Spring Soiree Volunteers Needed
PKR - Spring is just around the corner and so is the 2nd annual PTO-PKR Spring Soiree! Currently we have just a handful of volunteers working very hard to create a successful night for all the parents and staff of American Academy. But we need more volunteers to join us to ensure every detail is covered!

Come help make this a successful night and get some volunteer hours!! Join us at one of two upcoming volunteer meetings at the Stonegate Community Center to find out more!
  • Friday, January 30, 8:30 am
  • Monday, February 2, 6:30 pm
The Stonegate Community Center is located at 10326 Stonegate Parkway in Parker. See you there!

February is Sweetheart Dance Month
CP&PKR - The PTOs at both CP and PKR are busy preparing very special evenings for our young ladies and the men in their lives: the 2015 Sweetheart Dance!

Castle Pines Sweetheart Dance - February 7
Parker Sweetheart Dance - February 21


This year's theme is "Sugar and Spice" and the PTOs promise the dances are truly going to be everything nice! The event will include carriage rides at both campuses but you'll need to hurry to save a spot on a carriage - the reservations are limited and they go FAST. Details and sign-up links for the event can be found on the PTO-CP and the PTO-PKR pages.

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.
