"hello march" written on paper

Dear Colorado Skies Academy Families, It’s difficult to believe that it’s already March! To celebrate March Madness (and highlight Cherry Creek’s excellent school breakfast and lunch program), we encourage all of our students to buy and eat breakfast and lunch with us at CSA to be entered to win fun prizes. You can see the prizes and timelines below in the Upcoming Events section. In order to participate, either send cash with your learner or be sure their Titan account has enough funds to purchase breakfast and/or lunch at school. (Note that students must be finished eating by 8 am in order to report to class on time!) Help us congratulate our Bravo Squadron learners! They earned the most points in February and will be designated as our Honor Squadron for the next month. Keep up the good work!!

Please check out the “Upcoming Events” calendar as well as the detailed articles below for more information regarding:

  • End of Quarter 3
  • Yearbook Orders
  • Chromebook Use (and Abuse)
  • Volunteers Needed for Lunch & Recess
  • Postponed: Spring MAP Window
  • Thought of the Week

Thank you for your attention to these important issues. As always, feel free to reach out to me with additional questions and concerns!
