CHARLES E. WALTERS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL


Dear CEW Families,


It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all back for the 2020-2021 school year. I hope that you had the opportunity to enjoy some time with family and friends this summer and are ready for the start of the new school year. These are truly unprecedented times and we realize that you want to make sure that procedures are put in place to ensure the safety and well-being of your children. Please know that the entire staff and faculty have been working hard to ensure a safe and successful opening. As the father of two daughters, I understand the immense trust you place in us each and every day.  We will constantly strive to meet your expectations and cultivate your child’s growth socially, emotionally, and academically. Thank you for your confidence. As parents, we are always understandably nervous for a new year so I would like to put you at ease knowing that during the first few days the hallways will be staffed with extra faculty to guide your child to their classrooms and the teachers will be welcoming everyone for the start of their new adventure. Additional safety measures will be put in place to ensure that students are socially distancing, wearing masks, and most of all are comfortable with the entire process. One of our goals is for your child to feel loved by their teacher while simultaneously being motivated to accomplish their coursework. 

Although we may not be able to have in person events as we have done in the past; we look forward to virtual events that will enhance your child’s learning throughout the school year. The PTA organizes many of these activities and are always looking for volunteers to ensure its success. I look forward to seeing you at these virtual events. It is crucial for parents to build a strong connection with the school as it will aid in your child’s achievement. We will be having Back to School Night and our first PTA meeting in September. Even though September is busy, filled with hectic schedules, I urge you to carve out some time for these important events as it will better prepare you and your child for the year ahead.  

There are many people that I would like to acknowledge who have been working tirelessly all summer long, getting the building ready for September.  We are very appreciative of our custodial staff, clerical team, PTA, teachers, and support staff for ensuring that the building and our programs are ready for all of your children.  It truly takes a village and our team has done an extraordinary job.

It is important to us that you and your child have a successful year so please reach out to your child’s teacher, our office staff, or administration if you have any questions or concerns.  We pride ourselves on being a family here at CEW and are dedicated to the pursuit of educational excellence.  Thank you and have a wonderful year!


Sincerely,


Brian Foster

Principal
