Back to school!
We sure had a great week last week! It's going to be a great year!
Please follow this information shared with us from the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office:
'NO PARKING' SIGNS IN THE AREA: Parking is defined by stopping, standing, even if the vehicle is occupied - if you see a 'No Parking' sign DO NOT PARK THERE.
NO U-TURN: No U-Turn anywhere on Caley in the school zone.
- Going Eastbound on Caley there's no left turn onto Elmira Circle West.
- Eastbound on Caley no right turn onto South Florence Way.
- Vehicles should NOT block driveways or fire hydrants at anytime even if you are in line. Make sure you leave a space between the car in front of you to keep the driveway/fire hydrant clear.
- Vehicles will be cited and towed at owners expense.
- It is a school zone so during morning and afternoon drop off/pickup the speed limit is only 20mph.
Attention all CCA Middle School students: Peer Helpers will begin meeting on Friday August 26, 2022 at 7:15am in Mrs. MacFarland's room.

Peer Helpers are a group of Middle School students who are trained in leadership skills in order to help their fellow CCA community. Please email Ms. Yamauchi email@example.com with any questions. We hope to see you there!

Welcome back to School CCA Families!
Our 2022 Carnival is a fantastic opportunity to welcome back students and parents with games, bouncy castles and pizza. This year the Carnival will be held on August 26th at the Cherry Creek Academy school grounds and we will be following up with additional information regarding the specifics of the event soon. We will also be raising money for the school with our first Silent Auction during the Carnival. We have already received some fantastic donations, including lift tickets, lunch at the Melting Pot and a meeting with a college prep consultant to name a few. On top of these generous donations, our amazing CCA staff will be offering a chance to bid on lunches with students, becoming a librarian for an afternoon, or VIP parking passes for special events at the school! We are still hoping to receive more donations from the CCA community to make this event as successful as possible!
Our goal is to raise $20,000 and we need YOUR help to make it happen!
Please consider donating to our silent auction! We are looking for items we can auction such as gift baskets, gift certificates, services and lessons!
Donation Deadline is August 19, 2022
Donations will count as volunteer hours which will depend on item value.
