Fall Festival Celebration & 1st PTO Meeting

October 28, Wednesday | 5:00pm-7:00pm | Main Campus

Fall is a time of harvest and change as we prepare for the winter months ahead. Bring your families and come spend time with us! We invite you to make your own Halloween masks, decorate pumpkins, play fall carnival games, dance to music, paint and color fall activity guides, join our trick-or-treat parade, and learn about community resources to support your family.

Our Fall Festival night is also Lights On Afterschool, a celebration of out of school time programming across the nation. The festivities will continue with guest speakers and leaders from the community sharing their stories about the importance of afterschool programs.

The PTO meeting starts at 5pm in the cafeteria.

Free dinner is available to all in attendance. Register here:

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, registration is required and attendance is limited. If you have questions, please email us at or call the main office at 651-917-0073.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Nyob Zoo and Welcome!! We are excited and counting down the days your child(ren) returns to school.

CSE’s top priority is to provide in-person learning for all our young scholars. We have worked tirelessly this summer and during the last two weeks before school starts to ensure that the safety and health of our young scholars and staff is carefully considered.

At the August 18th Board meeting, the directors voted on REQUIRING masks to be worn by everyone, including students, staff, and visitors, in the building. This is just one measure of prevention that CSE knows will help slow the spread of COVID-19 as we transition back to be fully on-site.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will make the necessary adjustments. We will continuously monitor the preventative measures we have implemented and if there are changes, we will communicate that as soon as possible with you.

Please support us in ensuring a healthy school environment by doing the following:

- If your child(ren) has a fever of 100.4 or higher, stay home.

- If your child(ren) has a runny nose and cough, stay home.

- If your child(ren) has chills, sore throat, muscle aches, shortness of breath, or loss of smell or taste, stay home.

In addition, we will be taking the temperature of our young scholars before they get off the bus or enter the building. If they display any of these symptoms and/or have a fever of 100.4 or higher, we will call home. We will require that you pick up your child until your child(ren) is free of these symptoms for 24 hours.

We understand that there may be hardship and concern for loss of learning. We are committed to working with you and your child(ren) to ensure that they received continued academic support during this time. If you have any questions please contact us.

Ua tsaug! Sincerely,

Bao Vang, Chief Executive Officer and Kazoua Kong-Thao, Chief Administration Officer
