CDW Summer Update

July 23, 2021

A Message from Ms. Santa

I hope that everyone is enjoying their Summer Break! I have been settling in nicely as the new CDW Principal. My journey began on July 1st, and the welcoming that I have received from all stakeholders has been very much appreciated. I look forward to opening the doors of CDW to the students on September 2nd and watching them grow academically, socially, and emotionally throughout the 2021-2022 school year!
