Enrollment Picking Up at CSWS for this Fall
The Development Office is excited to report that interest from new families outside of CSWS has really picked up this spring.  We now have over 30 potential new students joining our school for this fall. This is much more than in the past few years and especially encouraging as we head into our summer enrollment season.  Miss Christl's 3-Day Morning Glory class is now full and we are starting a wait list!
You may see some new faces visiting classes in the remaining days of this school year.  As always, please extend your usual warm Cedar Springs welcome.
We are still accepting applications for many classes, especially our two 5-Day Kindergartens, so please keep spreading the word!
