Cottonwood Creek Cougar Chronicle
February 26, 2021
From your Principal, Katie Johnson
I would like to invite each to you to our next Cottonwood Creek Advisory Committee (CCAC) meeting on Thursday, March 11th 11:00-12:00. This committee is intended to provide an opportunity for communication and transparency between administration and our community. During this particular meeting, you will hear about our 2021-22 staffing plan, and you will have the opportunity to talk to other community members and provide feedback as we begin to prepare for next school year. Attendance is open to all and we welcome your participation and support. Hope to "see" you there!
Meeting ID: 349 386 8030
The Colorado Measure of Academic Success (CMAS) testing window opens for Elementary on March 29, 2021. To prepare to administer this test we must collect the computers that were given out for remote learning. We are asking that you return the computer, charging cord, and any other accessories your child received to our front office by Friday, March 12, 2021. (Please make sure the device is clearly marked with your child's first and last name.) This will provide us with the time we need to clean and prepare computers for students to use for state testing.
As always, if you want to proactively excuse your student from state testing this year, you must fill out the opt-out form located on the State Assessment Exemption tile at my.cherrycreek.org. You can view instructions for filling out the exemption here.
Regardless of your decision to opt-out, we still need to collect the computer your child was assigned to accommodate the testing schedule.
Progress reports will come home with your child today. Please return the envelope to school on Monday, March 1st.
Next week is conference week. Conferences are a great opportunity to meet with your child's teacher to learn more about your child's performance, both academically and social-emotionally. Collaboration between school and home is key to a successful school year. Please CLICK HERE to access K-5 Parent/Teacher Conference Sign Up Links. Remember, no in person conferences at this time.
