Updates and Information

Good Afternoon,

This past week has been so much fun celebrating Read Across America and Dr. Seuss! Students have been reading, reading and reading. They have also shared their book recommendations, dressed up as a "future career" and their favorite book character. We will continue celebrating Reading this week with Muffins for Moms and Donuts for Dads. (As an FYI, we are buying all individually wrapped muffins/donut but we were informed this past week that the company does not have any more donuts...so it may be muffins for both events. We are still trying!) I look forward to seeing you this week!

Finally, thank you for coming out and supporting the Book Fair. A HUGE thank you to the Kiwanis Kids (K Kids) who have stayed after school to set up and take down the Book Fair, the volunteers who have worked this week and Mrs. Bridget Cook, for her organization and time! We look forward to the next one!

As always, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or administration with questions or concerns. Administrators are available to meet with parents upon requests. Feel free to call or come to the school if you have any concerns regarding your child’s education. You may also contact administrators via email:

Regina Roberts(Principal): rcroberts@ccps.org

Kim Whitney (Assistant Principal): krwhitney@ccps.org
