3/16/18 Friday Notes



PTSA Events:

Monthly General Membership Meeting

Monday, March 19th

6:30 – 8:00 pm

The C3AC and PTSA meetings will be on Monday, March 19th.  The 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 identify our remaining action items to achieve our goals for this year.  We will be learning about what we can do to support the new Innovation Stations at the school.  We will also gather feedback about the Health and Wellness Night event and continue planning for the silent auction & talent show in April.  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.

GOAL PROGRESS: We are still exactly on our goal for 10 people per meeting, so we need 10 or more people to come to Monday’s meeting to continue to meet that goal!  Hope to see you there!

 Upcoming PTSA Events:

3/19 – March General PTSA Membership meeting

4/20 – Silent Auction & Talent Show

SPECIAL OFFER FOR NEW AMAZON SMILE PURCHASES!!!  Through the end of March, Amazon is tripling the donation amount to 1.5% when customers make their first eligible purchase from March 12 – 31.  If you haven’t used Amazon Smile before or if you know someone who hasn’t done it yet, we encourage you to give it a try while Amazon is giving us this bonus!!

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.)  To make it easy, here is the link to tie your Smile account to CCCK-8 PTSA:

2018 – 2019 Teacher Appreciation

Our very dear Laura Graves is resigning from her position for next year as teacher appreciation coordinator.  If you are interested in showing all of our appreciation for our teachers and staff how much we appreciate everything they do by organizing four staff meals over the year and preparing occasional gifts and special treats for them, then this is the job for you.  It doesn’t take as much time as the Special Events work, but it still VERY important.

If you or someone you know might be interested in either of these positions, please contact Jody Dickson,  Feel free to contact Laura, too, in order to get more information.


Stay tuned on our website or on our Facebook page for more information on upcoming programs. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, concerns, please feel free to contact me.
