The Superintendent and the Central Office staff would like to take this opportunity to wish each of you a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! We hope that you take this time to visit with your family and friends. We wish you safe travelling while visiting your loved ones, and encourage you to take a moment to rest and rejuvenate during the holiday season.
We are all proud to serve the schools and the wonderful things they are able to accomplish for our students and their families. This is a small, tight knit family group along with our community partners that firmly believes in taking care of our LWCS families and community during the holidays. This is evident by the many baskets of food and the numerous “buckets” of supplies that have been delivered for our neediest families along with an enormous outpouring of love for our children. We are a system like no other and one we are all proud to be able to serve Lake Wales Charter Schools and our community. Thanks for all you do!
May you have the Happiest of Holidays and the Merriest and Brightest New Year!
