Weekly Updates from Mrs. Cervantes - Nov. 14, 2021

Coyote Ridge Families,

We had such a great day to honor our CRE Veterans this past week! It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony in which our students all were able to sing and play tribute to our distinguished veterans and their guests. Special recognition goes out to our Music teacher, Cami Guerrero, her husband Chris Guerrero, the Enrichment Team, and other CRE staff who made this event possible. We also want to thank the CRE PTA for hosting coffee and breakfast treats for our veterans. Mrs. Guerrero also prepared a video with the photo submissions, and you can view that here: CRE Veterans - We Thank You!

In this newsletter, you'll find information on Gen TX Week, school cafeteria meals, PTA membership and spirit wear information, and calendar updates.

Thank you for your support, and I hope you have a wonderful week.

--Padgett Cervantes, Principal

Next week, November 15-19th is Gen TX Week: A week of recognizing students’ future plans after high school. While high school and beyond seem so far away, preparing a mindset for success and accomplishment is an everyday leadership trait. Our elementary school students are being prepared to be leaders of themselves and think about their end in mind goals of what they will make of their futures.

The following website has valuable information not only about the possibilities of college being for everyone, but endless options for post-secondary education and training.

Please take a look at the resources and share the options with your students.

Throughout the week of November 15th-19th, Coyote Ridge students will be participating in classroom activities that promote thinking and understanding of the futures they, as leaders of themselves, have the opportunity to create.

Be on the lookout for pictures of the week’s activities.

School Meals

School meals will be free for all students this year, but we encourage qualifying families to sign up for the Free & Reduced program to receive numerous other benefits! It's meals and so much more:

Coyote Ridge PTA (Parent-Teacher Association)

Parents, we invite you to join the CRE PTA! Along with spirit wear sales will be online membership and registration. I encourage ALL parents/guardians and staff to join, and we will continue to aim for 100% membership. Please remember that your membership dues go to support the school with items and programs that directly and positively impact your child's learning experience at CRE. Your membership also helps us have a collective voice in matters that impact education as a whole. Your membership in no way obligates you to any specific volunteer tasks or participation in meetings, but we'd love to have you! We proudly aim for 100% CRE staff participation, and we'd love to get as many families in as possible. Grandparents, neighbors, and community members are welcome members as well!

To join PTA and/or order CRE Spirit Wear, click on our CRE PTA website below and follow the steps. REMINDER: Membership dues go to support the school with programs directly impacting our students learning experience at CRE. Joining the PTA, in no way obligates you to specific volunteer events or participation in meeting. We would love to have you join, but there is NO obligation.
