Teacher Appreciation Week!

May 1st - May 4th is National Teacher Appreciate Week.

When we have asked our teachers what makes them feel most appreciated.  The overwhelming response was simple yet powerful: “Thank Yous.” They love hearing what you’ve been appreciating about your time here at Community School.  So drop off a card or stop by with a thank you and that will go a long way!

If you’d like to bring a tasty food item, please remember that we are a nut free facility.  Staff have said some of their favorites include: Fruit, Mac & Cheese, salads, healthy choices, CHOCOLATE & BACON! 

If food or words aren’t your thing but you are still interested in a finding  a token of appreciation for the teachers, an Amazon gift card is versatile and always welcome.

However big or small all is appreciated by our teachers!

Slide into Spring!

SLIDE INTO SPRING!
CSWS PLAY STRUCTURE REPLACEMENT PROJECT

As you know, CSWS strongly believes in the benefits of children learning, exploring, and playing in outdoor spaces.   

Our Big Yard has a well-worn, well-loved play structure that is, sadly, on its last legs.  We are proactively looking to replace it BEFORE any safety issues arise. 

Unfortunately, this is a big expensive item for us as an organization. We could be looking at between $8,000 - $15,000 (or more depending on styles and removal costs!)

To get ready for the expense, we are kicking off a spring fundraising drive.  No products, no gimmicks, just a straight-up donation drive.  100% tax deductible!
