 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.

The "CWE Staff Favorite Things" spreadsheet can be viewed HERE.
