In addition to the numerous events happening in October, we are proud to announce that CCR was awarded an AZ Dept of Ed Character Counts Grant for $7,000! The grant includes a 3-Day professional development opportunity for 9 CCR teachers to attend The Flippen Group: Capturing Kids Hearts. This is a character counts program supported by A.D.E. which will align with our P.B.I.S. (Positive Behavior Intervention System) which we have developed at CCR.
Thank you to all of our families who were able to participate in the Student Council Fundraiser last month. Our student council made almost $5,000! The money will be used to support many activities that Student Council sponsors throughout the year and to purchase wish-list items that our students generated together.
Last, I want to announce that we have nominated Mr. Bravo, our 5th Grade Teacher at CCR for the 2014 Esperanza Award. CPLC along with its corporate and community partners established the Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards after realizing the impact Latino Teachers have on their students within the communities they serve. When translated into English “Esperanza” means “Hope,” and so this prestigious event recognizes outstanding Latino educators who are in essence, the hope for future generations. The Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards is the only awards program that recognizes outstanding Latino educators throughout Arizona. A total of four (4) teachers will be selected by a panel of educators and community leaders. The awards will be presented at the 16th Annual Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards, presented by SRP and Cox. Good Luck to Mr. Bravo, on his nomination and we thank him for his dedication to CCR students and families over the past few years.
We look forward to a positive quarter and hope to see all of you soon at CCR!
