Message From the Principal
I would like to take an opportunity to thank you for sending in your feedback for our final survey on Student Uniforms at CCR. Our results reflect the feedback of 400 Circle Cross Ranch families. In order for this initiative to be successful, we would have needed an 80% show of support. The overall results were really split on most of the questions. It is very apparent that our STEM Academy School is supported by parents, however the transition to becoming a student uniforms school is not possible at this point in time. Please click the Read More link at the bottom to review survey results on next page.
Please know that everyone’s feedback and opinions are valued and appreciated. Moving forward, we want to continue to celebrate CCR’s successes over the past few years moving from a C-Letter Grade to an A+ School of Excellence and a Highly Effective S.T.E.M. Academy that gives all students the opportunity to experience STEM Education. We will continue with our 3-Year Implementation Plan, adjusting as necessary and building on the programs, resources and activities that we have established. If parents would like to revisit the idea of student uniforms in the next few years, we will be glad to conduct more surveys then and discuss the possibilities. Thank you again for helping us make an informed decision and taking part in providing us with your feedback.
As we continue in 2nd semester, we encourage you to mark your calendar for our FIRST ANNUAL S.T.E.M. Showcase Event on March 8th at 6:00 pm in the gym. This will be the first time we showcase all of the STEM Resources we have accumulated through grants and donations and have our students show parents and visitors how they are using these resources in their classrooms, electives and clubs. If you are really curious to see exactly what your children are doing with STEM at CCR, this is the event you will not want to miss! If you have friends that would like to consider CCR K-8 STEM Academy for their children next year, please feel free to invite them to come with you to this event.
We look forward to seeing you at parent conferences this month and at our annual Daddy Daughter Dance! Have a wonderful week!
