COFFEE WITH CRESPO
is an opportunity for Waters parents to meet in a smaller, more informal environment with Principal Crespo. The Coffees allow parents to bring up topics regarding schoolwide issues for discussion with Principal Crespo and the group as a whole. The last 3 sessions will be held April 24, May 29 from 8:30am-9:30am. Sign up online here. Coffee wtih Crespo will be facilitated by Waters parent Katherine Buoscio; please feel free to contact her with any questions at email@example.com
Coldness greets us. Stay warm.
All students are welcome in the Annex until bell rings at 8:15. Parents can join their kids if they want to in the annex. It may be crowded so Mrs. Crespo asks that if you can get there as close to 8:15 as possible (instead of too early) that will alleviate some crowding. Extra staff will be available to help kids, if needed, to their classrooms from the Annex. (Note that parents need to stop at the annex doors and let their kids continue to their classrooms) Homeroom teachers will continue to greet their students at their entrance doors at 8:15.

BUDGET 101 Presentation for Parents
Monday April 27, 6:00 pm-7:30 pm
Principal Crespo invites you to participate in a presentation about Waters annual school budget. While FY16 has not been released, this is an opportunity to learn more about budget allocations at Waters. This is "workshop" to help parents better understand how the CIWP(Continuous Improvement Work Plan) and a CPS neighborhood school budget impacts decision-making. Using Waters FY15 budget as an example, we will cover SBB (Student-Based Budgeting), SGSA (state funding), teacher allocation, enrollment counts, Diverse Learners, and more. The presentation will also address class size, building capacity, classroom usage, and a brief history of the last decade at Waters.
After the "Budget 101" presentation, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. This is a learning opportunity for all parties involved. We look forward to seeing you.
Communications Team Brainstorming Session
From school tours to the welcome packet, and Green Notes to our websites/social media groups, the Waters community has many avenues for getting the word out to families and community members. LSC Communications Chair Terri Versace is recruiting new members to the Communications Team, particularly committed volunteers with fresh ideas and an enthusiasm for teamwork.
Join us for a brainstorming session!
Please fill out which days work best for you at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2JCDW7X
