A Note from Ms. McNeill and Mrs. Myers

Dear Copper Creek Families,


Happy Mother's Day to all moms!


With just a couple of weeks remaining of the current school year, we would like applaud our

Bobcats for their continual hard work and for rising up to meet the many challenges of this school year.


We have one week left in the grading period and want to remind parents and students that all assignments must be completed prior to close of grades on May 14th. Please be sure to check PowerSchool for student progress and missing assignments.


This past week our PTSA celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week by honoring our teaching staff with daily treats and surprises. The teachers also received gifts and kind gestures from our Bobcat families which they truly appreciated! Thank You!


We would like to remind parents to visit the DVUSD parent communication page for the latest updates: https://www.dvusd.org/Page/66666. This includes an important upcoming update to the DVUSD Safety Plan.


Stay Safe and Go Bobcats!

K. McNeill, Principal

Tax Credit Donations

NEW TAX INFO: The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) has announced it has moved the deadline for filing and paying state individual income taxes from April 15 to May 17, 2021. The deadline was moved to match Federal (IRS) deadline for 2020 federal individual income tax returns of May 17, 2021.


ADOR also extended Arizona Public School Tax Credit donations deadline to May 17, 2021. Donations must be made by May 17, 2021 to claim the tax credits on your 2020 individual income tax return.


Impact the Lives of DVUSD Students!

Your school tax credit donations can provide DVUSD students with opportunities to participate in after school and summer programs, field trips, music and athletic programs or any other extracurricular activity.

The Arizona tax credit program (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows a tax credit of up to $200 for individuals and up to $400 for married couples, filing jointly, in support of extracurricular activities. The Arizona tax credit reduces your tax burden to the state of Arizona, dollar for dollar. Please visit https://www.dvusd.org/Domain/2806 for ways to donate to DVUSD schools.

Thank you!
