Fox Families,

It was so good to see everyone last week! It was even better that we were able to welcome you all into the building and into our classrooms. We are so excited about this school year! We spent last week working together and getting to know each other even better. You will hear us refer to our values this year. We spent time discussing our personal values, teams created their values and then we came together to create our school value of CONNECTIONS. You will also hear us refer to the Cherry Creek Core Values of Engagement, Equity, Whole Well-Being, Relationships and Growth Mindset. This year we will be working together to share what these mean to us.

I invite you to join in anytime you can! Over the next several weeks you will receive lots of information regarding PASS meetings, PTO meetings, SAC meetings, conferences, an all new SPECIALS night and many more activities. We hope you will CONNECT with us this year and we look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!

Ashley Gray

•Daily Arrival... No Changes from last year....

We begin our day with a soft start. Students may arrive at school starting at 7:50 AM. and all students are expected to be in their classrooms by 8:00 AM. Students ONLY can enter through their grade level door (see map above). If students are not in the building by 8:00 AM, they will need to enter through the main entrance and will be marked tardy.

•Dismissal... No Changes from last year....

Below is a video showing and explaining the dismissal routines. These are the same as last year. Please make sure you hang the car tag on your rear view mirror so we can radio for your child and they will be ready as you are driving through the car loop. Please note, if you have children in multiple grades, each child will be with their teacher until you pull through the pick up lane.

First Example:

You have a child in 4th grade, 2nd grade and Kindergarten. You enter the parking lot, a staff member sees your tag on the rear view mirror and radios to each grade level. The teacher helps your child move to the front of the group and waits for you. As you drive past the 4th grade group, your child gets in the car and you continue on around the loop. As you pass the 2nd grade, your 2nd grader gets in the car and you continue around the loop to the Kindergarten area, where your kindie gets into the car and you leave the parking lot.

Second example:

You have a 2nd grader you are picking up and you enter the parking line. The staff sees your name card and radios to 2nd grade. You will stay in the pick up lane until you have your child. Once your child gets into your car, you may then pull out of the pick up lane and go to the drive through lane on the left and proceed safely out of the parking lot.

•EVERY Wednesday... Dismiss at 1:45!

Last year we dismissed all elementary schools one hour earlier (1:45PM) every Wednesday to enhance our elementary teachers' professional development and training opportunities. We had such success with this time we will be continuing this again this school year. In addition, for families who participate in after-school childcare, the after-school program will be extended every Wednesday at no additional cost. For families who need care, you can register with our school's program. See Section "Before and After School Care" for additional information.

•Back to School night and Family Connections Meetings:

The start of the school year provides us with many opportunities to reconnect and build relationships. This year, our teachers will hold Family Connection Meetings. The purpose of these meetings are to:

  • Listen and build relationships with families

  • Learn more about our students in order to provide authentic and relevant learning experiences, celebrate each individual for their diversity, and begin to build relationships built around empathy and kindness

Families will have the option to sign up for a 15-20 minute in-person OR virtual meeting with their child's teacher. The sign up will be sent to you in an email, All Family Connection Meetings will occur prior to Friday, September 2nd.

We will not hold an in-person Back to School Night. As teachers need to get information to you they will send it to you.

•Thank you!
