CTE STAFF - TRY EVERYTHING


Dear CTE Community,
We know these past few weeks have been an entirely new experience for all of you. From all of us at CTE, we wanted to say "thank you" for putting on your teacher hats and supporting our kids. As a way to support you, we made this video. We appreciate you, your growth mindset, your flexibility, and most importantly your willingness to "Try Everything".

FROM THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR - JANE STEINER FAMILIES IN NEED OF FOOD

Hello Cherokee Trail Families, 

As we are moving through this challenging time together, the Food and Nutrition Department is providing a wonderful resource for ALL kids and teens. Free grab and go lunches will be provided at Challenger Park Monday-Friday from 11:30-12:30 to all kids and teens. Click here for more info.  

We are partnering with the Parker Task Force to see how we can assist families who are in need of additional food. If your family is in need of additional food support, please email Jane Steiner, School Counselor at [email protected]. We are hoping to have the additional food available at Challenger Park for family pick up on a set weekly day. Additional information will be provided to families after a list is compiled.

We will all get through this with the support of each other!

FROM THE AP - ROBIN HUNT

I want to thank all of you for your continued patience with remote learning. It has indeed been a steep learning curve for many in our community. I will say that things have settled some over the past week. Staff has been in good spirits. There was a dip in morale when we heard that we wouldn't be returning to school this year. We love our students and miss them terribly. We also miss all of the materials that made our jobs a little easier and more engaging. But, our staff has truly risen to the occasion, improvising as needed. I want to remind you that there will be no school on Friday, April 17th. This is a compensation day for teachers staying late for conferences prior to spring break. Also, there will be no school on Monday, April 20th. This is a district-wide professional development day. Please connect with your child’s teacher if you have any questions or are feeling overwhelmed with the expectations. We want this to be a win/win for community!
