Meet Ms. Carolyn Coyle!
CCA's New 2nd Grade Teacher
Hi! My name is Ms. Carolyn Coyle and I’m so excited to work with each one of you this year as your child’s teacher! I have been an Elementary school teacher for the past twelve years. I have experience teaching Kindergarten through Third Grades. I strive to develop plans for students at all learning levels in an inclusive setting. I work hard to improve students’ academically through innovative lessons and activities; placing a priority in creating a safe, cooperative, cohesive “team approach” classroom environment. I recently moved to Colorado from Marblehead, Massachusetts. I love backpacking, hiking, skiing, lacrosse and pretty much anything outdoors; naturally loving Colorado so far! I look forward to meeting you and working together with your wonderful children.  
Book Fair Success!
The book fair brought in $5,456  to be used for classroom and library resources. Students and teachers have already benefited with about $1500 of this amount going to improve classroom Accelerated Reader collections. It has truly been a team effort with a crew of wonderful volunteers donating their time, and parents that are willing to support our school and their children's learning.  A special thanks goes out to Elizabeth Wyatt  who coordinated volunteer scheduling and jumped in whenever she was needed.

Kudos CCA!
Amy Larson, Librarian

Lunchroom News
Looking for a healthy meal choice?  Look no further than our 3 leaf icon across your school lunch menus!

The Wholesome and Healthy  icon denotes  complete meal choices  that meet a set of dietitian approved criteria. The Wholesome and Healthy meal choice must consist of a lean protein, grain (whole grain when possible), and a fruit or vegetable and meet the following criteria:
1) 30% or less calories from fat
2) 10% or less total calories from saturated fat
3) At least 3 grams of fiber

King Soopers Cards
Visualize this...if 150 CCA families commit to spending $250 with a King Soopers shopping card each month, our school will earn $22,500 in one year!  You can help CCA fund raise as you shop for food for your family! If you have any questions, please  contact Rebecca Rook .

Earning money for the school is simple:
1. Reload your card at the cashier before check out.
2. Pay for your groceries with the card.
3. Reload again next time you shop.
4. King Soopers will pay CCA PTO 5% of every dollar spent every 4 weeks, if we collectively reload $5,000  in a 4 week period.

TR AFFIC/SAFETY:
JHL has planned ahead to minimize the impact to normal school operations, including traffic. Morning drop off and afternoon pick up will not change. JHL has scheduled all deliveries and truck/equipment traffic outside of our drop off and pick up times.

JHL created a safety video for our website, highlighting the efforts JHL takes to separate students from the construction as well as their thorough background checks for their employees, and other important efforts being taken to ensure a safe construction site. 

JHL, DCS, RTA architects, and CCA leadership meet and discuss new construction tasks that involve safety matters at weekly Owner, Architect, Constructor meetings to ensure the safest site possible.

TOURS:
We are working with JHL Constructors and DCS, CCA's Owner's Rep, to schedule monthly tours for anyone interested in walking the project to hear and see first hand the progress being made. These tours will be held immediately following our regularly scheduled monthly PTO meetings. A PTO tour was held on Friday, 9/15. The next tour date will be 10/20 immediately following the PTO meeting. Remember to wear close-toed shoes to participate!

STAY IN TOUCH:

Carpool Corner
Carpool needed for 8th grader. We live on Smoky Hill and Tower. I am a nurse and my schedule is not consistent so I need someone that can be flexible. I would also be interested in joining an existing carpool to split driving 3 ways (I have room for 4-5 kids) or even paying for transportation on my work days. Please let me know if you can help, I start a new job on 10/30. Thank you! Jessica Adams  720-936-4947
