News from Ms. Cross

Greetings CWE Families!

This week, I had the pleasure of going to each classroom to conduct the MBF Body Safety Lessons. During these presentations, we discussed the 5 Safety Rules that are important to know in the event of an emergency situation. No matter who you are, knowing the 5 Safety Rules are excellent strategies that can protect children as well as help the adults in their life keep them safe. Below, I have attached a Body Safety information sheet link that will be helpful for parents/guardians in reviewing these rules with students as well as teaching them important information that can ensure their safety. Thank you and have a great weekend!

Body Safety Talking Tips for Parents

Bullying Presentations will take place September 25th - 29th in combined classrooms by grade level.

Robotics Club

While we enjoyed the success of the CWE Robotics team last year, we will not be offering a Robotics Club for the 2023-2024 school year, due to the lack of a teacher sponsor.

Please remember that all our College Wood students have the opportunity to explore robotics concepts and grow their STEM skills during our weekly STEM specials classes. Students in grades 3-5 also utilize VEX robotics kits throughout the year. 

Volunteer Interest Form on Membership Toolkit

 Get Involved with the PTO! Let us know what events or committees you are interested in by filling out our Volunteer Interest Form. This does NOT commit you to participate, but allows committee chairs to reach out to you when the time arrives to start planning.

*If you filled this out last spring, no need to do it again unless things have changed for you.*
