Principal's Corner

Winter 2014

How exciting to begin the second semester of the 
2013-14 school year with the fabulous Colts of CCE! Amazing things continue to happen at Cottonwood Creek, and we are thrilled with the leadership and learning that takes place each and every day!

Thanks to your generosity through our PTO, Cottonwood Creek was able to apply for and receive a CISD Matching Funds grant for over $53,000. With the grant money, we purchased 39 MacBook Pros and two classroom projectors. The MacBook Pros are being used in every classroom for creating and communicating with the world. We will be scheduling a “TechKnow” Night this spring to showcase all of the incredible learning that is happening via the integration of technology at CCE!

In December, the CISD Education Foundation awarded CCE two grants! Ms. Gilstrap received $2000 for her grant, “Community Garden”, to help purchase materials for our school garden. Our kindergarten team, under the leadership of Stacey Harris, was awarded $2300 for their “Little Eyes See Big Things” grant. This grant enabled us to purchase scopes that connect to iPads which allow our learners to capture and magnify digital images. We are proud of our educators for seeking alternate ways to fund innovative learning opportunities for our learners. Thank you to the Grafflin family and Zeiss Microscopy for their generous donation of the stereomicroscope to our learners. The microscope magnifies objects through a high powered zoom lens so learners can observe objects in new and more engaging ways.

Please join us in congratulating our CCE Assistant Principal Chantel Kastrounis who has been named as Principal of the new
Robert J. Lee Elementary in CISD! Chantel has been a part of the CCE family for four years, and it is certainly bittersweet to see her leave! She is loved by our children and our staff…and will be truly missed! She will begin working in her new role within the next few weeks!

It appears that our Cottonwood Creek families will not be affected by boundary realignment in CISD. While an official notification will come later this month, all indications are that CCE will remain as is, and sixth grade learners from our campus will attend CMS West.

Make sure you are “in the know” by subscribing to our PTO/CCE weekly electronic newsletter, The Weekly Watch, which is sent to your email account. Cottonwood Creek continues to set the bar for constructivist teaching and learning! We invite you to share in our learning experiences by following us via Twitter @CCEColts and on our Facebook page. These are great tools for keeping parents informed and connected with school-wide and district events.

Keep an eye on our campus website calendar for upcoming CCE events.  We have an exciting Spring ahead of us!

Your Principal,

Andra Penny
