A website for you and our CCCK-8 family

websiteconstruction As we welcome you to the 2014 – 2015 school year, we also want to welcome you to this new online resource! Part of our organizational mission is to foster communication between the home and the school. We strive for our children to have the best learning experience possible at Coal Creek Canyon K-8. Engaged families and community members will help make that possible. We launched this website to be a resource for our school community so that people can be engaged in what we are doing as an organization for our school. This website is a 24/7 resource for you to get what you need to help your own children and our school as a whole.

On our website you’ll find:

– information about the programs and events we offer throughout the year. Most are offered as a way to offer our students new experiences and different ways to learn. You will find information about all our after school programs, fun family events, and in school enrichment offerings.

– links to all our volunteer sign-up forms. Last year, we converted the bulk of our volunteer sign-up to online forms on Volunteer Spot. You will be able to access all of those forms on this website when it is convenient for you. If you are looking for a long term or right-away volunteer opportunity, please visit our Volunteer page.

– the ability to join the PTSA and make donations. You can find out more about our business sponsors, including how to become one! Needless to say, a lot of what we do requires money, so you’ll find information on all the different ways you can support us financially.

– ancillary resources to help you support your students, our school and public schools in general. We have built out a robust section of parent resources to help you help your students with specific curriculum or homework issues. (Feel free to contribute to this, if you have any favorites you use to help your students that you’d like to share.) Also, there are links to Jeffco School District as well as Colorado and National PTA information on our website.

Like all websites, this is a living environment, so come back often! There will be updates every week. You can count on the PTSA section of the school’s Friday Notes email to be a lot shorter as it will mostly refer you to updates on the website!

This website was made possible through a LOT of hard work this summer, particularly by Russ Baker, a parent at our school. We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Russ for putting in a lot of volunteer time building the website and pulling this together for us. I’d also like to thank Maria McVey and Molly Hammar for their work in this effort as well.

Please take a moment to take a look around and get familiar with this new website. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, concerns, please feel free to email Jody Dickson at Jody@Dickson.org or Maria McVey at mcveycjam@gmail.com. keepcalm
