Dear Families,

Happy Friday and happy February! This was a great week with our 5th grade writing celebrations and ice skating for some of our students – all students in grades 1-5 will have the chance to ice skate either today or next Friday. 

We are awaiting final inspections of the yard. I will let families know once the schoolyard has been declared safe by the DOB and DOE and can be reopened. 

There are three important forms families need to complete:

  • Family Income Inquiry Form (formerly known as the lunch form) – CWS can earn extra money for our school’s budget if everyone completes this form. Every student needs a form completed, not just one per household. All families, regardless of immigration status, should complete this online form. **Our school does not get the results of this form, it is used by central to determine school funding. All meals are always free for all students, but please complete this form so our school can earn extra money!

  • Housing Form – A form needs to be completed for each student. These went home in backpacks, please ask your child’s teacher or Joyce for another copy if you need one. 

  • School Surveys – A copy went home in your child’s backpack. You can mail your completed survey in the enclosed envelope, or submit it online using the unique code on your survey. Please do not bring them to the office, as we don’t see individual results, only the city does. 

As a reminder, for student safety and to minimize classroom disruptions, parents and guardians must check in at the office at any point during the school day. Parents/guardians cannot go directly to their child’s classroom for any reason. If your student is late they should come to the office and if you are there to pickup early, you must come to the office and the child will be called to come meet you there. 

Mark your calendars:

  • Monday, February 19 – Friday, February 23 – No School, Mid-Winter Break

Have a great weekend!

Warmly,
Maria
