Friday Notes for 4/19/19

PTSA Corner

4/19/19 Friday Notes

Un-Plug Me / Screen Free Week starts Sunday, April 21st. We have after school activities EVERY DAY to inspire your kids to do something that doesn’t involve a screened-device. Research has proven that time without devices gives our brains a break and helps us connect in a more meaningful way to ourselves, each other, and the amazing world that we live in! Look for the flyer in your Friday Folder (or find it on our website: to make the commitment to give it a try this week and explore any or all of the activities we are offering next week, including:

Monday – Kickball & start of the Reading Challenge
Tuesday – 4Square / Open Gym
Wednesday – Board Game Day
Thursday – Legos & Healthy “Try-It” foods after school
Friday – Lego project judging (during school), After-School Coffee Shop games

Shop to Support our School!!

UPDATE: As of April 1st the King Soopers program has changed how it works. Reloading gift cards will no longer be necessary, and you will be able to support us through use of your loyalty card. We will send instructions in a future Friday Notes.

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.)
