Dear Families,

Happy Friday! Despite the sudden cold weather, our students still made the most of the week. Our fourth graders enjoyed their week on the farm upstate! This is truly a wonderful overnight experience where our students come together to oversee chores on the farm, take care of the farm animals, and even prepare their own meals! Thanks to Gabby, Scott, Taylor, Travis, the PTA, and our families for making this unforgettable week possible! Our students in K through fifth grade also got to visit Barnes and Noble in Union Square to purchase a book as part of our book fair – thanks to the PTA for ensuring that every child went home with a new book!

Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts on CWS on the annual school survey, a form went home and you can also access it through this link. The deadline to register for Summer Rising is March 25 – if you have questions about registering for Summer Rising, please reach out to Dorothy.
