THE BLAZE NEWSLETTER
Week of September 4, 2018
Dear Copper Ridge Family,

I feel like belting out in song “Looks like we made it!” as we cross over into September!

September is home to our beloved, one of kind, get-your-kid-out-of-Fortnite-and-into-a-book Book Fair! New families, the Copper Ridge Book Fair is like nothing you have ever seen. I encourage all parents and guardians to please join us any of the mornings between 730-830am Sept. 21 st, 24 th, 25 th, and 26 th. Grab a donut with your kiddo, purchase some spirit wear, and be truly amazed by the transformation of the auditorium as you make a contribution to your child’s literacy development. Veteran Parents if you THOUGHT Traveling down the rabbit hole last year wowed you, get ready for trip into an Enchanted Forest!

Don’t forget Copper Ridge- NO NEED TO MAKE DINNER IN SEPTEMBER! Let the Vig be your place for family dinner, or order and pick-up! Tell your server AND write “Copper Ridge” on your receipt, and 15% will go back to CRS.

SEE YOU ALL AT OUR PTO MEETING WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 5 TH, 9am ROOM 608. Book Fair Flyer assembly will follow as well the Middle School Committee Meeting.

Love and Hugs,

Your CRPTO Prez- Carly Parkhill

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.
