THE BLAZE NEWSLETTER
Week of August 20, 2018
Hey Copper Ridge Family!

Well, we made it through a full week of school WITH a couple of hot and sweaty Curriculum Nights! Way to power through CRS families 😊 It is always so wonderful to see you all on campus- truly makes my day! We have important dates coming up in September, kicking it off with our first official PTO meeting on Sept. 5 th, followed by our show-stopping, AH-MAZE-ING Book Fair in the middle of September. Until then, we hope to see your name on our Volunteer List- be it signing up for Room Mom or even just an hour of your time for making copies. Your valuable time is sincerely appreciated. We are also sending virtual warm, fuzzy hugs to all the families who have already donated into the Education Support Fund (ESF). Please know ANY contribution helps make a HUGE difference in your child’s academic experience!
 
Lots of Love for Ya Copper Ridge!
Your 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…
