Winter Break

I want to wish all families a safe and happy winter break! Whether you are staying close to home, or traveling, please encourage your child to use the technology sites such as Read Theory, Ten Marks and Cue Think over break. This will help to keep their skills up, provide needed practice and continue their practice in skills that need to be improved. Students should also read thirty minutes every day over break. We resume school January 4th. I wish you and your families a wonderful New Year!


I will be traveling over the winter break to Tennessee to visit my sister. I can be reached via email if you have questions regarding technology passwords.

IB Theme

We are wrapping up How We Organize Ourselves. We will spend a little time in third quarter with the end of our unit and completing the summative assessment.


Students will begin their discovery in How the World Works, taking a closer look at inventions, and the Industrial Revolution.


Central Idea: New technologies and inventions impact the worlds of work, leaisure and the environment.


Lines of Inquiry:


  • Technologies and interventions past and present of the home, workplace and leisure activities
  • Circumstances that lead to the development of important inventions and their impact
  • How technology supports/impacts sustainability



The familiar Curiosity Project will have an invention focus for third quarter.

Tax Credit

It isn't too late for you, a family member, or any Arizona resident to give the gift of an Arizona Tax Credit. Tax Credit forms can be printed from the link below and delivered to the Cotton Oak Creek School District.

Technology in the Classroom and at Home

Please use these convenient links to support your student's learning over winter break. Two weeks is a long time to just play Minecraft. ;)
