Marvelous Multicultural Festival, Rad Reading, Fabulous Fundraising, & Volunteer Appreciation
Thank you to the students, staff, and volunteers for making the Multicultural Festival such an amazing and special event! Diversity is one of the best things about CCA and it was wonderful to celebrate and showcase our community!

A special thanks to the PTO's Multicultural Committee, Rohini Ananthakrishnan, Julia Park, Subha Thoppay, and Gohar Tovbis and teachers Kyra Tench and Alexa Labozan for organizing this marvelous event.
Congratulations to our K - 6 graders! The Dolphins won this year’s ULTIMATE Prize and had a great time celebrating with fun hats, ice-cream floats, and lots of fun! Congratulations to our K - 6 graders! The Dolphins won this year’s ULTIMATE Prize, that will awarded tomorrow!
Both Sharks and Dolphins have earned Mismatch Day!
Wednesday, April 3 is Mismatch Day for the K - 6th. Students may dress in clothes that clash. Other ideas include wearing shoes that do not match or sport a shirt with one arm cut shorter than the other. Keep in mind that this is not a free dress day or crazy hair day. Please follow the school dress code including the following guidelines.
  • Students should not wear tank tops, spaghetti straps, or anything inappropriately revealing.
  • Shoes must have hard soles, have a back and covered toe, and heels may be no higher than 2 inches.
  • No cleats, Heelys or flip-flops.
Thank you everyone who raised money gave a solid start to Student Council's fundraiser. CCA Student Council with helping kids with cancer and the doctors and scientists who are researching a cure get funding to do so. Together, we raised $657.34 in the first week.

Student Council's goal is to raise $4,000. If Student Council reaches that goal, there will be a pretty epic all school event at the end of the year.

The class who raises the most money will get a free lunch from Olive Garden and a Pennies for Patients Swag Bag! Mr. Gunning's class is in the lead with $91.21 raised so far.

If Student Council exceeds their $4,000 goal, all CCA students will get a free dress day!
On behalf of the students and staff at Cherry Creek Academy, we would like say THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers. The hours you dedicate help to make our school truly amazing!

In honor of YOU, we would like to extend an invitation for breakfast on Friday, April 19, 2019 from 7:30 - 8 a.m.

We hope you will join us! Please use the button below to RSVP.

6th Annual Fun Run
Friday, May 3
The 6th Annual CCA Fun Run is bringing some great changes coming this year! The CCA Foundation has brought an organization called “Boosterathon” to coordinate the entire event. Boosterathon does a tremendous job, and with their energy and fundraising tools, it will be an awesome day!

Parents of grades K-4, plan on your kids running between 8:30 and 9:30, and parents of grades 5-8, your students will be on the field from 9:45-10:45. There will be two “tracks” to run on, and lots of Boosterathon staff to help. They’re very experienced with these events so it’s organized and not chaotic.

Volunteers will once again be needed to mark laps. Volunteer information and sign up coming soon.
Don’t miss it! Come out and cheer on your children!!
