Welcome Back!!!

Welcome Back Wildcat Community!


I hope you have had an amazing summer full of camping trips, swimming, BBQs, family, and friends. Every August I start to get so excited; excited to see what a new year can bring, and more than anything, I am excited to see our students back in the building. Thursday morning you should be able to log into Power School and see who your student's teacher is. I know their teacher is excited to meet them at our back-to-school night on August 23rd from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. For the purpose of balancing classes, all class rosters are final. Parent requests are available every year in April.


A very important announcement this year: School breakfast and school lunch will no longer be free. These free breakfast/lunch programs have unfortunately come to an end. Some great news however, is that no student has a negative balance and everyone will have a fresh start. If you did have money in your school account, it should still be there. You can access school lunch accounts, see the updated pricing and make deposits here. You can still receive free/reduced lunch if your family qualifies. The district will be sending out more information. One of our nutrition specialists will be available at our back-to-school night as well to answer any questions.


This year I have a personal challenge for you, the families. I challenge you to be here in our building and become a part of this amazing community that we have built! You can volunteer and teach small groups, make copies, join your student for lunch, or even just come read with kids one day a week. Trust me when I say you will never regret spending more of these years helping out and being involved in our amazing school. Please just make sure you have filled the volunteer application before coming in.


With that being said, why not also join PTA this year? This group only has five members right now, and they have been really making a positive impact here at CP. Send an email to cpwildcatspta@gmail.com and see how you can get involved.


This is OUR year! I can’t wait to get out front to greet all of our students as they return to school!


Sincerely,


Alex Jensen

Principal

Walk to School Fridays Continues!!! Starting Friday, September 2nd!!

Last year we started the new tradition of walking to school on Fridays and I am so excited to continue this through October 28th. Mr. Jensen will meet any students and families that want to join at the corner of Deer Flat and Ten Mile at 8:10 every Friday. The walking group will leave at 8:15. This was such an amazing community builder last year that I hope you can join us every week. We averaged between 90-120 participants weekly! Our first walk to school Friday will be Friday, September 2nd.

Crimson Point Pick-up and Drop- Off's

We ask that if you are looking for an extended goodbye between you and your student to park and have your goodbye in the parking lot. The drop off lane is for quick in and out drop offs or pick ups. Please pull as far forward as possible to ensure we can fit as many cars into the drop off space as possible. Do not drop off or pick up right in front of the main doors if there is space in front of you to pull forward. (The photo below was created by 5th graders last year to help support this ongoing issue.)


Supervision will not be outside until 8:30 a.m. Please do not drop off before 8:30 a.m.
