Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills kids learn, it is the one you can influence the most.
You are invited to shop our Scholastic Online Book Fair, where we know you’ll find great books, especially on snow days! While shopping online, you can create a wish list to send to relatives and friends, watch videos, or listen to podcasts to learn more about some of the hottest books. And, be sure to see if your teacher has created a Classroom Wish List. Consider buying a book or two from the list to keep the classroom library stocked with fresh, new titles.
Our Online Fair is available for an extended time from March 19th to March 28th. So even if you can’t make it to the Book Fair, we look forward to having you participate in our Online Fair. Remember, all online orders benefit our school and ship for FREE!

The LCES PE Department In the month of February, our students participated in our annual Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. Through this initiative, students learned about how to make heart healthy decisions, worked incredibly hard to learn new jump rope skills, and most importantly, put on a heart of service to raise money for the American Heart Association. So far the efforts of our students have raised approximately $5,300! WE ARE NOT DONE YET!
Please join us on Monday, March 26 at 6:00 PM in the Caroline Middle School gym for our second annual Student vs. Faculty basketball game! Fifth grade students will take on the teachers in a fierce match up. The BETA Club will sell refreshments and various LCES clubs will perform at half time. The cost of admission is $2 for adults, $1 for kids, and FREE for any student who fundraised. All proceeds to go towards our American Heart Association donations. Fun for the whole family to enjoy!
