Picture1.pngWinter is right around the corner and the snow is coming with it!  Here are a few things to think about as we enter the upcoming season:
1) Sign up for D-11 NTouch Program!  Get e-mails or text messages sent to you about school delays and closures.  Sign up for D-11 NTouch by clicking here!  Or you can follow the "Christa McAuliffe Elementary School at Cimmaron Hills" on Facebook! 
2) On days with icy roads or cold temperatures, please take your time getting to school.  Having your kids arrive a few minutes late to school is much better than having a car repair bill for the holiday season.  Keep your kids safe first! 
3) Get them bundled up!  Whether they are waiting for a bus or walking to school, standing in the frigid weather is uncomfortable.  Make sure they have gloves/mittens, hats, scarves, and coats so they keep warm.  And when they forget them at school, feel free to stop by and check out the Lost and Found! 
4) Look for the blue snowman flag outside the front doors.  On days where the wind chill is below freezing or if there is heavy snow, McAuliffe hangs a blue flag near the front doors to signify that students can come inside right away!  We don't want students waiting outside for their teachers when the weather is bad, so keep an eye open for that. 
Calling all Volunteers!

Would you like to volunteer at McAuliffe Elementary this school year?  We are always in need of volunteers to help out in our classrooms, in the library, on field trips, and for other events throughout the school year.  District 11 policy requires all volunteers to complete a Volunteer Registration Form.  Click here to begin your Volunteer Registration.

 All registration forms must be printed and brought into the McAuliffe office, along with a picture ID, to complete the volunteer registration process.  If you do not have access to a computer and/or printer, you may complete your volunteer registration form at McAuliffe.
If you have previously completed a Volunteer Registration form, there is no need to complete another one.  The office can check to see if you are still a registered volunteer.  If you have questions regarding the volunteer registration process or volunteer opportunities at McAuliffe, please call the office at 228-0900.
School Uniforms:
All students are expected to adhere to uniform policy at all times. Uniforms consist of beige khaki pants, shorts, or school appropriate skirts (no navy blue) along with a black, white, navy, or light blue shirt with a collar and no logo. There is no required brand for any part of the uniform. Special days will be designated as non-uniform days (picture day, pajama day, Halloween, etc.). On colder days, turtlenecks and sweaters that adhere to uniform colors are allowed.
For uniform assistance contact  the office at 719-228-0900
Car Pool:
Do you need help getting your children to and from school?  The Colorado Springs Transit Service provides the Metro Rides' School pool Program.  It is a free matching service to help parents find local car pools to aid in getting their kids to and from school.
