All I can say is Wow and Thank You! The 2014-2015 school year in Cougar Country has been amazing! I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for such a great school year here at Cotswold IB World School. It has been amazing watching our students learn and grow daily.
The commitment and dedication this entire community has shown to Cotswold this year has been exciting to watch! We have all enjoyed the events that make Cotswold so special and a few moments that I would like to highlight would be: Family Spirit Nights, the Barnes and Noble Concert, the Fabulous Fall Parties, the Wonderful Winter Concert, January’s Read A-Thon and Math-A-Thon, February’s Friendship Celebrations, The Daddy Daughter Dance, The GOTR 5K, The Mother Son Event, Talent Shows, The Kindergarten Art Gallery, The First Grade Diamond Del, Second Grade Math Night, The Third Grade Inventions, The Fourth Grade Raleigh Trip, The Fifth Grade Camp Hanes Trip, The Fifth Grade DC Trip, Run for Change, Boosterthon and Celebrate Cotswold!
The Staff at Cotswold is truly amazing! The dedication and hard work of the Staff has not gone unnoticed. Our staff and school have been recognized this year by the District, the State and the Nation. We continue to win grants and awards that let everyone know that we have the best staff in CMS and that we are the best Elementary Magnet School
in the Nation!
As we are planning for next school year I wanted to highlight a few new things that will be happening at Cotswold next year!
- Students will be allowed to enter the building at 8:45 next year.
- All walkers will be released from the Linda Lane exit next year.
- The front of the building will only be used for car riders, no walkers will be released from the front of the building due to heavy construction on Colwick for future building projects.
- All 3rd-5th grade students will be on a 10 point grading scale based on a new grading policy adopted by CMS.
As many of you know The Hash Family is expecting a Precious Baby Boy this summer! Although I will not be on campus to start the school year I will return in late October. The interim for my maternity leave will be confirmed later in the summer.
Again Cotswold Family I just want to say thank you for an amazing school year and remember the BEST IS YET TO COME!!!!
Thank you and enjoy your summer,
