9/15/17 Friday/Monday Notes

 

 

Upcoming Events
Monthly General Membership Meeting
Monday, September 18th
6:30 – 8:00 pm
The C3AC and PTSA meetings will be on Monday, September 18th.  C3AC will start at 6 pm.  PTSA will join that meeting for a shared time at 6:30 pm when we will get an update from the Principal and staff.  In the PTSA meeting, we will be kicking off planning for this school year which means we’ll need to be making some critical decisions around goals, financials, upcoming events and more.  There is NOT a more important meeting to attend this year if you want to influence our priorities for the upcoming school year.  Participating in these meetings is also a great way to learn about what is happening in our school to make it the best learning environment for our kids.

HELP NEEDED:
We are still in search of a Secretary to take notes at our meetings.  This critical position does not require 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.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Jody Dickson, jody@dickson.org, x3568.

Please help with a BIG Fundraising Goal

For the past year, we have been trying to fundraise for a supplemental reading program that is really important for the students who are struggling with reading early in their education.  We already have the “Leveled Literacy Intervention” program for K – 2 grades.  Now we are trying to purchase the next level so the students that are still struggling with reading after 2nd grade can continue to benefit from the program.  It is a BIG ask, but we think it is really important for the students that need it.  Ms. Little has started a Donors Choose campaign: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/eagles-soaring-in-reading/2726973/  Please go online and donate as much as you can.  Then forward to friends, family and businesses that you think would help support this important effort.

Community Events

Community Volunteer Opportunity:  Please sign-up today!  CCCIA Pancake Breakfast is looking for student volunteers to serve the guests at the Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, September 23rd.  Students help by placing table settings, taking food and drink orders, serving food and drink, and bussing dirty dishes.  They will be supervised by an adult supervisor, so parents do not need to stay for the full shift.  To reserve your spot, please sign up at: http://signup.com/go/cDBFj1

Reflections Support

Do you love to be creative?  Do you want to inspire our students to make their own creative original works?  National PTA annually sponsors the Reflections program to do just that.  This year, the theme is:

Students are encouraged to create their own original work inspired by this theme, and then submit it for competition.  Categories of submission are: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, or Visual Arts.  Ms. Norris has agreed to run the after school workshop and promote the opportunity.  Working with her, you would organize collecting the submissions, and setting up the judges and evaluation, and sending our school’s winning pieces on to the next level competitions.  For more information and deadlines, please visit the Jeffco website:  http://www.jcpta.org/programs/reflections/reflections-local-chairs/323-2/  This volunteer opportunity is very short term (active in the fall) and for those energized by creativity.  Please contact Jody Dickson, jody@dickson.org, if you are interested.

Business SponsorsDo you own or work at a business that would like to advertise to our school community?  If so, consider becoming a CCCK-8 Business Sponsor.  By supporting our school, you are supporting the community that supports your business.  We have some significant fundraising goals for this year, but we have different levels of sponsorship and one of them will fit your business’ needs.  For more for information, please visit our website: http://ccck8ptsa.org/fundraising/business-sponsorship/
