Copper Creek Bobcat Blast

Dear Copper Creek Families,


On Friday, Copper Creek honored Patriot Day, and we want to give a great big thank you to Mr. Ambrose and all of the choir for their performance during our celebration. As Mrs. Myers stated, "this year we have the biggest choir we've had in years".


We would also like to thank Master Sergeant J.M. Badey from Sandra Day O'Connor High School and his program, U.S. Air Force JROTC color guard. They proudly presented to our students, teachers, and families.


For the classrooms, teachers created activities and outstanding art projects for their students. We explained to students that Congress designated September 11 of each year as Patriot Day. This day is a national day of remembrance of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, and in honor of the families left behind.


Copper Creek will also celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. Students will learn about the signing of the U.S. Constitution. Teachers are planning fun and engaging activities.


Lastly, teachers will begin sending out information by email to parents regarding parent/teacher conferences.

NOTE FROM THE COUNSELOR

Make Time For Your Children


With so many demands on your time, it's often difficult for parents and children to get together for a family meal, let alone spend some quality time together. But there is probably nothing your child would like more. Get up ten minutes earlier in the morning so you can eat breakfast with your child, or leave the dishes in the sink and take a walk after dinner. Children who are not getting the attentions they want from their parents often act out or misbehave because they are assured of getting noticed.



Many parents find it mutually rewarding to have prescheduled time with their child on a regular basis. For instance, tell your child that Tuesday is his special night with Mom, and let him help decide how you will spend your time together. Look for other ways to connect with your child - put a note or something in his lunchbox.


Adolescents seem to need less undivided attention from their parents than younger children. Since there are fewer windows of opportunity for parents and teens to get together, parents should do their best to be available when their teen does express a desire to talk or participate in family activities. Attending concerts, games, and other events with them communicates caring and lets you get to know about them and their friends in important ways.


Don't feel guilty if you're a working parent. Quantity is not nearly as important as what you do with the bits and pieces of time you have with your child. It is the many little things you do together - making popcorn, playing cards, window shopping - that your child will remember.


I am attaching an activity that you might enjoy sharing with your child: The You and Me Suitcase, Our One on One Adventure.

NEWS FROM THE P.E. CORNER

We want your child to have the opportunity to try many new things in P.E. using the right "tools"! In order for this to occur, we need all students to dress appropriately on their P.E. day/s:


  • Athletic shoes that provide the proper support and cushion necessary for students to perform at their highest level. Shoes need to fully cover the heel and toes to help prevent or minimize injuries. We stress to the students that shoes need to be tied tightly and securely around their feet. Please NO: flip flops, sandals, boots, dress shoes, crocs or “Heelys”.
  • In addition, students need to come to class in clothing that is comfortable and unrestrictive. If students are not dressed properly for class, students will not be able to participate on that day and will not earn their full daily points toward their overall grade.
  • Please check with your child’s teacher and/or school planner to see when your child has P.E. during the week.
