scissors box top
Make sure to save those box tops for the fall collection date. Box tops are due on
Friday, October 11th.

The class with the most box tops will win an Eegee's Party
Are you wondering which products offer box tops?  
We'll take them any way that you can send them in, but if you, or your children, have time to trim around the box tops, that saves our box top crew some time. If you have any questions, please email the PTO at coppercreekpto@gmail.com.

Copper Creek is an AMAZING COMMUNITY SCHOOL with lots of wonderful volunteers that make it such a special place! We need your help to continue doing all the fabulous things we do! You don't need to commit to hours a week...just an hour or two a year!

Good Evening Families,
It was great to see so many faces at the Movie Night!  I am grateful for such a supportive community and it is wonderful to see our families have a chance to connect.
We have Hawk Walk on Friday!  Our goal is to have 100% participation, even if it's a $1.  The funds we raise in Hawk Walk allow us to do innovative, forward-thinking things with our students.
CREATE Time was a huge success Monday.  Hopefully your students are looking forward to Monday morning and getting to school on time.  Teachers are really excited about what they have planned for tomorrow.
Have a great week!
