Copper Creek Bobcat Blast

February 21, 2021

A Note from Ms. McNeill and Mrs. Myers

Dear Copper Creek Families,


Our Boosterthon Dance Fit was a huge success! We met our fundraising goal while having fun dancing our "paws" off. We can't begin to thank our parents and sponsors enough for their enthusiastic support of our PTSA led Boostherthon fundraiser event.


It was simply a joy to watch our students and staff leave all troubles behind and just DANCE! Our Bobcats had tons of energy and impressive dance moves. We also enjoyed watching our older Bobcats sporting off their amazing free style dance moves.


First to hit the dance floor were our sixth graders, who initially had some trepidations due to "coolness", but within minutes could not resist the beat of the music. Equally fun was watching our teachers dance. We know that Copper Creek teachers are the BEST, but who knew they can really "hit the dance floor"?


Next Thursday 02/25 and Friday 02/26 are scheduled half days for Parent Teacher Conferences. Spring conferences are optional, but are essential for students who are struggling with school. Teachers are eager to work with parents to ensure all students are successful. This is especially true given the challenges we have encountered during a pandemic school year. If you have any concerns, please don't miss this opportunity to meet virtually with your child's teacher next week.


Finally, we continue to keep our mitigation strategies strong and visible. Thank you parents for doing your part by keeping children home when they have Covid-like symptoms, have been in close contact, or have tested positive. Bobcats got to DANCE because of all of our efforts!


Stay Safe and Go Bobcats!

K. McNeill, Principal

C. Myers, Dean

Friday Early Release - PLC

Are you aware of teacher collaboration content on early release days?


On early release days teachers work in teams to make collaborative, data driven decisions to best support the needs of their students. We refer to this team effort as time spent in their Professional Learning Communities (PLC).


Teachers value student success, and they use every minute of their PLC team time to ensure continued student success at Copper Creek. Thank you parents, for your continued support.
