What's Happening Now

Donation Drive 2016 ------------------------------>


 The 2016 Donation Drive kicks off on August 7th and runs through August 26th.


Donations of any dollar amount are appreciated, but we are recommending a $50 donation per child.  Our PTO is very active and gives back 100% of donations received to CWE. 

For the 2016 Donation Drive we have several incentives to help us meet our donation goal.

  • Any amount = CWE Car Sticker
  • $50 = CWE Car Sticker, 1 Donation Drive T-Shirt
  • $100 = CWE Car Sticker, 2 Donation Drive T-Shirts
  • $150 = CWE Car Sticker, 3 Donation Drive T-Shirts, $15 Book Fair Voucher

Our goal for the 2016-2017 school year is $23,000.  What do we use all that money for?

Field Trips, Classroom Magazine Subscriptions, Family Fun Nights, Recess Equipment, Teacher & Staff Grants, Library Books, Bingo Night, Science Night, Class Parties, Summer Reading Program, 5th Grade Party, and so much more!

The students will get to celebrate with each donation milestone we obtain this year.  After the Donation Drive ends, there is an all-school convocation to celebrate.  Below are the fun activites we have planned for this years milestones.

  •  $7,000 = Mrs. Olssen will skip, not walk, wherever she goes all day
  • $10,000 = Extra Recess
  • $13,000 = Dress like a superhero day
  • $15,000 = Sit anywhere at lunch
  • $18,000 = Mrs. Olssen camps at school (for every additional $500 raised an additionl staff member will stay)
  • $21,000 = CWE staff members will dress up like a superhero.
  • $23,000 = CWE staff pie in the face
  • Over $26,000 = Exciting new purchase for the school (to be announced soon)
  • Do you want to make Mr. Morris into a human sundae? The classroom that has 100% participation (a donation is made on behalf of each student) and has the highest total dollar amount of donations will get to pour sundae toppings on Mr. Morris at the Donation Drive Convocation.

College Wood Staff Favorite Things

 favorite things

During the seasons of giving and special recognition, families often wonder what teachers and staff members want or need most.  

While no tangible gifts are ever expected, a list of classroom wishes and staff favorites are available to parents and students to make potential gift giving decisions simpler.
