COYOTE CONNECTIONS

Weekly Updates from Mrs. Cervantes - Sept 19, 2021

Coyote Ridge Families,


Good afternoon! Fall is almost here! We are definitely looking forward to temperatures cooling off this season, but this is Texas, so there is that. :-). You have likely received your child's Texas State Fair ticket in their Friday folder. If you like to go just for the food like me, be sure to check out all the new offerings this year: New Food - State Fair of Texas


Please note that we originally had a PTA meeting scheduled for this week, but it has been cancelled. More information about an upcoming meeting will be shared soon. We're very excited for the school support we are getting from PTA and rising memberships, and I continue to encourage you to join!


In this newsletter, you'll find links and information for the CRE Book Fair, Picture Day Packages, 21-Day Challenge, HHS Band Food Drive, PTA membership and spirit wear information, and calendar updates.


Thank you for your support, and I hope you have a wonderful week!

From the Librarian: Book Fair This Week!

Hello CRE families! The Book Fair officially opens on Monday! Classrooms will come to browse and create wish lists on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. If your child has money during their classroom visit they will be allowed to shop! Otherwise they can come back on Thursday or Friday (designated shop days)! If you would like to join them please email me so I can offer you a time slot to visit.


Interested in setting up an eWallet for your child? Please visit our Book Fair website to do so: https://bit.ly/CREbookfair


Another exciting thing that I wanted to share with you is our Teacher Wishlist! Please browse the list to see how you can help our teachers grow their classroom library. These gifts are greatly appreciated!

We are also looking for some volunteers to help in the Book fair. All volunteers will receive a $5 voucher to spend at the Book Fair! We have two shifts you can choose from 8:30-11:30 and 12:30-2:30.

Coyote Ridge PTA (Parent-Teacher Association)

Parents, we invite you to join the CRE PTA! Along with spirit wear sales will be online membership and registration. I encourage ALL parents/guardians and staff to join, and we will continue to aim for 100% membership. Please remember that your membership dues go to support the school with items and programs that directly and positively impact your child's learning experience at CRE. Your membership also helps us have a collective voice in matters that impact education as a whole. Your membership in no way obligates you to any specific volunteer tasks or participation in meetings, but we'd love to have you! We proudly aim for 100% CRE staff participation, and we'd love to get as many families in as possible. Grandparents, neighbors, and community members are welcome members as well!


To join PTA and/or order CRE Spirit Wear, click on our CRE PTA website below and follow the steps. REMINDER: Membership dues go to support the school with programs directly impacting our students learning experience at CRE. Joining the PTA, in no way obligates you to specific volunteer events or participation in meeting. We would love to have you join, but there is NO obligation.
