Wishing Winter Carpool Away?
We hear you! Our Carpool IA's are sure looking forward to balmier days and more forgiving temps. But we've got several more weeks of serious winter to get through together, so drive through carpool carefully, make sure your students come to school with cold weather clothes in their backpacks (if not on their bodies), and volunteer!! This time of year even our most intrepid carpool regulars get worn out - visit the Volunteer page to sign up or just show up by 7:20 am. We'd sure love the help!

Stock Up on Spring Reading at CP!
CP - Mark your calendar and plan on stopping by the Castle Pines library March 9 -13 for the USBORNE Book Fair! Usborne is an independent publisher of amazing books from the UK. The book fair will offer both fiction and non-fiction so there is sure to be something to engage your child! This is the perfect opportunity to stock up on books to keep your student reading throughout the rest of the school year and in to the summer!

Do you still need some volunteer hours? If so, we would LOVE your help at the book fair! Please click here to sign up. The book fair will be open Monday - Thursday, 7:30 am - 4:30 pm, and Friday, 7:30 am - 2:00 pm.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Yu.

TDAP Immunizations REQUIRED for 15-16 Grade 6
CP&PKR - Important! Because of the current, state-wide pertussis epidemic, all incoming 2015-2016 6th graders MUST receive the Tdap immunization prior to beginning the next school year!

Even if your child has been previously immunized, he or she MUST be revaccinated before the start of the 2015-2016 school year to ensure immunity and public safety. Please read the attached letter from our district nurse, Paulette Joswick, and contact Ms. Joswick if you have any questions about this requirement.

Yearbooks for Sale!
CP&PKR - They won’t deliver until the end of the school year, but you can purchase yearbooks for 2014-2015 right now! Just visit LifeTouch to choose from hard cover or soft cover, or even to personalize your student’s yearbook. Be sure to print out a receipt of your order for your records. All yearbook orders must be placed by April 10, 2015. Don't forget to use the right campus ID code when you purchase!
