August 2016

From the Director

On Thursday, August 11th, we will officially kick-off the 2016-17 school year with our annual Open House event.  Teachers and staff returned this past Monday to begin preparations for the new school year, and we are all eager to welcome back our fabulous students and families!  This year, we are inviting all new families to attend the Open House (12:00 P.M.) as a group so that we can spend some additional time assisting you with questions and other start-up needs.  All returning PCK families will arrive after 1 p.m. in staggered groups based on LAST NAME. For information about our Open House, and your assigned alphabetical time slot, please visit the PCK website at  

As always, the summer was busy and quick here at school.  All new PCK staff completed a New Employee Orientation July 11 – 15, and they are excited to meet our students and families on August 11th.  By way of summary, please note the staffing changes for the new year:
Resource Teacher Team –  
Jennifer Winters and Kari Strobel will replace Jenna Gray who left to attend seminary, and Lisa Freyschlag who retired!
PE/Health –
Travis Cruz and Trevor Minshall will replace Drew Collette who moved back to Michigan, and Amy Rodriguez who moved to a Middle School in Highland’s Ranch
Spanish Team – 
Aaron Thompson and Christie Thompson (no relation) will replace Lorna Soto (moved to High School in Cherry Creek), and Devany Bourdo who will have a baby and reduce her schedule to quarter time.
Classrooms –
Bonnie Becker will move up to 6th grade to replace DelRae Holt who moved to Grand Junction
Breanna Warburton will replace Bonnie Becker on the 5th grade team
Lindsey Donovan joined the 1st grade team in March, and will continue in 1st grade
School Counselor –
Erin McClure will replace Charissa Johnson who got married and moved to Chicago
We are still in the hunt for a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) for our Special Education team, so if you know of someone who is a licensed SLP and looking for part-time work, please have them contact me ASAP.
I hope you all had a wonderful summer break – I can’t wait to hear the stories of all the great trips and cool activities our students enjoyed this past summer!  See you on Thursday.
