CCES at Home Learning

CES is proud to employ PLU students to serve as Big Buddies Mentors at James Sales Elementary. Designed as an After School Enrichment Program (ASEP), Big Buddies pairs PLU student mentors with James Sales students to encourage academic growth, social development, and provide supplemental support for those who may not otherwise receive it.

The Big Buddies are excited to provide the curriculum in a digital format as a resource for at home learning available to all. Each week a new theme will be identified, along with a story, craft, and time for reflection. By offering multiple learning methods, Big Buddies hope to build and reinforce understanding of the weekly theme.

This page will serve as an archive of the weekly content, as well as home to other resources for at home learning. To engage with the Big Buddies, follow us on social media! New content will be posted on Instagram: @PLUCCES and Facebook: PLU CCES at the times below. 

Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday – 2:00pm     |    Thursday – 10:30am.    |     Friday – 3:00pm
