(Para espanol desplazar hacia abajo): Our Mission: The mission of Crown Pointe Academy is to promote creativity, curiosity, character, and community in a challenging Core Knowledge environment. A special message from Mr. Ouweneel: Amazingly, it’s only been two school weeks since classes were cancelled (one week was spring break), but it feels like a lifetime ago.  As we struggle to get through all of this, it occurs to me just how much we take for granted. Activities like going to the movies, watching sports, or just eating out are now on hold.   For us to get through this, we have to pause those things for a while in order to save as many lives as possible.  So we’ll adapt, and that means each day is its own thing. Since we can’t look too far into the future, it’s now more important than ever to treat each day as unique and special.  Routines are thrown into chaos and it’s hard to find things to anchor to.  Having activities that are normal-ish, like school, are key in helping kids have a sense of belonging and purpose. When we started planning for an online learning environment, we established a few goals; we wanted it to be engaging, encouraging, and build a sense of community while at the same time being both academic and fun.  The staff has worked hard to create that environment in a very short period of time.   We knew there would be issues (and there have been a few), but the goals were too important. We wanted kids to feel like they had a place they belonged—even if it was a virtual one. So while you are keeping your family safe, we will continue to support you and your children in their learning and development as best we can.  This is all brand new to us too.  If you have needs, questions, or thoughts, please share them with us.  We want to be better at this so when things do return to normal, kids feel like the adults were there for them through it all. Monday Email Blast:  Today marks the start of our second week of online learning.  We heard from many that each day got a little easier last week as students, parents, and teachers got the hang of things, and we hope that trend will continue this week.  If you have any questions, email your student’s teacher first, but know that Mr. O and Mrs. Keyes are available by email if you need help. Last week, Governor Jared Polis announced that schools would remain closed through April 30th.  Shortly thereafter, many metro-area superintendents announced that in person classes would not resume this school year. ...
