This summer went by too quickly and the school year has begun for our Coastside students and families. A lot of exciting things are happening at CEF, and we are looking forward to sharing them all with you in the coming weeks.
But first, we'd like to share some exciting news........CEF has a new logo!
In January, CEF Board of Directors decided to take a comprehensive look at our design, messaging, and branding as part of a larger review of all of CEF's communications activities.
The new logo was a big part of our fresh approach, with a goal to evoke our core values of service to community, transparency, sustainability, collaboration and innovation.
We are happy to unveil the new logo, which you'll begin seeing in all CEF venues, most immediately in materials for the Fall Fundraising Campaign. Over the past year, CEF has successfully co-led efforts to bring The Big Lift grant to the district, allocated $168,000 to CUSD programs (on top of the nearly $400,000 allocated the previous two years), funded the launch of a new, district-wide computer science track, delivered more informative content in our online newsletter, the CEF Current, and enhanced our social media presence.
The newly designed logo features a modern, fresh appearance. It preserves the "tree of knowledge" image from the previous logo, but strengthens and simplifies its overall look. The new design also maintains our signature shade of green.
Special thanks to Erik Watts of Erik Watts Design Office for designing CEF's new logo!
We hope you like our new logo and will continue to support CEF's commitment to providing the best possible public education for our deserving students.
