Week One at CW — Welcome to Our Website

The 2014-15 school year is off and running! It was a good week at CW as classes started right away and so did sports’teams and arts’tryouts. It was not the coolest week in the school as temperatures and humidity soared,enrollment rose and so did full classes,and the Transportation Authority was still sorting out a few bugs as the week progressed,but the staff and students “weathered”these few hitches with good grace and enthusiasm,LINK Crew helped our Grade 9s begin their high school life with a wonderfully upbeat Day One and the whole school participated in the school BBQ. The DDP program even managed to help Principal Gilmore participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS (pictured). Parents and students are reminded that this website will help keep them up-to-date and connected to CW throughout the year. Please note the Daily Announcements on the left sidebar and Upcoming Events on the right sidebar for daily information. Teacher websites,the School Council website,and other information can also be found on this site. Thank you to our community for all your support and here’s to a great school year!!!
