Coyote Ridge Families,
Happy Diwali! For those that celebrate, may the festival of lights brighten up your life and bring prosperity and happiness to you and your loved ones!
Our Veterans Day Assembly was just fabulous! It was a genuine pleasure to host the Veterans connected to our CRE Community and participate in the festivities. Our students did a wonderful job presenting and singing patriotic songs to honor our guests. Huge appreciation to Mr. Clay Davis, our Music Maestro Extraordinaire, who coordinated and led all of the program, and to the Specials Team and other CRE staff who helped with the assembly. Thank you also to CRE PTA for providing the Veterans and their guests with a delicious breakfast!
Thank you for voting over the past few weeks! Preliminary election results show that Lewisville ISD voters approved a majority of the district's nearly $1.23 billion bond referendum. The Voter-Approval Tax Rate Election (VATRE), Proposition A, was also approved and will add an additional $37.5 million annually to the operating budget to help sustain competitive staff pay and maintain student instructional opportunities and programs of choice. The passing of Bond Propositions B and C represent $1,030,177,000 of the total proposed bond package of $1,229,620,000.
For more details about the results, please go to the district link here: Bond Election Results
Thanksgiving Break is headed our way! Please remember that Friday, Nov 17th is a regular school day with regular hours (we often get calls asking if it's an early dismissal day). I hope you have some amazing plans with your loved ones with delicious food while counting your bountiful blessings! But before you get ready for a vacation from school, please join us this Wednesday from 5:30-7:00 for a fun Literacy Night!
In this newsletter, you'll also find information and reminders about CRE Literacy Night, the National PTA School of Excellence parent feedback survey, CRE Art Program fundraiser (great gifts for grandparents!), PTA community event at Sci-Tech Discovery Center, BOOSTER FUN RUN information, Creek Valley MS STEM Fest, and sponsored events through Hebron High School organizations. As always, this newsletter also includes links to Recognize SomeONE submissions, Child Nutrition information, CRE PTA Information, and calendar updates.
Thanks for all you do!

CRE Events Team
Nation PTA School of Excellence - Feedback Request
Dear Families, Administrators and Teachers:
The Coyote Ridge Elementary PTA knows that a strong partnership among our families, school leaders and community members is important to the success of our students and school. That’s why we are participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which grows partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students.
At a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. We feel Coyote Ridge Elementary and CRE PTA can achieve that together—and the result will be national, state and community-wide visibility for the positive impact we are making together at Coyote Ridge.
We need your help! As part of the process, National PTA requests feedback from families, administrators and teachers at two points in the school year—the beginning and the end. Your feedback will help us improve our family-school partnership and achieve excellence.
Please take 5-10 minutes to reflect on your experience at this school and complete the attached survey. Mark an “X” in the box that most accurately expresses how you feel about your experience. This survey is completely anonymous. Please use the link below to complete this survey by Wednesday, November 15th.
Does this sound like a PTA program you’d really like to help with? Join us! Contact Karah Edwards @ email@example.com or 214.395.2628 to learn more!
