Welcome back Students and Families!

The 2018 – 2019 school year is upon us and there is excitement in the air. The buildings are in pristine shape for learning and the first day was a success. We are confident that when student motivation to learn meets our classroom teacher’s instruction, good things happen. The summer Back to School BBQ is a good example of what we can do when we move forward together. The event was outstanding and all who attended had a good time and participated in the fun.logos-for-timmers-5-e1536149641461-300x296

CSE has enhanced operations at multiple levels since June. Several electives have been added to the High School curriculum, affording students more opportunities. Our community partnerships continue to thrive and through their generosity have supported our Grade 12 students with dual enrollment opportunities. We have added a Police Officer at the Lovell Place Centers to enhance security. Surveillance and emergency protocols are being designed to afford a safe space for students to learn. Local businesses and organizations have supported us through grant awards to upgrade the courtyard at Discovery Center and provide snack bags for students upon weekend dismissal. There were minimal staff turnover, and all positions are filled with quality staff.

On a personal note, I am very optimistic that we will have a successful year. Additionally, I encourage all students, parents/ guardians and siblings to take advantage of what CSE may do for you. There is simply not a single reason that a student does not graduate or has the opportunity to pursue post-secondary education, military, or employment if they are motivated to learn and believe in themselves. When we all work together and respect one another, even during the most stressful times, we move forward.

Have a Fantastic 18-19 school year. I ask that you vision yourself as a success, as there is no doubt that all CSE students have that capacity.

 

Respectfully,

Dr. Nick Viglione
