CPETV Episode 13

Camron, Carl, and the two Erics keep us in stitches with their tour of CPE’s mysterious atticand their hysterical attempts to launch a Coca Cola bottle into space (which won an Exhibition “Oscar” for most comedic moment). They also explain America’s recycling crisis. Written, directed, edited, and produced entirely by 5th graders–it’s another edition of CPETV!

Honors & Awards

Congrats to Room 15 Students-of-the-Month for May, Mia T. and Hannah V. These girls are awesome! They’re exceptionally well-behaved, intelligent, and kind. Great job, ladies!  Additional congrats to Daisy R., Taylor R., and Zoie M. for getting accepted into Southern Oregon University’s Academy program. They’ll spend a week at SOU this summer. Finally, kudos to all my former students who received recognition at Scenic Honors Night including Rayden G., Alyssa K., Amelia T., and Sydney L. (pictured at left).

2018 Oregon Coast Adventure

CPE 5th graders are scheduled to head to Charleston on the Oregon Coast on May 31st promptly at 7 a.m. After a slew of activities, they’ll return exhausted to you at around 6 p.m. on Friday, June 1st. The kids have been getting all the info and printed material in class, but just in case some of it hasn’t made it to you, here’s is everything you need at this time:

2018 Coast Trip Permissions Slip
2018 Coast Trip Permission Slip – Espanol
2018 Coast Trip Volunteer Form
2018 Coast Trip Packing List
2018 Coast Trip Itinerary
2018 Tidepool Research Project (Students are working on this in class, but if they fall behind they need to complete the project at home. Completion of the project and presentation in class are requirements to attend the coast trip.)

Thanks to some grants, Oregon’s taxpayers, and the CPE PTO, the coast to attend the trip is just five bucks! Five bucks!

Adults planning on attending should plan on joining us for an organizational chaperone meeting on Tuesday, May 22nd, at 6 p.m. in Mr. Hadley’s classroom. Students will also have a cargo packing demonstration on Friday, May 25th, leaving them the weekend to get organized.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Students of the Month and More

Congrats to Room 15 Students-of-the-Month for April: Emilee B. for being constantly enthusiastic and creative. Her classmates love her for her commitment to creating and directing plays; Lydia T. for being a class leader and for being consistently good-natured. Rare is the moment when Lydia doesn’t have a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye’ and Trevor R. for being a true gentleman. Every adult who meets Trevor is impressed by the way he carries himself, his mature manner, and the way he looks you directly in the eyes. His classmate appreciate him for being consistently kind and empathetic. Although we’re not having an awards assembly during April (due to Exhibition), we are immensely proud of these three students.

Additional congrats to our new Room1 5 employees. While there were numerous excellent candidates, we’ve decided to offer the positions to the following individuals: Zoie M.–lead custodian; Victoria T.–attendance monitor; Lydia T. — distributor; Emma H.–lap count manager; and Ella H. and Taylor R.–teacher’s assistants. Candidates who weren’t selected are encouraged to re-apply for one of the remaining openings: assistant custodian and distributor #2.

Exhibition is this Friday at 5:30. Room 15 film makers are encouraged to dress up and arrive early. More info will be shared over the course of the week.

Hockey Champions!

Congrats to The Jaw Breakers, CPE’s Floor Hockey Champions for 2018. They beat The Savage Kids from Mrs. Torrey’s class 6-1. The Jaw Breakers included Tyson, Jorden, Eric T., Braydee, Cellar, Trevor, Dakota, Brooklynn, Hannah V., Emilee B., Mia, Marissa, Daisy, Emma, Jacky, Jocelyn, and Taylor. The tournament also included the student-vs-staff game, which the teachers won (as usual…sorry, 5th graders), but the kids demonstrated great sportsmanship throughout. Speaking of sportsmanship, Mr. Hadley’s class and Mrs. Qualls’ class tied for the most vote for Best Sportsmanship. The Rubber Duckies from Mr. Hadley’s class won the Best Banner award. The Hockey Nightmares from Mrs. Quall’s class won the Best Team Name award. Great job to all the 4th and 5th graders!
