Convocation 2019
 
We had an overflow crowd on Monday, Aug. 26, in the main theater at the Regional Center for the Arts for the annual convocation and breakfast to welcome C.E.S. employees back for a new school year. After introducing the Leadership Team and talking about the great work of the C.E.S. Foundation, Executive Director Dr. Charles Dumais introduced new employees and longtime employees celebrating anniversaries, including a pair who have been with us for 35 years. Next, he introduced our Paraprofessional of the Year, Barbara Stevens of Six to to Six Magnet School in Bridgeport, and our Teacher of the Year, Carrie Evans of Six to Six. Both are now in contention for the statewide award. ... Dr. Dumais closed the ceremony by talking about services we offer public school districts in Fairfield County and plans to make the agency stronger, inside C.E.S. and for the districts we serve.
