The Courtenay Elementary Community School Society held its first "Coffee in the Garden" on Thursday, April 25 from 8 AM to just before recess. 

The purpose of event is simple: Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the morning after sending your kids off to school and mingle with other parents in the beautiful morning sunshine.

Parents were able to stop by for a cup of coffee and a muffin. We also received some great feedback on the drink selection, namely, adding some herbal teas and green tea, plus some flavored coffee creams.

Much of the chat today was about introducing CECSS and the possibilities for making Courtenay Elementary a even better school. Some ideas from parents included planting more fruit trees, building a swimming pool, and adding an athletic oval (Courtenay El does have a very large schoolyard).

CECSS plans to hold this event every week, weather permitting, and will work to get the word out earlier on the school's PAC Facebook page and by putting up a few posters.

We hope to see you there. Be sure to bring your own mug and a bit of an appetite!

The kids are in class, so it's time to relax a bit in the sun
