School Directory:

This year, the school will not be publishing a school directory due to privacy rules they need to follow.  We realize that is an important resource for so many, so we are building one of our own. If you wish to be included in the directory, please  go to and input your information.

Gift Card fundraiser:

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.)

Community Event:
Suicide Prevention Workshop
December 14th – 1 – 2:30 pm – Blackhawk Police Station

If someone you know was considering suicide, would you recognize the warning signs and know how to help? Colorado is consistently ranked as one of the top ten states for suicide rates.

Classroom Enrichment Support Fund
In recent years, the PTSA has provided a classroom enrichment fund in order to provide financial resources for field trips, guest speakers, and other ways of learning at the classroom level. This year we are providing $300 per classroom. Enrichment opportunities often cost between $50 – $300, so we welcome you to contribute to this fund to help the teachers provide these unique learning opportunities. Any funds you donate will be applied to your student(s)’ classroom fund and will help expand what the teachers are able to do. You may contribute online at:
