Spring Picnic: The spring picnic is next Thursday, May 18. Any parents that are willing to make a salad (potato,
pasta, tossed, taco, etc.) for the spring picnic please let Mrs. Pia know as soon as possible.

Spring Program (Noahs Ark): Thank you to everyone who helped, participated, and came to the program. I
believe this was the first musical play CLE has done as a whole school. Thanks for the success everyone and if
you need any business cards to promote the school, please contact school board members, faculty, and staff.

Mrs. Santos & I would like to thank you again for the wonderful surprise farewell.
Mahalo, Mr. Santos
