Please help with a BIG Fundraising Goal

For the past year, we have been trying to fundraise for a supplemental reading program that is really important for the students who are struggling with reading early in their education.  We already have the “Leveled Literacy Intervention” program for K – 2 grades.  Now we are trying to purchase the next level so the students that are still struggling with reading after 2nd grade can continue to benefit from the program.  It is a BIG ask, but we think it is really important for the students that need it.  Ms. Little has started a Donors Choose campaign: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/eagles-soaring-in-reading/2726973/  Please go online and donate as much as you can.  Then forward to friends, family and businesses that you think would help support this important effort.

HUGE THANK YOU to Laura Olson for supporting the Reflections program with Ms. Norris, and for Heather McLaughlin for agreeing to be our Secretary!  Two critical roles filled!  Can you help with these important tasks?

Poster Maker: Bring out your creative side by making posters!!  We need help promoting several events within the school and would like someone to make posters we can hang at the school.  I would like to make them reusable as much as possible, so we can keep them simple and/or plan for being able to change dates on some of them. Great project for those who like to be creative or do other paper craft (like scrapbooking.)  If digital creation is your expertise (or a skill you want to develop), then it could be done on the computer.  We just need to be able to print them.  This project can be done entirely at home!  We would make a list of posters we’d like made, and then you can do them as time permits.  If interested in this opportunity, please let Jody Dickson know.  Jody@Dickson.org or x3568

Business SponsorsDo you own or work at a business that would like to advertise to our school community?  If so, consider becoming a CCCK-8 Business Sponsor.  By supporting our school, you are supporting the community that supports your business.  We have some significant fundraising goals for this year, but we have different levels of sponsorship and one of them will fit your business’ needs.  For more for information, please visit our website: http://ccck8ptsa.org/fundraising/business-sponsorship/

Classroom ParentsWe still need Classroom Parents for the following grades.  These people are responsible for organizing classroom parties and being the liason for the teacher to the PTSA and parent community.   If you are able to serve in this role, please contact Jody Dickson, jody@dickson.org.

  • 5th Grade
  • 6th Grade
  • 7th/8th Grade

1st General Membership Meeting Tonight

image002

Tonight is our FIRST C3AC and PTSA meeting for this school year!  

Monday, September 18th
CCCK-8 Library
C3AC will begin at 6 pm.  The PTSA will join for the shared meeting at 6:30 pm, then will host the General Membership Meeting from 7 – 8 pm.

In the PTSA meeting, we will be kicking off planning for this school year which means we’ll need to be making some critical decisions around goals, financials, upcoming events and more. There is NOT a more important meeting to attend this year if you want to influence our priorities for the upcoming school year. Participating in these meetings is also a great way to learn about what is happening in our school to make it the best learning environment for our kids.

For the full agenda, please click below.
September 2017 Agenda

PLEASE HELP: We have not yet identified a Secretary for our board this year. If you or someone you know is interested, please let us know. We can certainly cover for tonight, but will need someone to fill this critical role in the months to come.

As always, if you have any thoughts, comments, suggestions, please send them our way at ccck8ptsa@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you tonight!

The C3AC and PTSA meetings will be on Monday, September 18th.  C3AC will start at 6 pm.  PTSA will join that meeting for a shared time at 6:30 pm when we will get an update from the Principal and staff.  In the PTSA meeting, we will be kicking off planning for this school year which means we’ll need to be making some critical decisions around goals, financials, upcoming events and more.  There is NOT a more important meeting to attend this year if you want to influence our priorities for the upcoming school year.  Participating in these meetings is also a great way to learn about what is happening in our school to make it the best learning environment for our kids.

8/18/17 Friday/Monday Notes

 

 

Welcome to another wonderful school year at Coal Creek Canyon K8.  We are excited for this new school year!  If you are not familiar with your PTSA, we are your Parent Teacher Student Association.  We are a group of dedicated individuals who work together to enhance our children’s learning experiences and opportunities at our school.  We do this by:

  • Hosting events, assemblies, field trips and after school programs that complement what our kids are learning in the classroom.
  • Organizing volunteers to support our teachers and school staff.
  • Fundraising and buying equipment and supplies that our teachers need in their classrooms but otherwise wouldn’t have access to.
  • Advocating for our children and their needs

Participating in the PTSA is a great way to stay connected to what is happening in our school community.  We count on your support.  Join the PTSA by using the form included with this Friday Flyer or by going online to our website at http://www.ccck8ptsa.org/join-ptsa/ You may turn forms in to the school office or bring it to our pre-Back-to-School night BBQ on August 22nd at 5 pm. We look forward to seeing you there and at many of our upcoming events!

Jefferson County Public Library Summer Reading – Let’s Prevent the Summer Slide and Build a Better World!
Did you know that kids who don’t read and keep their minds active over the summer can lose up to two months of learning progress by the time school begins in the fall? Prevent that summer slide by participating in Jefferson County Public Library’s summer reading program. Meet your own reading goal, win a finisher prize, and help Jeffco read 30 million minutes. Register and log minutes (after June 1) here: https://summerreading.jeffcolibrary.org, and pick up your prizes when you go to a library.

In addition, Jefferson County Public Library is awarding $800 to one school in five categories with the highest percentage of finishers based on school enrollment. Read and help CCCK8 win!!

Help Wanted
2017 – 2018 Secretary / Membership Chair

We have one open position for our board next year.  The secretary is responsible for taking and preparing meeting notes from PTSA meetings.  Since it is not a huge time commitment, we have combined it with the membership chair.  As membership chair, you manage documentation and reporting related to our annual membership.  It includes some promotion of becoming a member as well as twice annual reports to Colorado PTA.  The commitment is heavier at the beginning of the year, but then tapers out to a few hours a month.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Jody Dickson, jody@dickson.org, x3568.

weecree

Wee Creekers is gearing up for another summer of fun! If your child, aged 5 – 12 years, needs some structure to their day, some friends to hang out with, adventurous sites to explore, and some great new info to learn, then Wee Creekers is the program for you! We believe in a whole-child approach. We feed the mind, as well as the body, heart, and soul because we believe in LIFE lessons! We give kids a “mostly outdoors, hands-on, kind-to-the Earth, generous to one another, safety first, where should we go next?” kind of summer. We have a 15 passenger van, a Highly Experienced Teacher and an energetic teenager waiting to explore the world around us with eager school-agers. We go swimming, hiking, boating, to museums, to fishing holes, to the library. We climb, catch, kick, read, dig, create, calculate, get dirty, explore. We do it all, and we do it with amazing teacher:child ratios. That Y camp? 20 kids to 1 college kid. Us? 13 kids to 2 teachers for travel and 16 kids to 2 teachers for sticking around. Can you beat that? I know you can’t! Our ratios mean your child’s ideas are heard and very likely incorporated into the day. Small groups mean less chaos, less bullying, more connection, and more guaranteed fun. Our rates are between $40-$55/day, depending on enrollment schedule. We are 100% GMO free and our fruits, veggies and milk are always organic. Please call Linda at (303) 642-2223 for more info and to get signed up today. Space is limited!!
