Together we make such a difference! We are grateful to the many parents, alumni, grandparents, students, and friends who have contributed their time and talents in our many Parent Association events. Their efforts positively impact our entire school community, especially our children, and contribute toward enriching their experience at CWA. Together we successfully supported Charlie’s Picnic, the Parent Association opening meeting, Founders’ Day breakfast, and taking faculty and staff “out to the ballgame” for the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Luncheon.
Together we celebrated our 30th annual Spirit Auction. Solid Gold, co-chaired by Jamie Nagaich and Nicole Rode, raised $314,752 for CWA after expenses! Whether you sponsored or donated an item, a talent, time, a faculty ticket, or spirit dollars, your efforts positively impacted our entire school community. Each person’s contribution aided in our fund-raising efforts.
Thank you for attending all-school Parent Association meetings, supporting the Inspirational Faculty Award, and coming to PA-supported educational events such as the screening and discussion of The Mask You Live In.
Thank you for helping to make Charles Wright Academy remarkable!
