AAP Full Time Level IV Referral Reminder

This is a friendly reminder that the deadline for referring students in Grades 2-7 for AAP full-time Level IV consideration is due no later than January 9, 2020.  Parents are welcome to submit early, but no late referrals will be accepted.  We advise parents not to wait for pending abilities test scores if they would like their student screened. While the Grade 2 screening pool casts a starting point for screening some students, test scores are only one factor in the eligibility decision. 

If you would like more information about Level IV AAP services or the screening process for Level IV, there are two parent presentations available on the AAP public website  that have the same information that was shared at our local school information meetings.  

Referrals can be submitted to the Advanced Academic Resource Teacher, Andrea Warren (@email), at any time up through January 9. 

Trex Film Recycling Challenge

CWES is trying to build our recycling efforts out to the community.  We are entering a nationwide contest to recycle MORE plastic through the Trex Film Recycling Challenge .  These are the everyday items that can be found in your home that usually end up in the trash.  We will have green and white bins in the lobby to place the plastic items in! If we win the contest, the TREX company will build us a bench from the recycled plastic. Thank you for helping the Environmental Team make a greener community!
