8/21/15 Friday 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. You may turn forms in to the school office or bring it to our pre-Back-to-School night BBQ on August 25that 5 pm. We look forward to seeing you there and at many of our upcoming events!
PTSA Upcoming Events:
Pre-Back to School Night BBQ

Back to School Night Presentation
Tuesday, August 25th
6:15 pm in CCCK8 Gym, then individual Classrooms
We’ll kick off the evening with a presentation by the school and the PTSA. We’ll be sharing information about what we do, what we can do for you and what we need from you. After the all-school presentation, there will be two sessions in each classroom for individual grade level presentations. ALL students will be expected to stay with their parents during the presentations. We want to make sure that #1.) all the students stay safe during the evening and that #2.) The students hear what their parents hear from their teachers about their expectations.
PTSA Help Wanted:
We are launching a new volunteer opportunity dedicated for men. Eagle Eyes is a program where men are present in the school during school hours, helping the students and staff and keeping watch for good and bad behaviors in and around the school. We will be discussing this opportunity at Back To School night during the 6:15 pm presentation at the gym. Orientation for the program will be on September 28th with a full launch of the program in October. In the meantime, if you are interested in participating or want to find out more, please contact Jason Moat, 303-378-4500
