Teacher's and Staff's Favorite Things

Ever wanted to get that perfect little something of appreciation for your teacher or that special staff member and have no idea what they like? Years ago, staff and parents started a Favorites Thing list that has been distributed amongst the community so that families have a little help with ideas on what to get their teachers/staff members for special occasions. Provided below you will find a list of those Favorite Things forms filled out by our staff. You are by no means obligated to buy anything on these lists for our staff members, but if you are looking for ideas for things you already have planned - these lists may help! Thank you for always being so loving and supportive of our Teachers and Staff - we have such a wonderful community here at CCA!

Attention 8th Graders - Colorado Early College

Hello 8th grade Families!

My name is Mary Bain, I am the marketing coordinator for Colorado Early Colleges in Castle Rock, Inverness, and Parker! We have several students from Cherry Creek Academy that are thriving at Colorado Early Colleges (CEC). CEC is a network of public, charter schools where students earn a 2-year college degree or industry certificate for free in high school. At CEC, we offer accessible, flexible, and individualized education. Students are placed into classes based on their Accuplacer assessment scores, academic abilities, and career interests, not based on their grade-level.

I would love to be a resource for you all as you start to think about the right high school fit. I encourage you all to attend one of the information opportunities linked below. These opportunities are a great chance to get to meet with our leadership team, learn about our award-winning school model, and understand our school culture.

I hope to meet you all soon. I am happy to answer any questions you have about Colorado Early Colleges or high school fit, so please don’t hesitate to send me an email. Thanks!
