VANWAGNEN NEWS

Every act of kindness matters, and over the month of December, we will utilize the Kindness Calendar identified below to spread kindness at CUES.


In addition, Mrs. Schatzle, has gathered organizations in our community to support families in need during the holidays. These families will receive food and gifts for their Christmas. We appreciate Mrs. Schatzle and all of the community organizations for their hard work sharing resources with our community.


This will be our final newsletter for 2020. We are so grateful for this community and the outstanding students we have at CUES. The relationships we share with them are the foundation for our positive school culture. Thank you to all of our CUES families for your continued support, especially during these challenging times.


I wish you all the best over the holidays and throughout the New Year.
