Wyatt has been hard at work creating magic in his grandpa’s workshop. Together, Wyatt and his grandfather conjured up an idea to carve wands for every student in the fourth grade at CES...forty wands to be exact! But these aren't just any old wands; these are wands that will be used by Wyatt’s classmates as they finish their first year of Castleton Elementary Hogwarts Academy. Throughout the year students were not only busy with their math and reading lessons, but they also practiced Quidditch and casting spells...all while earning house points. These generous gifts from Wyatt and his grandfather will be the perfect year end culmination and celebration for the CES houses of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw.view image

Beginning Monday, June 1, Castleton Elementary families can join our community to show unity by placing an electronic or battery operated candle in their window.
During these uncertain times, CES would like to create a special community wide symbol of hope that can help unite CES and bring us closer together.
We are asking your family to join us in this nightly effort by placing a candle in a front window of your home that will shine brightly as a message of unity when the day is darkest. Like the rainbows we’ve seen throughout the world, the candles are intended to bring comfort to CES students, families, and neighbors.
We want our families to be safe so please be sure to only use an electric, or battery operated and NOT a candle with an actual flame.
If you do not have an electric candle there are still ways you could participate:
Ask a neighbor if they have an extra you could borrow. They could leave it our your
doorstep (maintaining safe practices and social distancing)
You could make a candle out of paper and place it in your window instead.
The CES community has shown a level of caring in a time of crisis that is unmatched Our resilience will be too. We hope to shine our lights as a reminder to those who are struggling the most, that one thing will never change: We will get through this together because we are CES!view image
