PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

Hope everyone is having a great week. Currently the principal chronicles are in Florida for the MLS combine. Although you would think it's beach and sunshine, it's really beach, wind and rain. We will try to put something entertaining together for next week's edition. Have a great week.

Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...


FROM THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL - ROBIN HUNT

Parents,
We've had a few issues with our carpool lane before and after school. Please remember the carpool lane is not for parking. Parked cars impede our carpool process. Thanks for your diligence in working to keep our students safe!

Student Council has chosen their next charity for our school community. We will be making a donation to the American Diabetes Association. The students are excited about this fundraiser as it hits close to home. CTE has several students who are affected by Diabetes, either personally or through family members.

To raise funds we will have a Penny-n-Paper War. Student Council will be collecting donations by grade level during lunch. The grade level which collects the most points will win a party. Here are the basic rules:

  • Pennies count as positive
  • Silver coins count as negative
  • Paper money counts as positive
  • Example - in the basket is a five dollar bill (+500 pts), two nickels (-10 pts), and fifty pennies (+50 pts) = 540 pts
We will begin collecting funds on Friday, 1/8, and finish on Friday, 1/22. We may extend it depending on interest.

As always, thanks for your support of our school community!

District News

On February 9 the PACE Center hosted Portfolio Day for students like Sladovnik. It was an opportunity for critiques from working professional artists, and workshops. It culminates in the "Bright Futures" art exhibit - a showcase of selected work on display February 16-27.

Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members. This task force will develop a survey for parents of students eligible for special education services and a survey for staff members who serve students eligible for special education services.

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”
