Dear CTE Community,
After several months of recreating and building, I am excited to announce our new website will launch next week. The new website will bring students, parents, and community members news and information in a more concise, consistent fashion. The entire site is scheduled to go live on January 26, 2018. The URL will remain the same at cte.dcsdk12.org.
One of the first things you will notice is a uniform look and feel. The navigation is consistent throughout the new website. You will be able to find information more quickly and in many cases fewer clicks. We also made sure to include:
• News and announcements
• School and activity calendars
• Student information (links to schedules, grades, bus routes, etc.)
• Lunch menus
You will also notice a responsive design feature that automatically adjusts content depending on what device you’re using to access the site. The website will be easily accessible from any technology device—computers, tablets, and smartphones. Each view will be optimized for any screen size.
Our first Safety Committee Meeting is scheduled for January 31 at 3:45 pm.
Here's what's coming! - Please access the school calendar on CTE's website for specific times.

* Strive to Thrive (English / Spanish)
* Spanish flyer: (from Sarah's Spanish Scool Team) - : we have dropped the price for the Spanish classes this semester at your school to open up the class up to more families. It's best to have 5-10 students per class so that they get enough interaction in the language and enough participation in games and songs and such! Please let you parents know about the code NEWYEAR for an additional $25 off Spanish classes this semester!GIFTED & TALENTED NEWS DCAGT [Douglas County Association for the Gifted & Talented] DCSD Gifted Education News
