A Message from the Principal
We have made it 7 weeks into the school year and we have a busy month ahead of us. October brings a lot of fun and exciting things such as our Fall dance, Red Ribbon dress up days, our Book Character Parade, and Picture Day. Although this month is full of fun, it is also the time when students and teachers begin to feel tired. It is important that we support one another as a community and make sure that we are taking care of the social and emotional needs of all members of our school. Please take time each day to talk with your kiddo about how school is going and look for ways to support them. Reach out to your child's teacher and let them know you appreciate their hard work. I believe we can have the best October yet if we intentionally spread kindness and make it a priority to take care of one another.
Please make sure you stay up to date with all of the important happenings at CWES by reading all the details below.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to help.
