August 11, 2022 – Parent Coordinator Update
Hello new and returning CWS families. Some quick announcements and reminder:
Teacher letters will be going out later this month on Bloomz. They will include first day protocols, and class details. We will not be posting supply lists on line, but teachers may include wish lists, or personal items your child may need.
New families will get an invitation to download Bloomz. I also have an email list as a backup. I will be sending out a test email later today. If you do not receive an email from me, please contact me at Dcantwell2@SChools.nyc.gov
School Lunch Forms
In order to save you (and us!) paperwork, I’d like to ask you to fill out your child’s lunch form on line. Even though school lunch is free For all NYC students, The DOE does collect data regarding eligibility for free and reduced lunch, which determines funding for the city and for individual schools. Here is the link

Please reach out to me if you are interested in serving on the Executive Board of the CWS PTA. (President, Treasurer and Secretary) We are required to have an expedited election early in September, so please let me know! This will be an exciting year, and it’s a great time to be involved in envisioning the future! (Thank you to those who have already reached out- we will be in touch)
Please watch the website for CWS Afterschool Clubs info and registration! More information will be available on August 29. There will be offerings for every grade level and it gives the children the opportunity to socialize and make new friends from other classes.
Several of our families use offsite programs as afterschool options:
