Wreaths Across America

At our Veterans Day program on November 9, CES donated over $100 to Rolling Thunder who has the goal to place wreaths on each of the headstones at Mountain Home National Cemetery. Their effort is part of a campaign called Wreaths Across America. WJHL highlighted this effort during a weekly morning broadcast and CES was mentioned during the segment. A big thank you to staff and students for supporting the lollipop sales fundraising event, and donating those proceeds to the Wreaths Across America program. Here is a link to the news segment.

Parent Portal

Parents of students in grades 4 and 5 can access their children's grades online through the Parent Portal. If you are interested in accessing your child's grades, please contact the school office for more information. Please be aware that grades may not be posted immediately, as grading student work takes time.

My School Bucks - View Your Child's Lunch Account Online

In order to better serve our parents and community, Smyth County Schools Food Service Program has invested in a web-based cafeteria application called My School Bucks. This application enables parents/guardians to view their child's lunch account status, including account balance, meals eaten, and a la carte/extra items purchased. Parents will also be able to make online payments. There is no charge to view a student account status; however, the company does charge $2.50 to process each online payment. To create an account, click the My School Bucks link above. You will need your child's six-digit cafeteria ID number to complete the account setup. Registration is free. New students will receive their cafeteria ID number at the time of registration or on the first day of school.
