Boodle Boxes...A big THANK YOU!

Cottonwood Creek Elementary staff & students,

I am Sergeant First Class Venegas and I just received several care packages from Cottonwood Creek Elementary. On behalf of the Troopers that will be enjoying these amazing packages, I just wanted to take a moment and say THANK YOU!!! Your care packages are by far the best I have ever seen. Several of my Troopers are spending this holiday season away from their family for the first time in their life. Your support makes all the difference in the world and has a huge impact that brightens our spirits. Thank you again.

I have attached a picture of some of the Troopers that will be enjoying these packages.

Happy New Year, Cottonwood families. Thank you for the holiday gift card. I so appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity, and am thrilled to be part of this learning community.

I am looking forward to innovation and learning happening in the library in this new year. In January, students will be working on creating videos in our green screen room, classes will be building their problem-solving and teamwork skills by using our district’s breakout boxes, and research at many grade levels is going to commence. I cannot wait to get started!

From the Music Room

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. The Fifth Grade informance and Winter Choir and Band Concert were wonderfully successful as students showed of their musical skills. Having two very different formats, these presentations shared student work in very different ways. We hope all who attended both enjoyed themselves and learned something! Coming up next is the Fourth Grade informance on Thursday, February 7. Fourth Grade parents, keep an eye out for an email from me detailing the call time and dress. Also coming up is the after school choir for Second and Third graders. There will be a Tuesday group and a Thursday group that will rehearse separately most of the year, and then combine for the last couple rehearsals before the concert on May 2. Second and Third Grade parents, keep an eye out for a registration email toward the end of this month.

Mr. Pedregon
