Each classroom at CES has been given a gift box to collect class donations.  Monetary donations of any size will be accepted.  At the end of the week, the boxes will be collected and the money will be counted. The classrooms will have the opportunity to earn the following rewards at the end of each week during the fundraising program.

If we reach our Overall School Goal of $1750, Mr. Hoops will kiss a cow!

School Attendance – Let the Race Begin

The race among classes for perfect attendance begins this month. To be successful, it’s important for students be in school every day. To encourage that, CES Principals have established weekly, quarterly, semester and yearly rewards to encourage students to come to school every day.

Students who have perfect attendance all week are placed in a drawing for an extra recess on Friday. Five students from each grade level are chosen. Class attendance is  recorded for the month along a race track, with trophies given to the best class attendance at each grade level. Rewards for perfect attendance for each quarter, semester, and for the entire year may include Sonic coupons, a pizza party, popsicles at the park or a Wal-Mart gift card for perfect attendance all school year.

School Supplies for 2018-2019

Yes, Parents can pay for their student’s School Supplies by making a donation to the USD 413 Foundation. Cost is $10 per student. The Foundation has purchased the supplies in bulk and delivered them to the schools.

They can donate by going to and clicking on school supplies. Or use this link to go to the foundation’s digital page:   They can also mail their donation to the district office at 315 Chanute 35 Parkway, Chanute, KS 66720.

Donations from community members and local organizations will cover the cost of supplies for families not able to sponsor their students. Families are encouraged to donate any amount they can towards the $10 cost.

Community Happenings:

Reminder:   Doors do not open until 7:45am and no student is supervised until that time. It is not healthy for students to stand out in the weather prior to 7:45am so do not drop students off or let them walk to school prior to 7:45. This is still 45 minutes before the school day starts.
