Dear CRES Parents,

It is the end of the first trimester already, so you can be expecting report cards to come home soon (Nov. 20).  We hope your child is enjoying their year so far; if that is not the case, please contact me directly.  Holiday season is upon us.  I hope you enjoyed the Halloween parade and many thanks to our great volunteers for helping with the parties!  It was great seeing the excitement on our students’ faces!  Below is a list of important events and information:

  • Family Thanksgiving Lunch on Thurs. 11/19.  Thank you for purchasing tickets in advance!

  • Turkey Trot at 11/20 2:30 (weather permitting).  Parents and alumni are welcome to participate!

  • 2nd Annual 5th Grade Turkey Round-up!  5th grade students and teachers collect turkeys curbside for donation to Larimer Co. Food Bank.  We collected ~50 last year, and it was awesome.  I know we can do even better this year!

  • The School Accountability Committee (SAC) has spent the last two meetings learning about and discussing the CRES School Unified Improvement Plan (SUIP).  The latest draft is attached to this email.  Please feel free to offer feedback and/or questions, and many thanks to SAC for your very important work!

  • Many thanks to PTO for: providing delicious meals for teachers during conferences; purchasing new walkie-talkies to promote student safety; purchasing Pebble-Go, an important research resource our students and teachers use regularly, and which can be accessed from home as well.

  • We have had the first snow, and they are predicting a heavy winter.  Thank you for dressing students for the weather and taking extra precautions when driving near the school.

  • There will be no school for students during the week of Thanksgiving.  This is new this year, and is because Monday is a teacher work day, and Tuesday is a compensation day for the two nights of parent/teacher conferences.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends!

  • We are always looking to improve communication and processes.  Toward that end, please click here to take a very brief but very important survey.


Sincerely yours,


Deon Davis, Principal
