Mrs. Kill took some of her first graders out to help clean up the ditch and street area near Central Elementary School. This was a great experience for students to engage in community service while keeping the streets clear of debris.
First graders were excited to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather, while also providing a service to the community. During this experience students also learned the importance of safety, following directions, and working as a team. At CES we are proud of these students for their hard work and their positive example of Responsibility!
