Family Movie Night Reminder
Week 6 CRE Movie
Good Morning Chinooks!


My apologies for a late edition of the newsletter. Hopefully you are already enjoying what looks to be a sunny weekend.


This week we saw an increase of people wearing facemasks on campus at pick up! Thank you for that. I do not know one person who loves their facemask, but you wearing them on campus sets a great example for our students and shows support for our teachers and staff that also don't enjoy having to remind kids to wear them. We're all in this together. The more we can spread that message, the better.


The food pantry and clothing closet had its first open week at CRE! From 2-4 on Wednesdays families are invited to come by and take home a bag of food and clothing that might be needed for the whole family. Please drop by and see all the hard work being poured into supporting our local families.


Picture day is this Friday, October 22nd. A picture envelope was sent home earlier this week and a link can be found below for digital ordering. Students will be spaced away from both photographer and other students while taking the picture so masks can be removed. We are looking forward to seeing some big smiles from our students!


Starting Monday, Q school (Quarantine school) will be fully up and running. Your child will have an invitation on their Canvas from Mrs. Williams (Kindergarten-2nd) or Mrs. Jarvis (3rd-5th). Please accept this invitation to give your student access to the canvas page at any time. If they are asked to quarantine or isolate, their assigned teacher will contact you with further information on how to contact them and when live zoom will be taking place.


This week our specials schedule changes as we reopen the library! Rather than working around a 6 day calendar, students will go back to having a consistent schedule with library in the rotation. This also means your student will consistently have music and PE twice every week. We are working to make sure running club remains an option for our students during scheduled recess times as we know we have some runners who are very invested in counting up the miles.


Music has been very busy this week producing a rap video and getting ready for movie night on Friday, October 29th! Both have been a topic of conversation for your students. Please see the flyer below for more information about movie night, and if you have not, click on this link to either give permission, or decline, your student being seen in the music video.


If you still have money for the Jog-A-Thon, please return that to school ASAP. So far this event has brought in over $10,000!!! A huge thank you goes out to the community for supporting our schools and to our amazing PE teacher, Jack Carroll and his student teacher, Kenny Helmes who dedicated their time to making the event a success. Several staff members also changed their day and committed time to make sure this event felt special for our students.


The parent survey is wrapping up the weekend! We have been reading through your responses and will be designing our plans for future improvements around your feedback. Please see the information below and give us your perspective. Every voice is so important!


We hope you continue to enjoy your weekend and we'll look forward to seeing each of you again on Monday!

Social Media Challenges

Estacada School District Families,


As reported in the media, there is a new TikTok challenge going around called the “devious lick” challenge. It involves stealing or vandalizing school property and posting videos about it. We have also seen several other challenges over recent days that encourage students to say unkind and hurtful things to other classmates.


Please talk to your child/children about this challenge and about social media in general. While something like this may seem like an innocent prank on the surface, their words and actions have a very real impact on our schools. Students taking place in challenges that hurt or embarrass other students are unacceptable, and will be taken seriously by our administration. Additional challenges that involve theft and vandalism can cost our schools thousands of dollars to repair or replace items, and are a criminal offense. If you or your child need support or resources related to social media challenges, please contact your child’s school counselor.


We also ask that you monitor your child’s TikTok and social media accounts. Here are some resources to get you started as you have important conversations with your students: ​​https://www.commonsense.org/education/family-resources. Additionally, please report any concerns to your child’s school. Strong partnerships between schools and families allow us to proactively address concerns.


Thank you for your support and understanding regarding the impact this trend has had on our schools and community. We appreciate your partnership in working to keep dangerous and destructive social media trends out of our schools.
