Principal's Corner

Greetings!

The Charter School at Waterstone is a Cambridge School.  What does this mean?

Cambridge is a program of study that sets the global standard for education internationally.  Beginning at the primary levels and educating young people through their pre- university years. Cambridge works with schools across the world including the United States to transform learning from the discrete to a more comprehensive learning approach. Cambridge schools are a part of a global community that shares the attributes of confidence, responsibility, reflection, innovation, and engagement.

The October attribute is responsibility.  Taking ownership of one's own actions or to act independently while making good decisions without authority. In short, our students are learning about making good choices and expanding their existing knowledge of responsibility and accountability for their choices.  The home continues to teach the same responsibility and accountability and together we develop our worlds future leaders.

I encourage each family to extend this learning by discussing with your children what it means to be responsible and to be held accountable for the choices they make and how they treat others. Our students make many great choices each day and we celebrate these with them.  I believe if the school and our families work together on these initiatives our students, your children, will be successful leaders in our world.

Yours in education,

Mrs. Baggs

Fall/Halloween Shop

The week of October 11th-15th CSW is hosting a fall/Halloween store.  Students are invited to shop the store for costumes, craft items, and Halloween decorations.  Costumes are $5.00 and range in design, crafts and decorations are $1.00 and adult costumes are $10.00.  All proceeds will go to our PTSO.  These funds benefit the school with various projects.

Candy Donations

Grade levels are collecting bags of candy for the Trunk or Treat portion of our Family Fun event.  Please write your child's name and teacher's name on the bags and send to school with your child.  The grade level bringing the most candy will earn a field day.  Deadline for candy is October 26th.

Our grade levels are competing to see which grade level brings the most candy.  The students are very excited about this competition for two reasons, the candy and the incentive.  Help support your child and the school's event.  Currently the Kindergarten is running away with the competition.

If you would like to decorate a trunk in the Trunk or Treat part of this event please email rvandemark@charterk12.com
