  • Literacy Carnival Night was a Blast!

  • Parent Engagement


    Hi parents/guardians,

    At CWES, we are always striving to increase Parent and Family Engagement! We love input from our parents. At the beginning of each school year, we have our Annual Title 1 Meetings. These meetings help to explain specifics about what it means to be a Title 1 School. If you were unable to attend, please visit the Parent and Family Engagement Section folder. The PowerPoint is available. If you click on the small volume icon on each page, you can hear the voiced presentation that was presented at the beginning of the year.

    Also, at the end of each school year, all parents are invited to attend our End-of-the-Year Parent Meeting. During this meeting, we discuss many aspects of what happens each year at CWES.

    Examples of what we discuss include but are not limited to:

    • Revisions/Corrections to our CWES Parent/Student/Teacher Compact 
    • How our Title 1 monies were spent this school year
    • Suggestions for how monies can be used for next year
    • Suggestions/brainstorming for improvements at CWES
      • ideas for more Parent & Family Engagement activities
      • suggestions on how to improve what we already have in place
      • suggestions/new ideas
    • discussions about our CWES Continuous Improvement Plan

    If you have been unable to attend one of these meetings, please feel free to visit the Parent and Family Engagement section and complete the Input Form. Your input is very important to us. 


    Many Thanks,

    Mrs. Link 

    Title 1 Teacher
