I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for the parent participants of the Welcoming Atmosphere Walkthrough we held on December 13: Ruth Velez de Castro, Matt Nolan, Rebecca Kinkead, Chimere Omoigui, Mary Abigail Reinhardt, and Alexa Krezel. This process, facilitated by the Office of Family and School Partnerships, is a way for us to reflect upon our practices to ensure that all families feel informed, engaged and welcomed into CWES. I am eager to share the results at the PTA General Membership meeting next Wednesday. Hope to see you there!
