PTO-CP Skate City Event in January
CP - Join the PTO-CP at our annual Skate City event on Thursday, January 15, 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm at Skate City in Littleton! There is no school the next day (January 16 is K-5 morning conferences), so come skate with your friends. New this year, you can pre-pay and register online through the American Academy School Store! Admission is just $9.32 and includes round-trip bus transportation, any skate rental, beef hot dog, chips and soda. Click here to volunteer with this event.
PLEASE NOTE: Transportation via the Skate City buses is round-trip ONLY. If you would prefer to drive your child in either direction, you must plan to drive them BOTH WAYS and instead of registering on the School Store, bring payment with you to Skate City and pay when you arrive.
Hearing and Vision Screenings Coming Soon
CP&PKR - It's time for DCSD vision and hearing screenings for our Kindies, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders! This is an annual mass screening to detect "academically significant vision and hearing problems." For more details on the screening, or if you would like to opt your student out of this year's annual DCSD hearing and vision screening, please email DCSD Health Services.

And while the district audiologists run the show, they need parent help to get all the students through this process! Click here to read the request for volunteers from DCSD If you'd like to volunteer, please click on the link are below for your campus.
