Activities are funded by the CES PTA along with 5th grade families. The CES PTA requests that each 5th grade family contribute $40.00 per 5th grade student. Contributions fund 5th grade t-shirts (worn throughout the year), breakfasts, class picnic, and school gifts. Participation in schools out activities may require additional costs and some activities may require food donations and volunteers.
