Friday Notes for 1/19/18


PTSA Corner

1/19/18 Friday Notes



Upcoming PTSA Events:
C3AC/PTSA Budget Priority and PTSA General Membership Meetings
Monday, January 22nd
6:00 – 8:00 pm
January’s meeting is a very important two-part meeting. From 6 – 7 pm, we will have the opportunity to share with the school our priorities as family and community members about how we want to see the school build its
budget for next year. If you want the school to hear where you would like them to spend their money, then this is the meeting to share that information as well as listen to other people’s priorities.
Then from 7 – 8 pm we will have our standard monthly meeting where we will. We will also be developing action items around our Friends of Rachel Club support goal. We will also gather feedback about the Men Make A
Difference Day event as well as (gulp!) start planning for the silent auction and talent show so we can finish up the necessary fundraising for this year.

GOAL PROGRESS: We are just BARELY over our goal for an average of 10 people per meeting, so we still need 10 or more people to come to Monday’s meeting to continue to meet that goal! Especially with the school budget topic, we hope to see you there to make your voice heard!

Shop to Support our School!!

Did you know?!?  You can support our school financially JUST BY DOING YOUR NORMAL SHOPPING?!?  Pick up a King Soopers card in the school office, use it while shopping, refill it often, and a portion of your purchases will go to our school.  Do you shop at Amazon?  Switch to, designate Coal Creek Canyon K-8 PTSA as your organization, and a portion of your purchases will support our school.  (It works exactly the same, including with Prime, but donates a little, too.) To make it easy, here is the link to tie your Smile account to CCCK-8 PTSA:

2018 – 2019 Teacher Appreciation

Our very dear Laura Graves is resigning from her position for next year as teacher appreciation coordinator.  If you are interested in showing all of our appreciation for our teachers and staff how much we appreciate everything they do by organizing four staff meals over the year and preparing occasional gifts and special treats for them, then this is the job for you.  It doesn’t take as much time as the Special Events work, but it still VERY important.

If you or someone you know might be interested in either of these positions, please contact Jody Dickson,  Feel free to contact Laura, too, in order to get more information.




Stay tuned on our website or on our Facebook page for more information on upcoming programs. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, concerns, please feel free to contact me.
