Message From Mrs. Hendry


Dear CCR Families,


December was a short month but our students and staff accomplished a lot!  We are excited to highlight that our students hosted the first band concert of the year.  Our cafeteria was full of parents and family members.  Our beginners' band and junior high band played a variety of musical pieces that the audience really enjoyed.  All of the students did an outstanding job!


On Saturday, Dec. 6th, our DC Alive Club hosted a pancake breakfast with Santa for our community.  The money raised went towards lowering the overall cost of the Washington D.C. field trip scheduled in May 2015.  Currently, we have 19 students planning to attend D.C. Fieldtrip.


On another positive note, we were notified by Tammy Fischer, Board of Directors & Chairperson for the Drug Awareness Campaign in Pinal County and she announced that CCR had several students win the essay contest and poster contest!  Specifically, Tammy said, "The guidelines of the essay contest stated only 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners; However, your students at Circle Cross Ranch presented such amazing work that the Elks Board Of Directors felt it necessary to include the top 5 essays."


The Elks Lodge also invited these 5 sixth grade students along with their parents and principal for dinner & award distribution in January.   CCR's winners included:


*          1st place winner.... 6th grade, Zoe Obsitnick

*          2nd place winner.... 6th grade, Briana Figueroa

*          3rd place winner....  6th grade, Kortnee D'Addabbo

*          Honorable Mention.... 6th grade, Alexa Swei

*          Honorable Mention-----  6th grade, Liliana Barrios


The younger students at Circle Cross Ranch who participated in the Drug Awareness Poster Contest also did exceptionally well. Circle Cross Ranch students earned four awards total from the 10 Florence & Coolidge Schools that participated.  These students will also be invited along with parents and teachers to the Elks Lodge for dinner and awards on the same night as the 6th graders.


*          2nd Place, 3rd grade division, Ruby Miles

*          2nd Place,  4th Grade division, Joshua G-Williams

*          1st Place,  5th grade division, Emily Mc Kane

*          Honorable Mention, 5th grade division,  Joanna Labija


Both Cheetah soccer teams entered the playoffs with excitement and hope of winning a district championship. Both teams won their first round games and advanced to the second round of the playoffs. The girls' team lost a heartbreaker to Walker Butte, 2-1 and our boys' team advanced to the Championship Game and WON against Magma Ranch 1-0! Way to go Cheetahs!!!


Mr. Johnson also hosted our annual Sports Awards Banquet on December 10th.  We had a cafeteria full of parents and family members who came to support their athlete.  We hosted the event pot luck style for dessert.  It was a great way for our school community to get together and celebrate the extra-curricular accomplishments of our students.


We are looking forward to an exciting second semester at CCR!  We will welcome a new kindergarten classroom which Mrs. Snyder will teach.  Adding this classroom will lower our kindergarten class size to about 22 students per class.  Our kinder team is very excited for this new addition.


We hope that your family has a wonderful winter break and we look forward to seeing you all back on January 5th, 2015!
