Veteran's Day

Cottonwood Creek Elementary School looks forward to continuing our great tradition of honoring our Veterans. It is a time for us to remember their sacrifice and service.


Are you a Veteran? Do you know a Veteran?

If so, we’d like to invite our Veterans to tour our “Hall of Heroes” and to spend time connecting with students in our classrooms on Monday, November 8th.


8:30 - 9:00 am: Kindergarten and 1st Grade Classroom Visits and Tour

9:15 - 9:45 am: 2nd and 3rd Grade Classroom Visits and Tour

10:00 - 10:30 am: 4th and 5th Grade Classroom Visits and Tour


During this time, students will have an opportunity to introduce their Veteran and the Veteran can share a little about themselves with the class - their branch of service, what they did in the service, etc. After the Veteran(s) have shared, they may go tour our “Hall of Heroes”.


Please RSVP using this form. RSVP's are due Wednesday, November 3rd.

Dear Cottonwood Families,


I hope this email finds you well as we wrap up our first week back from break. It is with mixed emotions that I announce I am taking on a new opportunity outside of Cherry Creek School District. My final day with CCSD will be Friday, November 5th. While I am excited for this new opportunity to advance my career and pursue personal growth, it saddens me to leave this amazing community. I am so thankful to have worked within CCSD, with our incredible students, their families, and alongside wonderful teammates and colleagues. I have grown and learned so much while being a part of this community and am grateful for my time here.


If you have any questions or would like to touch base about your child, please email me and I am more than happy to find a time to meet.


Again, I am thankful for the opportunity I've had to work in Cherry Creek School District, and it is with a heavy and hopeful heart that I take on my next chapter.


Best,



Molly Riley, Ed.S.

Child, Family, and School Psychologist
