  • Later in the day on the Friday they are sent
  • Sometime over the weekend
  • Monday morning before school
  • Sometime over the following week
  • I don’t always get to them
  • Never

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,, 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,, x3568.

Summer Soccer Camp
The Brazilians and the British are coming back this year!

Coming back for a second year, from June 12-16 will be hosting the Tetra Brazil Soccer Academy for our 10-16 year old soccer players.  This program focuses on technical development, and is led by Brazilian coaches that bring an authentic taste of the flair, passion and creativity of Brazilian soccer.

Our fifth summer of British Soccer Camp will be hosted by the Coal Creek Canyon Park & Recreation District (CCCP&RD) at the Coal Creek Canyon K-8 Turf Field from July 10-14.  This week of soccer fun is led by British soccer coaches, and programs are available for kids from ages 3 -16.

Kids can sign up for one or both weeks of camp. Register now to get the free jersey at


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!!
