March BOD Meeting
Please note that the March BOD meeting has been changed to Tuesday, March 3rd, and will be held at 7:30pm in the Library Conference Room at the Parker campus. Thanks!
USBORNE Book Fair at BOTH CP & PKR!
CP&PKR - Both AA libraries will be having an Usborne Spring Book Fair to promote reading through spring break and into summer! The libraries have many Usborne books and they are continually checked out, so this is a way for us to add to our library as well as promote the love of reading with our students.

The Castle Pines book fair is March 9 - 13, 7:30 am until 4:30 pm, M-Th. On Friday, the book fair opens at 7:30 am, but closes early for packing up at 2:00 pm. If you would like to volunteer to help with the CP book fair, please click here.

The Parker book fair is March 16 - 20, 7:30 am - 4:30 pm, M-W. On Thursday, the book fair will stay open during Middle School parent teacher conferences until 6:00 pm. Friday hours are 7:30 am - 2:00 pm. If you would like to volunteer to help with the PKR book fair, please click here.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the Book Fairs!

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.
