CPE 2 Summer Update, July 23 2014

Hi to all of you,

We have updated the updates:
Please add to the dates you save, Sunday, October 19th, 2014 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk AND our annual CPE II Fall Fair on Saturday, October 25th.

We also wanted you to note that back packs should not have wheels.

We have learned that new school bus route and stop information will only be available after 08/26/2014. So stayed tuned for an update then.

We have had questions about registration for after school music lessons. To register go to and click on After School. This is for former students as well as new applicants.

Please make sure your child is keeping up with their summer reading/logs and packets. These should be brought to school the first day of school.

Also remember that our school phones are still down, but you can call 212 860 8884<tel:212%20860%208884> to get through. Of course, we have limited staffing during the summer and it is best to email.

And, remember that all emailed announcements and updates can be found at

School opens for all students on Thursday, September 4th. Per K and Kindergarten students will have an early dismissal (details to follow) on the 4th and 5th of September. All other students have a full day starting on September 4th. School hours for CPE II will be 8:20 to 2:40, with a morning recess and breakfast available from 7:30AM.

There is no need to purchase any school supplies for your child. You only need to purchase a full size book bag (that can hold a 9” by 12” folder.) NO WHEELS PLEASE. On the first day of school students will receive an envelope which the PA will use to collect supply money for the year. This contribution, which will cover the costs of all school supplies and a CPE II T-shirt, will be $40. Supplies will include, but not be limited to, pencils, folders, notebooks, makers, book baggies and, of course, our famous PURPLE FOLDER for parent/teacher communication.

Please save the following dates:
Thursday, September 4th: Welcome breakfast 9AM
Monday, September 8th: Our first Health and Wellness Committee meeting after dropoff (8:30AM)
Tuesday, September 23rd for an evening open house for adults. 5:30PM
Wednesday, October 1st Parent Workshop on Gender Inclusivity led by Jean Malpas, the director of the Gender & Family Project (GFP), 5:30PM
Sunday, October 19th Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Central Park
Saturday, October 25th CPE II Fall Fair

The PA has also decided to sponsor a beginning of year lice check for all students and staff so that we can prevent the mid-year spread of lice that seems to happen each year. It will take place on Monday, September 8th.

We still have new people registering and some students moving. We will finalize new class placements at the end of the summer and send them to you before the school year starts. In addition, bus route information is not available yet, but we will be sending it out as soon as it is available.

We will be sending out a survey to assess family needs/Interest for afterschool programs.

We are updating the family handbooks and it will be available in September.

Please feel free to email with any questions or concerns.
