Academic News
On the behalf of everyone here at Cristo Rey, welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. We are so excited to have you as a part of our school family! We pray that God has blessed you with an amazing summer of relaxation and fun! May this school year be prosperous, joyful, and full of learning. We look forward to all of our parents participating in our school events. Our Parent-Teacher’s Association (PTA) will meet on the first Monday of every month. If there is a holiday on the first Monday, then we will have the meeting on the following Monday night. Our first meeting will be on September 11th at 7:00pm in our auditorium. Also, we now have a parent liaison. Her name is Daniela Zavala Varela. She will be your main contact here at school for all parent events and PTA information. She has great energy and much experience in working with parents and in schools. Daniela is also bilingual in Spanish. You can call Daniela at 612-545-9721 or email her at We all look forward to seeing you soon!



CWSP is excited for a new school year with all of our students! This year, we are part-nering with over 100 companies and organizations to provide meaningful and diverse professional experiences for your students.
For the first week of school, freshmen and sophomores remained at school for extra training before heading to work. Freshmen practiced transportation routes, used the Metro Transit system, explored downtown & refreshed some computer skills. Sophomores completed mandatory Department of Labor training before starting the year at work.
The work schedule has remained the same as last year. Please remember not to sched-ule any appointments, trips or other items on your student’s workday. You’ll find a friendly reminder below:

Freshmen: Monday OR Wednesday
Sophomores: Thursday
Juniors: Monday OR Wednesday
Seniors: Tuesday

All students will rotate Fridays, as always. A color-coded calendar was pro-vided in your student’s academic packet to make it easy to plan family events and other scheduling.
