THE BLAZE NEWSLETTER
Week of September 11, 2018
My Dearest Copper Ridge Family,

First of all, a MASSIVE thank you to all of you who made it to our first official PTO Meeting last Wednesday. With over 50 of you there, I hope you will share all the great information regarding our AZ Merit achievements, the excitement for our magical Enchanted Forest Book Fair, and the anticipation of our spectacular October Carnival! 

Secondly, I just want to take a moment to ask you all, “What is important to you regarding your child’s education?” Are you looking for reading programs to help their literacy? Are you looking for technological experiences to advance their engineering abilities? Maybe what you are looking for are more challenging courses to take them to the next level in mathematics and ELA? Or perhaps you are just looking for a reason to not send your student to school with a phone. Let me share with you how your Copper Ridge PTO Education Support Fund actually has a hand in all of the above. With limited funding from the Scottsdale Unified School District, YOUR contributions to this fund give YOUR children incredible reading programs, STEM courses, Middle School Honors curriculum, AND almost a one to one ratio of laptop to student! Please don’t hesitate. Please help us build this fund, and provide the luxuries of what a private school offers HERE- at your sweet home Copper Ridge. Click here for more information and to contribute now

Have a wonderful week Copper Ridge Family!

Love and Hugs,
Carly Parkhill- your PTO Prez

Education Support Fund (ESF)

If you have not already, please consider making your student's annual contribution to the ESF!

What is the ESF?

The Education Support Fund or ESF is an annual fund built by the generous contributions of CRS families that sponsors educational programs, events and activities at CRS that are not funded by the Scottsdale Unified School District. 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.
