4/27/18 Friday Notes



Thank you for your support at our Silent Auction & Talent Show last Friday. It was a GREAT success. We will be able to buy all the Chromebooks we committed to purchase! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!


Community Events

The Coal Creek Canyon 9Health Fair will be held at the CCCK-8 on Saturday April 28th.  9Health Fair offers low cost health screenings and welcomes the whole community to attend.  Most blood chemistry tests are $20-35, and all other screenings (BP, children’s health, hearing, vision, lung capacity, bone density, etc) are free.
We are still seeking several volunteers to help with registration and screening stations.  Most volunteers do not need any medical experience and will be helping direct participants or assisting the lead at each station.  All volunteers will get a discount off any blood tests they want to have as well.  Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Michele Page at or visit our Facebook page:

You can register as a participant or volunteer at this link:

The CCCIA is still looking for a volunteer to organize the kid volunteers for the Pancake Breakfasts they host. There are four a year, but they only use kids at three of them (February, May and September). This is an EASY volunteer job as there are a few shifts and lots of kids who regularly like to volunteer. They do like the adult volunteer to supervise the kids during the breakfasts themselves, but other volunteers can be recruited for that as well! If you are interested, please contact Bruce Goodwin at x0529 Also contact Bruce if you or your kids are interested in volunteering at the breakfast on May 5th.

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.
