Parents, did you know that the CCSD parent survey counts towards our points for our state STAR Rating? It does and
we can really use your participation. Please take 5 minutes to complete the parent survey, it can be done using your
cellphone or on a computer. The link is below. The survey closes December 20th. Once you complete the survey, please
email your child’s teacher and they will receive a free-night homework pass.

From our Cox family to yours, we wish your families a wonderful holiday
break and best wishes in the New Year!
