Hippo Nation...Better Together! November 2020
A Note from your CCE Principal
Dear CCES Families--
CCE has had a blast this school year already! We have been able to successfully provide opportunities for our students to participate in school events such as our First Responders Day Parade, Dia de Los Muertos, and our PTA sponsored Trunk or Treat event! We have to say, that our CCE community always supports us in a BIG way! We appreciate all of our families that came out to support our event that evening! We apologize to our families that waited in line to participate in the event, our trunks ran out of candy that evening. Our community support and participation were BIG, thank you for supporting CCE! Everyone was in great spirits and the smiles behind all the student masks and costumes were amazing!
Thank you as well for participating in our virtual in-kind donation fundraiser, too! If you haven't yet made a donation and are interested, please look for that email from our campus this week or click on this link for more information. There is still time to support our student activity fund! All the proceeds go directly to supporting our students in many ways! If you have already donated, know that you are making a difference at our school! Thank you!
In the spirit of November, we want to say that each of our families has been of key importance in ensuring a successful start to the school year and we would like to say how THANKFUL we are that you are part of our CCE family!
Cottonwood Creek Elementary has the BEST Staff, Students, and Families! We truly are "Better Together"! Our students are "Legendary" at Cottonwood Creek Elementary!
With Hippo Nation in Mind,
Principal, Cottonwood Creek Elementary
