CES Staff ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

CES Staff participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that went Viral during August and September 2014. Staff had to complete the challenge or donate money.


Cañon Exploratory School, was the host for Battle of the Books this year.

America's Battle of the Books, ABB, is a reading incentive program for students in grades 4-6 grades. Students read books and come together to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of the books they have read. The competitions are similar in style to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competition, but the structure and format of the competitions may vary depending on the needs, resources and personal preferences at various school sites or at the regional/state competition levels.

There were four teams who participated this year. Fremont Elementary, Penrose Elementary, McKinley Elementary, and Cañon Exploratory.  These teams were made up of 6 representatives from each school to a battle.  Cañon Exploratory took home first place!  All teams had a great time, and look forward to competing in the future!




Mrs. Holcomb's class visiting Eco-Park.  We learned more about rocks and minerals from a BLM geologist.  We found fossils in limestone, learned about how the hogbacks were formed, and hiked down to Grape Creek.  Mr Fry talked about Zeb Pike and were able to see where he traveled as he was exploring Colorado.  It was a beautiful day filled with lots of fun and learning.

Mrs. Holcomb's 3rd and 4th graders being taught an art lesson by artist Ken McGowan on our field trip.  They are sketching the beautiful Brookside surroundings in their sketchbooks.
