I would be happy to talk about the impact that Alignment Southwest Charlotte has had on Lake Wylie Elementary.  This year, we have benefitted in a myriad of ways.

First, Alignment Southwest has served as a forum for us to find partnerships that have supported the character development within our school.  Numerous speakers have come out to speak at our Chief Example for Others lunches.  These lunches are a chance to recognize the students that are following our character program and provide them guidance on how they can continue to strive as students.   Additionally, we have been able to count on numerous reading buddies that we also met at Alignment meetings.

Second, Alignment Southwest has served as a liaison for many of our needs.  When we have mentioned needing support with clothing in our nurse’s office, Alignment Southwest stepped up to help us stock our closet.   Volunteers have been here for our school STREAM and STEM Nights.  Many of the events we have here at Lake Wylie are supported by the partnerships we have developed through this program.

Finally, our robotics team has benefited greatly from the support of Alignment Southwest.   We have received funding for additional resources and mentoring for our teachers.  We are greatly appreciative of this continued support.   Each and every time we have asked for the support of Alignment Southwest, we have received a wonderful response.  We are thankful to have such great community support that is organized around a similar vision.

Thank you,

Bobby French

Assistant Principal
