Recycle Your Eclipse Glasses at School!

The Hub (Cincinnati Recycling and Reuse Hub) will be collecting glasses to send to students in Latin America who will experience an eclipse in October. If you would like to recycle your eclipse glasses, please bring them to the front office, and we will take them to The Hub!

Earth Day Cleanup at Neighboring Parks!

Two parks that are close to our school’s building, and our heart, are Dale Park and Ann Buntin Becker Park. Both need a little love. The honeysuckle is invading. The weeds are unwelcome. The trash needs to find its way to a can.

In partnership with Sustainable Mariemont, join us on Sunday, April 21 as we clean up the parks. All ages are welcome. Come out and show your support for our community as we continue to be a school that cares for our land.

Sunday, April 21 starting at 12:00 noon.

Meet & Greet with Erin Spinney, rising First Grade Teacher!

Please join us for an informal Meet & Greet with rising First Grade teacher, Erin Spinney, on Friday, April 26, from 8:15- 9:00am in the CWS handwork room. This is a chance for parents to meet Erin, and learn more about CWS Grade School program.

We will have coffee available. Feel free to bring a breakfast item to share! We hope to see you there!

Mark Your Calendars for May Day — Friday, May 3rd!

It is with great joy that we invite you to join us in celebrating our May Festival on Friday, May 3rd. May Day has been celebrated for centuries to herald the arrival of summer, and we are thrilled to be able to enjoy this festival as a community.

All school celebrations take place at Ann Becker Park, which is just a short distance from school. Times are as follows:

9-11am: NatureTots, Preschool, and Kindergarten

1:30pm: Grades 1-12

Please arrive at Ann Becker Park a few minutes before your child's celebration is set to begin. This event is weather permitting. In the case of inclement weather, a text will be sent out in advance of the event. Our current rain date is Tuesday, May 7th (again, weather permitting).

More details will be sent in the coming weeks, but please mark your calendars now and plan to attend! Class teachers typically ask parents for donations of crown-making supplies — ivy, vinca, ribbon, and flowers — so consider harvesting some greenery or flowers from your garden or plan to pick up a bouquet. Parent volunteers are also needed for crown-making on the morning of Friday, May 3rd, so consider blocking out some time if you'd like to help!
