Sharing the Love on Valentine’s Day

ESE students had a unique opportunity to share the love around Valentine’s Day. The ESE Helping Ninjas club took a field trip on February 12 to Sunrise on Old Meridian retirement and assisted living facility. Students brought homemade cards and valentines to pass out to residents. It was incredible to see the generosity and care come from those students. They were elated to pass out their cards and spread cheer for Valentine’s Day. Thank you to the parents who signed your student(s) up for this service field trip.

On Valentine’s Day at ESE we celebrated the holiday of love by having our own Valentine’s party. Students made cards to take home and played Valentine’s gym games where they had to do everything with their “valentine.”

Spring is around the corner, and so is the CWE garden

Spring 2019 was an exciting time at College Wood. We broke ground and started our own CWE café garden. The garden is located outside of door 6 by the bus parking lot. The produce grown in this organic garden is brought to the College Wood cafeteria to help make their school lunches.

ESE students have a special opportunity to be a part of this garden. Right now we are starting the seeds for the tomato plants that will be grown in the garden. ESE students will have the chance to water the seeds and transplant the sprouts throughout the next two months. If you are on the school campus this spring, come check out the garden and pull a few weeds!

First, I want to say how thankful we are for our parents/guardians understanding and patience during this time. We are in a very unique situation, and your positivity and support for our team means so much! I also wanted to share that during this time we are continuing to pay our full- and part-time staff. I wanted to take this time to reiterate that ESE is closed through April 10 and School’s Out Spring Break Camp is canceled. Refunds/credits have been issued. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Site Supervisor, they will be able to assist you! Should anything change, we will be in contact with you. I also wanted to share some resources for you while you’re home with kiddos. First, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s parks and greenways are still open! Our parks and greenways are a great place for you and your family to get fresh air and stay active while practicing social distancing. We also have several educational resources on our website,, in the “Kids at Home?” drop down, and plan to post fitness and nature education content regularly on our social media channels (@CarmelClayParks on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). While we greatly miss seeing your kiddo(s) every day, we know we are doing the right thing to keep our families and staff safe. We will see you soon!
