There is something exciting in the CES Library that families can borrow! IT’S AN ECHO PASS!! If you don’t know what an echo pass is, it is a card that will give groups of four a discount to The Echo Leahy Center for Lake Champlain in  Burlington, Vermont. You and three guests can buy a ticket for $7.00 each. That is about half the regular ticket price, children under 2 get in for free. Echo is an aquarium/science center that displays live animals that live in the Lake Champlain. It is open from 10am-5pm daily. To get more details go to

Families + Games + Books + Pizza = FUN!

IMG_7754JPGAs a culmination to our Play to Learn and Learn to Play theme, CES families were invited to an evening of Pizza and Play on June 1. Approximately 115 people participated in a variety of games and activities including Pictionary, Scattergories, Yahtzee, math card games, old fashioned top spinning, the parachute, Lincoln Logs, and Legos. Fun and games were followed by a book give away and a pizza dinner. Families also went home with dice, cards, and a packet of math games for the summer. This enjoyable evening was funded by consolidated federal grant monies  and CLiF (the Children’s Literacy Foundation). A great big thank you to all participants, helpers, and sponsors!

CLiF Year of the Book 2016

Central Elementary School was a proud recipient of the Children’s Literacy Foundation’s (CLiF) Year of the Book grant for the 2015-2016 school year. CLiF’s Year of the Book provides $25,000 worth of literacy programs, support, and new children’s books over one school year to help build a culture of literacy in elementary schools across New Hampshire and Vermont. This program targets schools that have a high percentage of students scoring below proficient in literacy assessments, and a high percentage of students receiving free/reduced lunch. To learn more about CLiF and the Year of the Book, please visit CLiF’s website. Happy Reading!
