Friday Notes for 8/17/18


PTSA Corner

8/17/18 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 You may turn forms in to the school office or bring it to our pre-Back-to-School night BBQ on August 21st at 5 pm. We look forward to seeing you there and at many of our upcoming events!  We will announce our membership challenge on Tuesday night, too!



PTSA Upcoming Events:

Pre-Back to School Night BBQ
Tuesday, August 21st
5:00 – 6:15 pm

Join us at CCCK8 school and enjoy dinner along with your Coal Creek Canyon K8 family.  Please bring your family and a side dish or dessert to share.  PTSA will provide the main dish and beverages.  Please sign-up to bring something on our sign up:

Back to School Night Presentation
Tuesday, August 21st
6:00 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.


Event Planner

The events we host throughout the year are very important for both fundraising and community building.  If you are interested helping us to plan our events throughout the year, including Back to School Night, Trick or Treat Street, Men Make A Difference Day, and the talent show/silent auction, then let us know.  This is a big job, so it does not need to be one person.  Just let us know how much or how little you’d be interested in doing.

Our first meeting is September 17th.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Jody Dickson,, 303-588-6639.


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.
