School Supplies Project Manager
Tis the season for planning for next year! We’d like to sell school supplies again for this upcoming year as a service to our school families… which means more time to enjoy summer break! The project manager will get next year’s school supplies lists from the staff, then work with the provider to organize the sale. Typically orders are all online, so we only need to promote it! If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Jody Dickson, email@example.com, x3568. Thank you for your continued support!

Summer Soccer Camp
The British are coming back this year!
Our fifth summer of British Soccer Camp will be hosted by the Coal Creek Canyon Park & Recreation District (CCCP&RD) at the Coal Creek Canyon K-8 Turf Field from July 10-14. This week of soccer fun is led by British soccer coaches, and programs are available for kids from ages 3 -16.
Kids can sign up for one or both weeks of camp. Register now to get the free jersey at www.challengersports.com.
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!!
Stay tuned on our website http://www.ccck8ptsa.org or on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/CCCK8PTSA for more information on upcoming programs. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, concerns, please feel free to contact me.
