds and therefore you must pick up your child from that location.

    • There is no school or FTE CEEL on October 26th and 27th.  If you registered for inservice programing for either one or both of those days, you will receive a separate email regarding those days.

    8/31/23

    Good morning CEEL parents,

     

    You will begin to receive weekly communication from me each week.  These communications will include any updates or reminders that I think you should be aware of.  I will also announce our CEEL STAR winners starting next week.  Students earn STAR stickers at CEEL for Showing kindness, Taking responsibility, Acting safely and Respecting others.  If they earn a STAR sticker, their name goes into a bin and then at the end of the week we draw a winner.  That winner gets to pick a prize.

     

    • Monday, September 4th, there is No School and No CEEL-Happy Labor Day.

    • Session 1 classes starts on Tuesday, September 5th and run until Wednesday, October 25th.

    • Thank you for your patience as we all settle into the pick-up routine.  Please text the CEEL cell phone 10 minutes prior to your predicted arrival at FTE.  Cell service is spotty so please list an actual time.  Please say “I will be there at 4:40” rather than “I will be there in 10 minutes”.  This way if your message is delayed, it will still give us an accurate time.

    •  

    Thanks everyone for a great start to our year,

    Morgan
