1st Grader Brennan Lindholm wins Holiday Wreath fundraiser award!

December 2016

Castle Rock Elementary embarked in their second annual Holiday Wreath fundraiser this November. Students were given two weeks to sell a variety of holiday wreath and decorate door hanger products to their families, friends and neighbors. As an incentive for students to put their best salesman/saleswoman foot forward, the PTO offered a prize: two front row tickets to the upcoming CRE production of "The Lion King Experience" on December 8 at 6pm. 

First grader Brennan Lindholm took to the challenge. Within the two week time frame, he collected two full order forms. It was then decided that the students may have an extra day to sell, and Brennan took advantage of this by bringing in an additional order forms that were packed with orders! In total, Brennan sold 33 Holiday Wreath products from this fundraiser! Brennan, pictured above, was thrilled to receive his tickets! He and his family are looking forward to seeing the performance later this week. 

In all, the CRE student body did a fantastic job with sharing this opportunity to beautify their community. The sales from this year more than doubled from last years fundraiser. 

Congratulations Brennan, and to all of the CRE students and families to helped make this fundraiser a huge success! Happy Holidays from CRE!

District News

While the holidays are often a joyous time with friends and family, we know that they can also be stressful, not just for adults, but for children too. In addition to the annual pressure of gift giving, family gathering and travel, the holidays can trigger memories of the loss of loved ones and other traumatic events.

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.
