Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at Copper Canyon Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to make sure our students achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, all students need support from both home and school. A strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our students’ success, and we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by encouraging them to:

1) Attend school daily and arrive on time, ready for the day’s learning experiences.
(We miss them when they are not at school, and they miss important academic
content that cannot always be recovered.)
2) Complete all homework assignments given by teachers.
3) Read daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
(Make a commitment to read 20 mins a day with your child.)
4) Share school experiences with you so that you are aware of their school life.
5) Tell you if they need additional support in any area or subject.
6) Know that you expect them to succeed in school and have goals for college or
career readiness after high school.

As we begin this school year, we continue our school theme, Building Learners and Leaders With the 7 Habits.  Students will learn to set and accomplish many significant goals that prepare them to lead out in today’s world and be prepared for higher learning opportunities. Please ask your child about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids.

Please consider joining our school PTA and volunteer program. Our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions in and outside of the classroom.  Contact your child’s teacher for volunteer opportunities.

As we go forward with our many academic programs, it is our goal to educate the whole child—fostering and achieving academic, social, emotional, and character growth for every child. Know that we are ready to work with you to develop all students’ love of learning and help them discover their own unique talents and abilities. Please email your child’s teacher or schedule a meeting if you feel you need more support for your child’s success. You are also welcome to contact me for support. Let’s work together to make this a positive year of progress and achievement for EVERY CHILD!

Warm regards,
Patty Bowen, Principal
