A Message from the our Board of Directors
CCA Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 10th, at 6:00 p.m. in the library.  One of the agenda items that the Governance Committee will be discussing is updating the CCA Non-Negotiables in order to update them to current standards. Although the suggested changes are primarily wording, we invite community participation in this process.  The CCA Board meeting is set up to have community input at the beginning of each meeting (so please arrive on-time).  You will have opportunities to provide feedback between September 10th - Oct 8th and the plan is to vote on the final Non-Negotiables at the October 8th Board meeting. We will use the Eagle to communicate those feedback opportunities. If you have any questions about this process, please reach out to Andrea Evashevski, Board Vice President, at  aevashevski@cherrycreekacademy.org .
We are on our 2nd week of sales for the Charleston Wrap Fundraiser. Did you know that PTO uses these funds to put on the annual carnival, the Multicultural Festival, Pastries for Parents, and other fun activities for our students and families. Don't forget to have your child drop off any prize tags by Wednesday to be entered into a drawing for a free dress day. 

The PTO is also still accepting fundraiser opt out forms. If you choose to donate directly in lieu of the fundraiser, your child will receive their keychain prize on September 20, 2019. The opt-out donation will also count toward your child's classroom total.

All forms must be returned to CCA by September 13, 2019 , and the winning classes will be announced September 20, 2019.

Our PTO Fundraising Committee also needs your help! They are looking for volunteers to help distribute prizes during lunch on Fridays! Please click here to sign up to volunteer.

If you have, your child was recognized by a CCA staff member as a Caring Community member. Caring Community is a school wide program that honors students who demonstrate one of CCA's eight character traits: l eadership, responsibility, respect, loyalty, integrity, humility, diligence and compassion .

Bimonthly, a name from each grade level is drawn for the monthly Caring Community winners. Free dress and a prize is awarded to these students.

injustice or stress?
  • Does your child’s emotional roller coaster leave you feeling drained and
angry on a daily basis?
  • Do you find that discipline strategies that work well for most kids only
seem to make the problem worse for yours?
  • Does your child get “stuck,” seemingly unable to move on or think about
things in a flexible manner?

If so, then this class is for you!
