8/8/17 Friday/Monday 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 http://www.ccck8ptsa.org/join-ptsa/ You may turn forms in to the school office or bring it to our pre-Back-to-School night BBQ on August 22nd at 5 pm. We look forward to seeing you there and at many of our upcoming events!

Secretary

We have one critical open position for our board this year.  The secretary is responsible for taking and preparing meeting notes from our monthly PTSA meetings.  This role is not a huge time commitment, so it is ideal for someone who wants to know what is going on at the school or who likes to write or document decisions, or (optionally) who is interested in developing some project management skills.  Our first meeting is September 18th.    If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Jody Dickson, jody@dickson.org, x3568.

April Notes

HELP US MEET OUR GOAL!!! We established a goal at the beginning of the year to increase participation in PTSA efforts. One of our measurable goals is averaging 14 people for our meetings this year. We started out strong, but this spring has been light. We need 38 people to come to the PTSA meeting on May 1st in order for us to meet our goal! Please come and invite all the school families you know and a few neighbors, too! These meetings are important and your voice at these meetings is critical. If you have never come to a PTSA meeting before, this is the one to come to!

As always, if you have any thoughts, comments, suggestions, please send them our way at ccck8ptsa@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you Monday night!

Help Wanted

Silent Auction

Our annual silent auction as part of the talent show is coming up QUICK as it will be held on Friday, May 12th.  This is a MAJOR fundraiser for us and helps us be able to help pay for the Enrichment programs we hosted and will host, including next year’s bullying program.  Due to the tight timeframe, we are needing as many hands on deck as possible right now.  If you have ½ an hour that you can help us, recruit products to sell and/or prepare for the event, then WE NEED YOU!  If you can help, please contact Jody Dickson, jody@dickson.org, x3568, and let me know what you think you can do.   Thank you for your continued support!

2017 – 2018 Secretary / Membership Chair

We have one open position for our board next year.  The secretary is responsible for taking and preparing meeting notes from PTSA meetings.  Since it is not a huge time commitment, we have combined it with the membership chair.  As membership chair, you manage documentation and reporting related to our annual membership.  It includes some promotion of becoming a member as well as twice annual reports to Colorado PTA.  The commitment is heavier at the beginning of the year, but then tapers out to a few hours a month.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Jody Dickson, jody@dickson.org, x3568.

weecree

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!!
