Painting the town!

As part of a Cary Elementary/PTA community connection, the Art Club was given the opportunity to decorate several ceiling tiles for the new Tijuana Flats in Cary. Mrs. Masouras drew the designs on the tiles in advance and the students worked together painting them during Art Club. Below are a few pictures of the students working on the tiles. Be sure to visit Tijuana Flats in May to check them out in person!

Congratulations to Theresa Rubes

CES_RubesTheresa Rubes, one of our Cross-Categorical Resource (CCR) teachers, is a semi-finalist for the WCPSS Diane Kent-Parker First Year Teacher of the Year Award! Even though Ms. Rubes is a first year teacher, she is not new to working in education. She was a special education teacher assistant for 4 years at Salem Elementary. Before that she was a substitute teacher.

Ms. Rubes has also spent a lot of time volunteering for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, being a team captain for 9 years, serving on the committee for 2 years, and chairing an event for 2 years.

When asked her favorite part about teaching at CES she says, “THE PEOPLE! The administration and staff at CES have been so friendly and supportive this year. Parents have been welcoming, and of course, the students are the best! I cannot imagine a better place to have started my teaching career.”
