Parent Resource Library

Sponsored by the Climate Committee and located in the Círculo Room (at the end of the first grade corridor, facing the blacktop), the Parent Resource Library includes highly recommended parenting books and numerous great books for children that teach social and emotional intelligence, friendship skills, respecting differences, and much more. Books can be borrowed and returned by the CCE community as needed.

A group of dedicated CCE parents compiled a "Wish List" of titles to start the library based on recommendations from several sources including the former CCE school counselor, a local preschool director, Welcoming Schools: A Project of The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundation for Early Learning, and the Committee for Children.

Thank You!

With the help of parents who purchased Wish List books, and SIPAT funds allocated to purchase the remaining books, our new Parent Resource Library has ALL books shown on our Wish List  over 100 titles!  plus an additional 33 titles generously donated by parents. If you have any questions, or would like to suggest any additions to the library, please email Climate Committee Coordinator, Sylvia Kwon.
