CP Elementary Art Show - April 9
CP - Looking for an evening of culture to share with your children? Please join us for the Elementary Art Show on April 9, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm! We’ll be displaying at least one work of art from every Elementary student at CP and your students are SO excited for you to see what they’ve been working on all year!

We are still looking for art supply donations (prizes for the art show!) and volunteers to help with the Elementary Art Show reception. Please contact Ms. Allmendinger with questions about volunteering and art supplies.

Save the Date for Volunteer Appreciation
CP&PKR - We sure do love our volunteers! And we want to thank you for donating all that time and energy to the school and our students – we couldn’t do it all without you. Please save the date and plan to join us for a very special Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast at each campus, right after carpool. We’ll send out more information and an invitation soon!

State of American Academy Presentations
CP&PKR - Thank you, AA parents, for taking the time to let us know you are interested in hearing from our Executive Director of Schools, Erin Kane, on the current "State of American Academy.”

According to survey feedback, evenings work best for you, so please join us on either Wednesday, April 15, in Parker, or Tuesday, April 21, in Castle Pines, to hear the latest on AA's academic and financial status/priorities as well as state testing and planning for the future. Feel free to attend the session that works best for your schedule, regardless of the campus you attend. See you there!

Wednesday, April 15 – 6:00 – 7:00 pm, Parker cafeteria
Tuesday, April 21 – 6:00 – 7:00 pm, Castle Pines cafeteria

TDAP Immunizations REQUIRED for 15-16 Grade 6
CP&PKR - Important! Because of the current, state-wide pertussis epidemic, all incoming 2015-2016 6th graders MUST receive the Tdap immunization prior to beginning the next school year!

Even if your child has been previously immunized, he or she MUST be revaccinated before the start of the 2015-2016 school year to ensure immunity and public safety. Please read the attached letter from our district nurse, Paulette Joswick, and contact Ms. Joswick if you have any questions about this requirement.

Yearbooks for Sale!
CP&PKR - They won’t deliver until the end of the school year, but you can purchase yearbooks for 2014-2015 right now! Just visit LifeTouch to choose from hard cover or soft cover, or even to personalize your student’s yearbook. Be sure to print out a receipt of your order for your records. All yearbook orders must be placed by April 10, 2015. Don't forget to use the right campus ID code when you purchase!
