The germs are out in force this season. We encourage our families to keep unwell students home if they are experiencing symptoms of sickness; runny noses, coughs, aches etc. This ensures a healthy environment for all our students and faculty. Let them rest and heal before returning. Remind your students to wash their hands, drink fluids, rest and eat nutritious foods.

School Lunches: Will your child be absent?  Don't forget to email Chef Lex if you placed an order for school lunch but your child is absent. This will help reduce waste and save you money! Email Chef Lex at

Gear Swap Donations Accepted Anytime! The PA Gear Swap accepts donations all year round! Accepted items include boots, coats, snow pants, layering pieces (i.e. long underwear), and rain gear. Donations can be placed in the bin under the table in the Community Room.

State of the School

Monday, Jan. 29th, 6:00 - 7:30pm in the Gym

This is an opportunity to hear from Board Members and Administrative Faculty on the business and happenings of our amazing school. We will be dedicating a good chunk of the meeting covering the move of the high school to our main campus location. 

Even though this all could sound pretty dry and boring, attendees of past State of the School presentations tend to find them very inspiring and heartwarming. 

This is an adult only event. Babes in arms are always welcome. All parents/guardians at CWS/CWHS are invited to attend.

Open House Is February 3rd!

Please help us promote CWS Open House on Saturday, February 3rd by sharing this info with anyone you know who might be interested!

If you would like to volunteer at Open House, contact Karen Crick at, or sign up to bring food here!
