CCE Virtual Art Show

Dear Coyote Creek Parents & Families,

I have two very big pieces of information to share with you! I’m excited to announce the Coyote Creek participants to represent our school in the 2020-2021 Douglas County School District Virtual Art Show. The student names are listed below. Starting Monday, May 3rd the Virtual Art Show is open to the public @ You can also find it by scanning the QR code on the attached image. From the bottom of my heart, I truly believe every student is a magnificent artist! I can’t wait to have the opportunity to (fingers crossed) do an in-house art night in the school next year to celebrate all of our students!

Please click HERE for the Art Show QR Code to view the show.

Next, I wanted to share with you that the "Original Works" art fundraiser deadline has been extended until May 15th. Please keep in mind that this is the major way we fundraise for art materials for our students. Any purchase you can make will have a big impact in our classroom for next year.

As always, thank you for supporting the arts!
