PSP NEWS School Supply Kits: Want to avoid buying school supplies this summer and have supplies delivered right to the classroom?? Then place your order for next school year by June 1st. There are additional items available like backpacks, lunch boxes, and more! All kits will be delivered directly to CTE prior to Open House in August. Restaurant Day at Swirls: It's our last restaurant day of the year next Thursday, May 24th at Swirl's, downtown Parker. You can go any time during normal business hours, 11:00am - 10:00pm, and let them know you are there to support CTE. Thank you to all who have attended restaurant nights this school year! You have helped fulfill many needs at our school.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL - JOSH MILLER


The Principal Chronicles continue ... As I write this, it is Wednesday morning and we have just over one week left of school (not that we are counting). This time of year everything moves so fast. Trying to get report cards done, STEAM Day, Field Day, plus Kindergarten and 6th-grade graduation AND the 50 million other things that we have going on. Holy cow!! Even though things are super busy, I love this time of year because the growth our students have made during the year becomes very evident. Whether it is STEAM Day or Field Day or just looking into classrooms, it is really amazing how much our students' hard work has paid off. Typically this year, I feel like a proud papa. Other than that, on the home front, well I don't really know what is going on at the home front since there have been so many late nights here at CTE. I have been basically going home and going to bed. Yet another great reason for summer break, getting to know my family again. Sorry, this is so short but I am off to a meeting. Stay tuned for the final 2017-2018 edition of the Principal Chronicles. See you next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...
