THE BLAZE NEWSLETTER
Week of August 27, 2018
Hey Copper Ridge Family!

Another week into the school year, and we need to take a moment to be grateful. We are so fortunate to live in an area and attend a school with abundant resources, dedicated staff- not just our teachers, but even our office staff who work tirelessly, as well as our facilities management team who keep our school up and running, and our security team who keeps us safe. Thank you to all of you. This is a time to be grateful. Sadly, one of our district schools, Navajo Elementary, underwent a fire last week. Fortunately, no one was injured, but they are in need of donations to get back up and running again. So please consider dropping off your donation at the front office throughout the week. Scroll down further in the newsletter for more information on supplies needed, etc. Thank you everyone. Make it a great week Copper Ridge!

Hugs from Your Prez,
Carly Parkhill

Contributions to the ESF pay for teacher’s aides in lower grade levels, security cameras/systems, laptops and technology, family events, STEM curriculum and electives, teacher and grade level supplies and the list goes on and on…
Please make the suggested contribution of $125/student.

LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO HELP A FELLOW SCHOOL IN NEED


Navajo Elementary School was damaged by a fire last week. Thankfully, no one was harmed. However, students and teachers have to temporarily relocate to the Oak Campus. To support the Navajo Elementary community, we are hosting a supply drive for students and teachers. The supplies most needed are:

  • General school supplies, such as paper, pencils, crayons, and scissors
  • Office supplies, such as copy paper, pens, pencils, and staplers/staples
  • Gently used and new books for K-5th grades
  • Nurse's office supplies, such as band-aids
  • Gift cards for Target, Amazon, etc. 

We have collected supplies from what we have available, and hope you can help as well. Donations can be given to the front office this week.
