PTE NEEDS YOU!
We are hiring a lunchroom monitor. If you love kids and are interested in a part-time position, look no further. The job can even be shared between two people, split by days of the week (i.e. M,W,F and a Tu, Th). Hours are from 10:00am – 1:00pm. If you are interested, please contact Mr. Reid and apply on the CCS website.
Free ESE Late Start Before School Program
Late start school days happen 1-2 Wednesdays each month. On late start days, ESE offers a free before school program for all CCS elementary school students. To participate in this program, pre-registration is required.
The ESE late start before school program is offered from 7-8:20 a.m. and school breakfast is provided. The next ESE late start before school program is scheduled for Wed, September 8.
Registration just takes a few minutes and is free. For your child to participate in the ESE late start before school program, they must be enrolled in our EZChildTrack system prior to the beginning of the late start program day. We strongly discourage enrolling your child day-of and may not be able to accept the child into the program.

We need parents just like you to help us in the cafeteria during lunch time.

This is a way to help out in the school, get to know all of your child's classmates, and interact with the staff at PTE.
